The holidays are coming early for Sense8 fans.
Netflix will debut a Christmas special for the series on Friday, Dec. 23, at 12:01 am PT/3:01 am ET.
In the one-off, “eight singular hearts and minds weave in and out of each other’s lives finding deeper connections, learning darker, more desperate secrets about one another and struggling to identify with more than just oneself,” reads the official description.
Season 2 of the drama premieres Friday, May 5, at 12:01 am PT.
In the new episodes, picking up where Season 1 ended, “Capheus (Toby Onwumere), Kala (Tina Desai), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Riley (Tuppence Middleton) , Sun (Donna Bae), Will (Brian J. Smith) and Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs. On the run from Whispers (Terrence Mann), and forced to question their very identity, it’s a matter of survival as the Sensates must find a way to live with, understand and protect one another against all odds.”
