‘Sense8’ Celebrates Even More Holidays in New Season 2 Photos
Once upon a time, Netflix seemed deathly quiet on Sense8 Season 2, but now that we’ve celebrated a Christmas special, even more parties lie in store for the official second season. Ahead of its May premiere, Netflix shared a baker’s dozen new images of the gang everywhere from Valentine’s Day to Pride, and with a few guest stars thrown in for good measure.
Things seem mostly unchanged for the Sensates in new Season 2 photos, still partying it up in lavish locales around the globe (with no sign of Whispers in sight). Intriguingly, the photos also appear to reveal Love star Andy Dick and American Horror Story favorite Cheyenne Jackson in guest roles.
Set for a May 5 premiere, so reads the official Season 2 synopsis:
Picking up where season one left off, Capheus, Kala, Lito, Nomi, Riley, Sun, Will and Wolfgang come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs. On the run from Whispers, 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.
Elsewhere, we know that the next run will again see the departure of star Aml Ameen, as well as Wachowski sibling Lilly, leaving Lana in a solo directing position. Lilly sat out the season to “focus on her well-being” after coming out as transgender, and may return for a potential third season.
For those unfamiliar, Sense8 follows eight characters around the world who find themselves mentally and emotionally linked in the aftermath of a mysterious death. Its cast includes Daryl Hannah, LOST star Naveen Andrews, Brian J. Smith (Stargate: Universe), Tuppence Middleton (Jupiter Ascending), Jamie Clayton, Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Indian actress Tena Desae, South Korean actress Doona Bae, German actor Max Riemelt, Mexican actors Alfonso Herrera and Erendira Ibarra, as well as Miguel Silvestre and Terrence Mann.
We’ll see footage eventually, but stay tuned for the latest on Sense8 season 2 in May.
