Sense8 Season 2 is practically at our doorstep, but why save one of the big reveals for our actual premiere? There’s an evil cluster afoot, as Sensates battle Sensates in a globe-trotting, delightfully absurd new trailer for the Wachowski drama’s return.

Netflix released a second full Sense8 Season 2 trailer on the eve of its May 5 premiere, largely retreading the fugitive status of its eight members, and doubling-down on the battle with Whispers. One particular highlight, however, sees our title cluster squaring off against another group of eight, even mimicking their movements in a fight.

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 continue 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.

We’ll learn more over the weekend, but check out the first photos and trailer below, and stay tuned for more Sense8 Season 2.
