Sense8 season 2 airs on Netflix on May 5, 2017. I loved the first season and the Christmas/Holiday special was a nice way to tide me over. It was also a great introduction to Toby Onwumere playing as the new Capheus “Van Damme” Onyango. Former actor, Aml Ameen left the series.
If you have not watched Sense8, you should. It is a great Netflix series that I was not expecting to like as much as I did. The premise is around 8 individuals from all around the world that suddenly have their ‘senses’ connected together both empathically/telepathically in ways that most people cannot perceive. Not a lot of series have really ever explored a premise like this.
Besides being a great story, this show also covers gender identity, sexuality and relationships that transcend what most other shows shy away from. Tie in that an evil organization is trying to capture them and experiment and/or lobotomize them, just makes it even better.
I admit, I have cried watching this series. The emotional aspect of it is touching and sweet at times. So it’s something that I’m counting down the days to watch. Anyone else excited?
