Watch 8 Trailers For Netflix’s Sense8 Original Series
The Sensate are coming.
Eight people from around the world are about to realize their intense telepathic connection with each other. They are no longer individuals, they are simply extensions of each other with access to the thoughts, the talents and the secrets that they all possess. And someone is trying to kill them.
That’s the premise of Sense8, a new Netflix original sci-fi series from J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5) and The Matrix trilogy directors, Andy and Lana Wachowski.
