Watch the trailer for Netflix’s ‘Sense8’ Christmas special

Netflix‘s Sense8 returns with a two-hour special this week, joining Black Mirror on the list of weird, adult sci-fi shows with unexpected Christmas episodes.

The episode trailer shows the return of the eight sensates, with Toby Onwumere recast as the Nairobi bus driver Capheus. Strangely enough, Sense8 feels appropriate for a holiday special. It may be a tense and often violent sci-fi thriller, but at its heart, it’s a story about family.

The Sense8 Christmas special arrives on Dec. 23.
