We’re so hyped for the Wachowskis’ upcoming Netflix series Sense8 that we didn’t think anything could make us more excited, but the latest promo release of trailers for all of the titular eight characters have proven us wrong.

Just check out this opening trailer in which we see a Korean office drone named Sun unloading some of her new superstrength on her coworkers:


As we learned from the first trailer, the notably multicultural show, which features Lost’s Naveen Andrews, focuses on a group of eight people across the world who discover they’ve become psychically linked. Think Orphan Black meets Heroes, but with more diversity.

If that sounds enticing, the rest is even better. The ensemble cast includes, per TV Line, “a closeted Mexican telenovela hunk, an Icelandic party girl, a German safe-cracker… an African bus driver and a transgender American blogger.” There’s also “Jonas, an apparently magic African-American who appears to all of the ‘visionaries,’ and his evil counterpart, Mr. Whispers.”

If all of that doesn’t sway you, these trailers will.








Sense8 lands on Netflix on June 5, which is a week longer than we are prepared to wait for this awesomeness. Bring on the Bollywood psychic genderqueer pansexual soulbonding, guys; we can’t wait.
