The Sense8 Trailer makes Promises

The first season broke me, and the Christmas special, despite mostly taking place in summer, was by far the best part of late December. But what everyone wants to know is: will Sense8’s second season live up to the quality that we’ve all come to expect from it?

The good news is that we don’t have to wait long because it’s dropping on Netflix on May 5, (Only 23 more sleeps!) and we have an official trailer:

Themes! Art History! Sun kicking ass and running around in her bra!

No, I’m on the hype train. There are a lot of clues to the larger story, and the conflicts within the sensate community about what their role should be—not to mention their view of themselves as some kind of advancement of humanity. (An idea that itself has the potential to become very morally grey.) And I adore the obvious emphasis on our cluster and their bonding, as well as the continued presence of all the important people in their lives. (If only we could all have a girlfriend like Nomi’s…)

Any reservations? Well, this trailer is not making me feel any better about certain characters (I’m talking mostly about Capheus) always seeming to be on the sidelines. while others get all the cool trailer lines. Not that Nomi and Will aren’t awesome. I’m concerned about the writers’ ability to make the whole cluster participate in the larger story in an organic way, as spread all over the globe as they are.

But this show has earned my patience. And I’m really glad May 5 is a Friday.
