Sense8 - Series finale trailer

Netflix has released a trailer for the series finale of Sense8 designed to wrap up the series following its cancellation in 2017.

The series from the Wachowskis, the filmmaking duo behind The Matrix, follows a cluster of eight 'sensates', strangers from across the globe who have been linked mentally and emotionally to one another since birth.

This final episode will see this cluster work together “to protect the future of sensates.”

Its ensemble includes Max Riemelt, Toby Onwumere, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Jamie Clayton, Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, and Brian J. Smith all appear as well as Lost star Naveen Andrews.

Following the streaming service's announcement that season two of the Wachowskis' sci-fi drama was to be the last, viewers expressed their upset via Twitter championing a #RenewSense8 campaign which prompted Netflix to reconsider its decision. It later announced a two-hour finale.

The series scored positive reviews from critics who praised the show's inclusion of characters from various cultures (Mumbai, Seoul, Berlin, San Francisco and London all feature prominently as locations) as well as LGBTQ themes led by gay character Lito Rodriguez (Silvestre) and Nomi Marks who is played by transgender star Clayton.

Sense8's series finale will come to Netflix on 8 June.
