We’ve got great news for ‘Sense8‘ fans today as we can not only confirm the Christmas Special that we recently mentioned but also when Season 2 of this hit series is set to air! Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski’s mad little science fiction world is officially giving us more! Even better, we’ve got a few new shots from the second season to whet your whistle while we wait for 2017 to come around and give us the next binge-worthy installment.

‘Sense8: A Christmas Special’ is officially set to drop on Friday, December 23rd, 2016 and we’ve also got the synopsis for the episode to share with you:

The journey continues as these eight singular hearts and minds weave in and out of each other’s lives finding deeper connections, learning darker, more desperate secrets about one another and struggling to identify with more than just oneself.

For the second season details, which let’s be honest is what you’re here for, we’ll be seeing the ten-episode season drop on Friday, May 5th, 2017. We’re about six months out now for the show and they’ve given a mini-synopsis of what to expect there as well:

Picking up where season one left off, Capheus (Toby Onwumere), Kala (Tina Desai), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Riley (Tuppence Middleton), Sun (Doona Bae), Will (Brian J. Wright) and Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs. On the run from Whispers (Terrence Mann), and forced to question their very identity, it’s a matter of survival as the Sensates must find a way to live with, understand and protect one another against all odds.

So both of these synopsis were really just teasers that didn’t actually tell us much of what to expect. For fans of the show though you’ll be happy to see some familiar faces in these photos below:
