Watch the Trailer for Sense 8, Netflix’s New Dramatic Thriller

Were you longing for an explosive thriller to keep you busy for an entire weekend? We have the perfect suggestion. Netflix just released the trailer for its upcoming original series Sense 8, and it looks riveting. It’s safe to say that, when it comes to original programming, Netflix is absolutely killing it this year.

What’s Sense 8? “A gripping story of eight people from around the world whose lives are suddenly and inexplicably connected in a fight for their own survival.” In other words, eight strangers from different cultures will find themselves mentally and emotionally connected, an evolutionary leap of technological origin. Meanwhile, a mysterious and powerful man will try to bring them together, while another one will do his best to hunt them down. Interesting concept, to say the least.

The series was written and executive-produced by The Matrix trilogy creators Andy and Lana Wachowski and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. The new series stars Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews and Terrence Mann, amongt others. And the trailer, released Thursday… well, it’s awesome. See for yourself.

All 12 episodes of Sense 8 will drop Friday, June 5. We’re already giddy with excitement, as the shows look great so far. Plus, seeing Naveen Andrews on the small screen is always a treat. It makes us remember how much we’re still missing Lost
