Meet the players in the Wachowski’s Netflix series Sense8 with 8 new character trailers

With the show’s debut just a week away, Netflix has dropped a ton of new footage from the Wachowskis’ mysterious new sci-fi series Sense8.

The series, from Matrix masterminds the Wachowskis and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski, focuses on a group of eight people who realize they are connected to one another from across the planet through a mysterious force. They can speak to one another and even access the other seven’s skills and memories.

The studio has dropped eight new trailers, with each one focused on the different "sensates." It definitely goes a long way toward piecing the concept together, but unless they come at this with a deft hand, this could be a hard idea for viewers to wrap their heads around. It definitely looks cool — just complicated.

The massive cast includes Naveen Andrews, Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Tina Desai, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen, Max Riemelt, Daryl Hannah, Terrence Mann, Freema Agyeman, Alfonso Herrera, Erendira Ibarra, Adam Shapiro, Ness Bautista and Joe Pantoliano.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:

Sense8 is set to premiere its full, 12-episode season June 5 on Netflix.
