'Sense8' Trailer Previews Netflix's Most Mysterious Show Yet

Not much is known about "Sense8," Netflix's new series from The Wachowskis ("The Matrix," "Cloud Atlas"), J. Michael Straczynski and Grant Hill. But with a new trailer and photos, we can begin to piece together what may unfold in the 12 episodes available on June 5.

Per Netflix, "'Sense8' is a gripping story of eight people from around the world whose lives are suddenly and inexplicably connected in a fight for their own survival." That doesn't reveal much, but in an interview with Buzzfeed News, Straczynski described "Sense8" like this: “It’s a global story told on a planetary scale about human transcendence and what it ultimately means to be human in a contemporary society.”

The show will follow eight strangers -- Will (Brian J. Smith), Riley (Tuppence Middleton), Capheus (Aml Ameen), Sun (Bae Doona), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Kala (Tina Desai), Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) and Nomi (Jamie Clayton) -- living in different parts of the world as they find out that they're connected by the death of a sensate, defined as eight people connected by their personalities.
