The Sense8 Christmas Special Says 'Happy Fucking New Year'

There’s going to be snow and caroling and mind-meld shared consciouness next week when the Wachowskis’ Netflix series Sense8 comes back for a two-hour holiday special.

The teaser shows off cast members from the first season with all sorts of canoodling and then... punching! A companion video from Lana Wachowski explains that she loved Christmas specials as a kid as a place where her life and those of fictional characters seemingly intersected.

That kind of thinking makes sense coming from the co-creator of Sense8 and The Matrix, two entertainments where reality and fiction bleed into each other.

Oh-ho, yes. Sense8 is such a good show, and, I think, I need its special blend of humanist optimism, especially now. I’m normally hot and cold on the Wachowskis, but their sensibilities fit this show perfectly. I don’t know that a concept as convoluted and complicated as this one could work without their direction.
