The Sense8 Christmas special certainly helped tide us over for Season 2, but no one’s decking any halls in the newest trailer. See for yourself, as the Sense8 world gets even bigger, and Whispers strikes back in a full Season 2 trailer and poster.

Vulture debuted the cinematic new trailer, in which a little Rembrandt education provides a backdrop for the Sensates’ next big challenge. Not only do we get a look at who’s pulling Whispers’ strings, but it also seems a certain someone might finally be getting out of prison. Check out the poster below:

Set for a May 5 premiere, so reads the official Season 2 synopsis:

Picking up where season one left off, Capheus, Kala, Lito, Nomi, Riley, Sun, Will and Wolfgang come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs. On the run from Whispers, 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.

Elsewhere, we know that the next run will continue the departure of star Aml Ameen, as well as Wachowski sibling Lilly, leaving Lana in a solo directing position. Lilly sat out the season to “focus on her well-being” after coming out as transgender, and may return for a potential third season.

We’ll learn more in the next few weeks, but check out the first photos below, and stay tuned for the latest on Sense8 Season 2.
