Cast and new plot details revealed for The Wachowskis' Netflix series Sense8

06.23.2014

The Wachowski siblings' JUPITER ASCENDING has been pushed back until next year, but it looks like things are going well for Sense8, their upcoming sci-fi drama for Netflix. The main cast for the 10-episode series has been announced, as well as some new information on the mysterious project.

Sense8 will have a giant 14-member international cast, and Deadline is reporting the following actors have joined the series: Naveen Andrews (Lost, PLANET TERROR), Darryl Hannah (BLADE RUNNER, KILL BILL), Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe), Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, The Carrie Diaries), Doona Bae (CLOUD ATLAS, Bong Joon-ho's THE HOST), Tuppence Middleton (JUPITER ASCENDING, Black Mirror), Aml Ameen (THE MAZE RUNNER, THE BUTLER), German actor Max Riemelt (THE WAVE, FREE FALL), Tena Desae (THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL), Terrence Mann (RED HOOK, CRITTERS), Jamie Clayton (Hung, Transform Me), Miguel Silvestri and Mexican actor Alfonso Herrera.

The Wachowski siblings created Sense8 with writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski (THOR, WORLD WAR Z, Babylon 5) and he shared a new detailed synopsis for the series with Deadline.

The series follows eight characters around the world who, in the aftermath of a tragic death, find themselves linked to each other mentally and emotionally. They can not only see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, they have access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must they figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, they must do so while being by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.

Deadline is also hearing Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Aml Ameen, Doona Bae, Miguel Silvestri, Tena Desae, Max Riemelt and Jamie Clayton will play the eight linked characters in Sense8, and will take place in nine different locations: Chicago, San Francisco, London, Iceland, Soul, Mumbai, Berlin, Mexico City and Nairobi. Sense8 sounds like it's a very ambitious project, and I hope the Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski haven't bitten off more than they can chew with their new series.

Filming for Sense8 is set to start soon, and will be available on Netflix in either late-2014 or early-2015. The Wachowskis' JUPITER ASCENDING will be in theaters on February 6, 2015.

These siblings made one good movie. Their other were horrible.

The Matrix (first one) was a stunning movie. The way it was shot, the revolution it started with its filming style and the impossible stunt it pulled off by taking a plot that is way over the heads of an average audience member and turning it into a box office smash and pop culture phenomenon.

But since then, the sequels got worse and worse, their next movies all bombed and sucked and they are just a one hit wonder.

Sounds intriguing. Bae Doona is really cool, and despite their spotty track records I really love the Wachowskis.

They take risks and as cliche as it sounds, they dream big. I think that should be rewarded.

Larry is a hot looking dude. I wonder if his penis has been mutilated to resemble a female's vagina yet.

Fortunately for the rest of the world, it isn't your line to draw. And you're mistaken if you conflate homosexuality and being trans--saying "I'm all for gay rights" is about as related as saying "I support the Civil Rights Act of 1964." That's fantastic, but you're still a bigot.

You appear to have a dim understanding of "science." You're right about one thing, it has nothing to do with "chopping something off." She's a woman regardless of what's between her legs, friend! I'm sorry you're confused.

Anatomically he is a male. He is a male dressing as a woman. He is a male wearing makeup. He is a male who is taking hormone supplements to further help him look like a woman. He is a male with a psychological disorder wherein he "feels" like a female. As much as he may FEEL like a woman on the inside, no matter how much cosmetic surgery he has, he is anatomically, biologically, genetically still a male. Deal with it.
