Exclusive new photos show the eight series leads continue to telepathically experience each other’s lives, crossing continents and defending each other from the sinister ‘Whispers’ (Terrence Mann).

The one difference from season one is that Sense8 character Capheus (below centre) has been recast, with Toby Onwumere taking the place of British actor Aml Ameen.

“Capheus, Kala, Lito, Nomi, Riley, Sun, Will and Wolfganag come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs,” the series description reads.

“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.”
