We Might Be Getting a Sense8 Christmas Special
Sense8 was a typical post-Matrix Wachowski work: epic in scale, amazing in its visual effects, but frustrating as a result of its narrative flaws. But there are still many devoted fans out there, and for those of you who can't wait for the next season, there might be a very special holiday gift coming your way.

Rumors are starting to surface that the Wachowskis and Netflix will return to the world of Sense8 (at least) one more time for a BBC-style Christmas special. Spoiler TV shared screenshots earlier today that previewed a "Christmas Special Coming Dec. 23," which we can only assume is referring to this year. 

The show was renewed for a second season earlier this year, but there was no word on when new episodes would actually air. Netflix hasn't announced either an airdate for the second season or the existence of a Christmas special, but there have been rumors about it for months, fueled by social media teases from cast members:

If this is true, it would be pretty late to reveal the first teaser. They're probably going for the surprise factor, and will make the official announcement at the last possible second - likely in the next week. And if this turns out to be true, then it's probably a safe bet that season two will come out sometime next year. And now that Netflix is allowing users to download select shows to watch offline, it might be the perfect contender for your next long plane ride.
