Sense8: Other Projects Starring The Netflix Show's Cast

Created by the Wachowskis, Sense8 is a Netflix sci-fi series with a stellar cast. What else have these actors starred in?

Sense8 was a Netflix show that focused on eight strangers who were from different parts of the world and who become sensates, making them linked in a unique way. The first season dropped on June 5, 2015, then there was a two-hour Christmas special in December 2016, and the second season came out in May 2017. After this, the series was canceled, but thankfully, Netflix gave fans a two-and-a-half-hour series finale in June 2018.
