Sense8: New Netflix Series Announced From Wachowski Siblings

The Cloud Atlas directors Andy and Lana Wachowski have announced their next move in the world of entertainment. The sibling directors will be teaming up with the online streaming service Netflix, the BBC reports, to create a series entitled Sense8. Talking about how they arrived at the idea for the show, the directors revealed in a statement “Several years ago, we had a late night conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us. Out of that paradox Sense8 was born.”

The show will make its debut in late 2014 and is described as “a gripping tale of minds linked and souls hunted.” Let’s hope it fares better than their ambitious adaptation of Cloud Atlas which looked brilliant on paper, but ended up bamboozling both critics and audiences alike. The Wachowskis are also responsible for creating The Matrix, and have also directed movies such as V For Vendetta and Speed Racer. Netflix previously announced their intention to make a minimum of five original shows every year, giving viewers good reason to subscribe to their service, over any other (assuming the shows are any good, of course). They started of with a remake of House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey, which has been hugely popular and is soon to embark on a second series.

This spring, Netflix will be streaming the horror series Hemlock Grove as well as the highly anticipated comeback of Arrested Development.
