'Sense8' season 2 air date, spoilers: Leak reveals new character called 'The Assistant'


The cast and crew of “Sense8” have already wrapped up production and the second season of the science fiction series is well under way despite all those silly rumors saying the show is going to get canceled. The people who came up with those rumors probably didn’t check all the photos shared by the cast while they were filming. Anyway, what can viewers expect to see in the upcoming season?

Right now, most of the alleged plot details regarding “Sense8” season 2 come from one source a Redditor going by the handle gukeums1. Months ago, the Redditor living near the set in Chicago discovered 11 pages of the script and he promptly shared his discovery. According to the leak, a new character called “The Assistant” is going to appear in the upcoming season.

Several sources believe that this character works for Mr. Whispers (Terrence Mann) and a commenter on gukeums1’s thread also came up with that theory. The leak also revealed that Michael Gorski (Joe Pantoliano), Will’s (Brian J. Smith) father dies. No explanation was given as to why he was dying; Michael just shuddered violently before he died.

Of course, gukeums1 might just be trolling, so readers are advised to take everything with a grain of salt. However, he insisted that the script is legitimate and that he lived near the “Sara Patrell’s [Margot Thorne] house” set. According to the Redditor, he found the script one morning while he was walking his dog.

Meanwhile, reports have been saying that “Sense8” season 2 will premiere on Christmas. Jamie Clayton, the actress portraying political blogger/hacktivist Nomi Marks, did say that the show was going to premiere on Christmas while the rest of the episodes would air in 2017. However, it should be noted that her post was actually made on April 29, so a lot could have changed between then and now.
