netflix releases trailer for 'sense8' series finale

Netflix on Thursday released its first trailer for its upcoming Sense8 two-hour series finale.

Last June, Netflix announced that it was canceling the sci-fi show after two seasons. Response from fans for a third season was overwhelming. Instead, Netflix announced a final installment to end the series.

"Personal lives are pushed aside as the cluster, their sidekicks, and some unexpected allies band together for a rescue mission and BPO take-down in order to protect the future of all Sensates," Netflix said of the series finale.

Transgender sisters Lana and Lilly Wachowski created the show with J. Michael Straczynski.

In the show, eight characters cope with a new-found ability to communicate with each other in a dimension that transcends reality. One of those characters is gay, Lito Rodriguez (played by Miguel Angel Silvestre), and another is transgender, Nomi Marks (played by transgender actress Jamie Clayton).

The show has been praised for giving its LGBT characters complete lives, including romantic relationships. Nomi is in love with her girlfriend Amanita (Freema Agyeman), while Lito is in a relationship with Hernando (Alfonso Herrera).

Netflix will release the show's two-hour series finale on June 8.
