As Netflix continues to increase the output of their original content, their finest drama remains the Wachowskis‘ ambitious Sense8. In terms of formal accomplishment and emotional connection, the first season was a joy to watch — and now, before a follow-up season, they are returning with a two-hour Christmas special.

Ahead of a release in just a week, Netflix has released the first trailer. If you thought this sort of special might not be a fit for a series like this, the Wachowskis are here to prove otherwise as it looks to mix some good-hearted connection with their brand of action. Featuring Toby Onwumere, Tina Desai, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Jamie Clayton, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, Brian J. Smith, and Max Riemelt, check out the trailer below, backed by a “Hallelujah” cover,  along with a message from Lana Wachowski, thanks to Indiewire.

Sense8: A Christmas Special arrives on December 23 and season 2 will arrive on May 5, 2017.
