More good news for Netflix subscribers: Andy and Lana Wachowski, creators of "The Matrix" trilogy and "Cloud Atlas," have signed on with the video streaming service to create a 10-episode sci-fi season called "Sense8."

According to Deadline, the Wachowskis will join efforts with "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski to create characteristically Wachowski-like "gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted."

"Several years ago, we had a late-night conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us," said the Wachowskis. "And out of that paradox 'Sense8' was born.”

The show will be released in late 2014.
