Sense8 - Cancelled by Netflix



Thanks to ruxi23 for the heads up.











The Netflix sci-fi series Sense8 is ending after two seasons, the streaming service confirms today in a statement first released to TV Show Patrol.

“After 23 episodes, 16 cities and 13 countries, the story of the Sense8 cluster is coming to an end,” Cindy Holland, VP Netflix original content, said in the statement. “It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kick ass, and outright unforgettable.

Holland goes on to express the importance of the series. “Never has there been a more truly global show with an equally diverse and international cast and crew, which is only mirrored by the connected community of deeply passionate fans all around the world. We thank Lana, Lilly, Joe and Grant for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment.”

The bad news comes as fans worldwide show their support for the show on social media with the hashtag #RenewSense8. A May 30 tweet from series star Brian J. Smith started a wave of speculation about the show’s future.

“This might be a good time to start making some noise,” Smith tweeted.

Fans expressed their love of the show’s originality, inclusiveness and international settings—not to mention compelling characters, exciting action and positive LGBTQ messages.

The streaming service rarely offers explanations for its decisions, or releases its viewership numbers.
