Posted on

Sense8, the Netflix original series that premiered in June 2015 and released its second season in May 2017, has officially been canceled.


“After 23 episodes, 16 cities and 13 countries, the story of the Sense8 cluster is coming to an end," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said in a statement. "It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kick ass, and outright unforgettable. 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 [Wachowski], Lilly [Wachowski], Joe [Michael Straczynski] and Grant [Hill] for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment."

And fans aren't happy about it.

SENSE8 HAD: • diversity • lgbtq representation • cinematography • good plot • amazing acting AND YALL CANCELLED IT??????

Especially because the announcement came on the first day of June, which is Pride Month.

Seems like a real slap in the face for @Netflix to cancel #Sense8 on the first day of Pride Month.

The second season of Sense8 ended on a huge cliffhanger, and fans are already trying to find ways to get some sort of closure with #RenewSense8.

Hey @netflix can we get a proper finale movie or something to close @sense8 off??? Don't do the fans dirty like thi…

The show's official Twitter account sent out a heartbreaking farewell video.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Sensates forever.

The second season of Sense8 premiered in May 2017. The original article only stated the date of the Christmas special release, which was December 2016.
