Netflix Has Heard You And Is Bringing Back Sense8 For A Two-Hour Finale
"Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought Sense8 back to life."
Guys, you did it. Despite insisting that it would never happen, Netflix has finally relented in the face of immense fan pressure and announced that Sense8 is coming back for a two-hour finale.
Series co-creator Lana Wachowski confirmed the news via a letter to fans in which she thanked them for refusing to take no for an answer. “I wish I could cluster with you to share some of the beautiful moments, the hugs, tears and laughter, as well as the insightful and humbling conversations I have had with the people who have connected to this show,” she wrote. “They are unlike any fans I have encountered as an artist.”
“The passionate letters, the petitions, the collective voice that rose up like the fist of Sun to fight for this show was beyond what anyone expected,” Wachowski continued. “Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought Sense 8 back to life. (I could kiss every single one of you!)”
The bold, ambitious, unapologetically queer sci-fi series was cancelled by Netflix earlier this month, despite the second season ending on the mother of all cliff-hangers.
A number of actors from the show also shared the news and yeah, they’re pretty stoked about it too.

According to Wachowski, the movie-length finale will air in 2018. She also suggested that the series could continue beyond that, writing “if this experience has taught me anything, you NEVER know.”
“Thank you all. Now let’s go find out what happens to Wolfgang.”
