Netflix greenlights 2-hour finale for Sense8 to premiere in 2018
Earlier this month, word came down that Netflix was cancelling the hit series Sense8 after two seasons on the streaming platform. Fans began to campaign for the series to return in one form or another, but things remained grim after Netflix revealed they wouldn’t be bringing it back despite fan campaigns.
Now, series co-creator Lana Wachowski has taken to the official Sense8 Twitter account to reveal the series will return for one last hurrah.
“Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought Sense8 back to life,” she writes. “It is my great pleasure as well as Netflix’s (believe me, they love the show as much as we do but the numbers have always been challenging) to announce that there will be another two hour special released next year. After that… if this experience has taught me anything, you NEVER know.’
“Thank you all. Now let’s go find out what happens to Wolfgang.”

From Lana Wachowski, Grant Hill and J. Michael Straczynski, Sense8 is centered around eight characters, from different parts of the world, who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves mentally connected by the experience. They become connected, able to see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, with access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must the eight adapt to this new ability and to each other, they must figure out why their lives are now in jeopardy. In Season 2, dark forces continue to track the cluster of eight connected characters. The sensates will learn more about BPO, the secret organization searching for their cluster and others like them, and will work to protect themselves from this organization that is out to hunt and kill them.
The series stars Toby Onwumere, Tina Desai, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Jamie Clayton, Tuppence Middleton, Donna Bae, Brian J. Wright, Max Riemel and Terrence Mann.
