Watch Lana Wachowski’s touching thank you to Sense8 fans
After word came that Netflix was cancelling the hit series Sense8 after two seasons, fans began intense campaigning which resulted in the streaming giant greenlighting a 2-hour series finale. Now Sense8 co-creator/producer/director Lana Wachowski (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas) has made a heartfelt video as a special thank you to all the fans for helping to revive the show.
Wachowski previously took 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 wrote. “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.
