Despite fans having organised a commendable campaign to try and reverse the decision to cancel the Netflix original series “Sense8,” the streaming service has announced that show definitely won’t be returning.
Created by the Wachowski siblings (“The Matrix”) and J. Michael Straczynski (“Babylon 5”), the series followed a diverse cast of multi-ethnic characters who find themselves endowed with the special abilities of a sensate – namely someone who is mentally and emotionally linked to seven other human beings possessed of the same power.
Netflix cancelled program earlier this month. Fans of the series were quick to mount a series of petitions to stop it, but in a posting to the official Tumblr page for series, Netflix offered an open letter of condolence:
“To our Sense8 family… We’ve seen the petitions. We’ve read the messages. We know you want to #RenewSense8, and we wish we could #BringBackSense8 for you. The reason we’ve taken so long to get back to you is because we’ve thought long and hard here at Netflix to try to make it work but unfortunately we can’t. Thank you for watching and hope you’ll stay close to your cluster around the world. #SensatesForever”
What we’re left with are two seasons and one Christmas special which will remain on the streaming service for some time to come.
