It’s back! Netflix’s sci-fi show “Sense8,” which had been cancelled just weeks ago, is coming back for a two hour finale special. After the outpouring of fan-fueled anger at the show’s cancellation, co-creator Lana Wachowski posted a letter to Facebook. Wachowski said of the cancellation:
The outpouring of love and grief that came in the wake of the news that Sense would not be continuing was so intense that I often found myself unable to open my own email. I confess I fell into a fairly serious depression.
But all was not lost, as Wachowski discovered. The show’s loyal fans quickly started a campaign to renew the show. Soon, the tides began to turn. Wachowski continued:
But just as the characters in our show discover that they are not alone, I too have learned that I am not just a me. I am also a we. 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 was expecting. In this world it is easy to believe that you cannot make a difference…that love is always less important than the bottom line. But here is a gift from the fans of this show that I will carry forever in my heart; while it is often true those decisions are irreversible, it is not always true.
Wachowski then announced a two hour special set to solve the huge cliffhanger fans were left with at the end of season 2. No details yet on when this will happen, but Wackowski has said the special will drop sometime next year.
