Netflix Cancels 'Sense8' After 2 Seasons


Netflix has declined to renew its sci-fi drama Sense8 for a third season.

"After 23 episodes, 16 cities and 13 countries, the story of the Sense8 cluster is coming to an end," Cindy Holland, vice president of Netflix original content, said in a statement Thursday.

"It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kickass, and outright unforgettable," Holland said. "Never has there been a more truly global show with an equally diverse and international cast and crew, which is only mirrored by the connected community of deeply passionate fans all around the world."
