Netflix Responds to 'Sense8' Renewal Campaign
Netflix acknowledged it is aware of the fan support for Sense8, but emphasizes the love is not enough to revive the sci-fi series it canceled after two seasons.
The streaming service also recently canceled 'The Get Down.'
"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 TV show wrote in a Facebook post this week that was later shared by the Netflix account. "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 with your cluster around the world. #SensatesForever."
Created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, and Joseph Michael Straczynski, the series follows strangers around the world who become inexplicably linked. It starred Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Freema Agyeman, Terrence Mann, Anupam Kher, Naveen Andrews and Daryl Hannah.
