Let’s spread the word sensates!
Netflix has released a statement regarding the state of Sense8. Apparently, they do read the 700+ e-mails that you sent! Here is a transcript of the original Netflix letter:
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 with your cluster around the world.
Brian J. Smith, who plays Chicago police officer Will Gorski in the show, has also released a statement on TwitLonger.
Guys, there are no secrets here. I’ve been given the same reason for the cancelation that you have: viewership.
Personally… I don’t know what to think anymore. Netflix is a for profit company, and like Brian said in his statement, it’s doubtful that there is an other reason to the cancellation besides the obvious “Money/Viewership” issues. Of course I know the Sense8 community is going to continue hoping, and I hope Netflix will provide us with one last special to conclude the Cluster’s story.
They deserve it, Netflix!
In the meantime, take the fight to Netflix. Continue checking our website regularly for updates, and join our Discord Server to be updated in real-time of actions happening, and of course to talk with the rest of the ‘global cluster’.
Because we know you need to cheer up:
While there will be several videos, they all have the same basic principle:
When you’re all done, send your video via a WeTransfer, Google Drive or Dropbox link to : email@example.com (Don’t send it as an attachement, it will not get through!)
Be careful tho: the deadline is on June 19th!
We’re happy to say that we already have the support of Chase Holfelder that agreed that we use his video in our tributes:
Let’s see your videos Sensates!
However, there are some other things we can do to catch Netflix’s attention. Thanks to several users on both Twitter and Tumblr, we managed to collect phone numbers from different countries to contact Netflix. If you want to make a difference and help, let’s start calling them, always talking with respect and patience, explaining what we are trying to do and how much we support the show.
Here are the different numbers and the countries:
Apart from calling, you can algo keep sharing the petition and keep spreading the words!
Thank you so much to sense8blog (tumblr) and @britneyarmyar for sharing the information!

After days of rumors, Netflix’s Cindy Holland has officially released a statement which said that the series will indeed not be renewed for a third season.
“After 23 episodes, 16 cities and 13 countries, the story of the Sense8 cluster is coming to an end. It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kick ass, and outright unforgettable. 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. We thank Lana, Lilly, Joe and Grant for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment.”
While Netflix hasn’t released any viewership figures, it is suspected that they fell bellow the their expectation. This, coupled with an high production cost ($9M/per episode) seems to be the likely explanation.
You all are putting up an incredible fight. We hear you and it’s so moving. But not enough people watched the show and it’s $$$ to produce. https://t.co/FXUvlQFzBc
