Netflix has released a statement on the official Sense8 Tumblr today stating that they have apparently made their mind up regarding the cancellation. After two seasons and an Holiday special, is the show definitely over?
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!
