Amazon E-Mail Party!

You can now send your personal e-mail to Amazon! Explain why Sense8 is so important and why they would benefit from having it in their library.

Let’s spread the word sensates!

Is Sense8 dead for good?

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!

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’.

“Sense8” Officially Cancelled by Netflix

Sense8 is a “Netflix Original Series” that premiered in June 2015, and followed by a second season in 2017. It quickly became one of the most beloved show on the platform. Yesterday, Netflix officially announced that the show would not be renewed.

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.

Yesterday, we created a petition on Change.org to show Netflix that the show has a lot of loyal fans. In a few hours, it got the support of over 200,000 people and was relayed by the media all over the world.

If you haven’t signed the petition yet, please do so! And feel free to share it with your friends so it gets all the support it deserves :
