Sense8 Season 3 Won't Happen!

Posted 2017/06/03 3030 0

Today the video streaming service Netflix has announced that it has cancelled its scifi show, “Sense8,” after two seasons.

 

The streaming service on Thursday confirmed that it would not be moving forward with the sci-fi drama from Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski. "After 23 episodes, 16 cities and 13 countries, the story of the Sense8 cluster is coming to an end," Cindy Holland, Netflix's vp original content, said in a statement.

"It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kickass and outright unforgettable," she continued. "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 [Hill] for their vision and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment."

Sense8” starred Tuppence Middleton, Brian J. Smith, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen, Max Riemelt, Tina Desai, Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Jamie Clayton as eight strangers who become mentally and emotionally linked. Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski, and J. Michael Straczynski created the show for Netflix and executive produced with Grant Hill. The heady drama debuted in 2015 and followed a group of strangers from all over the world who suddenly realized they were able to sense each other and communicate using their minds. The series had gained a rightful reputation as one of the more “bold” and “unforgettable” premium shows on television due in part to its highly “diverse and international” cast and its willingness to represent progressive ideals and sexual lifestyles rarely seen on screens both large and small.

Netflix historically has canceled very few shows. But if CEO Reed Hastings gets his way, expect more in the future. "We've canceled very few shows," Hastings said at the Code Conference this week. "I'm always pushing the content team. We have to take more risk. You have to try more crazy things. Because we should have a higher cancel rate overall."
