Sense 8: Canceled at Netflix After Two Seasons!

at .

Sense 8 will not be returning for a third season on Netflix. 

The sci-fi drama struggled with pacing issues during Season 1 but really hit its stride during Season 2. Unfortunately, fans will not get to see what becomes of the characters.

“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,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of Netflix’s original content, in a statement.

“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, Lily, Joe and Grant for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment.”

Sense 8 debuted in June 2015, with a sophomore renewal coming later that year. Season 2, however, did not debut until May 2017. 

Because of that long wait, the streaming giant gifted fans with a Christmas special, which debuted in December 2016. 

Cast member, Brian J. Smith took to Twitter to thank fans for their support over the last few days.

"Sorry guys. Thanks for your passion and support these last few days, was very moving to see your love for the show. En Evant!"

Sense 8 followed a group of eight people who were brought together after having visions of a gruesome murder. It's just a shame the series never got the chance to close off the storylines. 

Netflix recently canceled The Get Down and Bloodline, and the most recent cancellation comes on the heels of the CEO saying they would need to cancel more shows in the future. 

Initially, the streaming giant had set itself apart from broadcast networks, and virtually every series landed a second season renewal. 

It's unclear how these series are being canceled, but one would think it would be to do with how many subscribers are watching them. 

Netflix does not hand out ratings, so it's difficult to assess what is going on.
