Lana Wachowski has confirmed the return of the show for a 2-hour special finale
After getting canceled by Netflix, shortly after the release of its second season, Sense8 is now getting a last-minute stay of execution in the form of a two-hour special. It will air in 2018, as by its creator Lana Wachowski on the show’s Facebook page:
The facebook post received hundreds of thousands of likes and reactions as well as shares
It is believed that, despite the overwhelming amount of viewers that the TV show had received, the production cost was amongst one of the highest in the world, estimated at $9 million dollars per episode, which may have contributed to the cancelation.
However, at this point, and paraphrasing Lana, it seems like nothing’s been said and there’s a big chance we might see more sense8 in the future.
