When Netflix announced that one of their original shows, “Sense8,” was being canceled, fans could not deal with the news. Not only was “Sense8” one of the most diverse shows to ever be on Netflix, but the show was being canceled right after a huge cliffhanger from Season 2. Because of this, fans decided to take matters into their own hands, and this is what happened:
Earlier this month, Netflix revealed the bad news that “Sense8” was going to be canceled. And this is how fans reacted:

To make matters worse, the last episode was a major cliffhanger.
Thousands of fans signed a petition, and some mailed their chanclas to the Netflix offices in hopes that they would bring the show back.

These fans were not just going to sit back and let this happen. Some even went as far as canceling their Netflix subscriptions as part of the protest.
A month after the petition started, people were starting to lose hope…
But then, “Sense8” posted this letter:

And just six minutes after “Sense8” had published their letter, Netflix then posted this video on their Twitter:

So. Many. Emotions.
Even though Netflix is not promising an entire third season, at least “Sense8” fans will get to have some sort of closure now, and that’s what they’re most happy about.

The actors from “Sense8” also couldn’t be happier and grateful for having such a huge support system.
Gracias @sense8 fans!

Anything is possible. And this “Sense8” comeback proves it. 💖
To the Sense8 fandom: you give me courage and hope. Thank you for showing anything is possible if you're dedicated enough.#sense8isback
