Netflix announced today that the drama series from transgender siblings Lilly and Lana Wachowski (Matrix) will not continue.
Sense8 is about eight complete strangers who are scattered across the globe – America, Korea, England, Kenya, Germany, India, and Mexico – but find themselves mentally, emotionally, and spiritually connected.
‘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 the streaming video service’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.’
Sense8 was created in 2015 by the Wachowskis with J. Michael Straczynski.
The show’s complex and gripping storyline has amassed a huge fan base.
But for Season 2 of Sense8, Lana Wachowski went solo – a first in her 20-year professional career shared with her sister.
Lilly, who just came out as transgender in March 2016, took a back seat for the time being to focus on her well-being.
