Sense8 fans will get some closure, after all. Netflix has ordered a two-hour finale episode.
A few weeks ago Netflix cancelled Sense8 and the fan outcry was immediate. Hashtags were started, campaigns mounted, and Netflix was bombarded with e-mails and calls. It's no surprise, since season 2 was left on such a major cliffhanger, that fans desperately wanted some kind of resolution.
At first it wasn't enough. Netflix told fans on their Facebook page that they tried to make it work but they just couldn't. All hope seemed lost.
Then, out of nowhere, the Sense8 Twitter account posted that a two hour special will be released next year...

The letter comes from Lana Wachowski, one of the creators of Sense8. It confirms the ratings weren't there for Sense8 in its first two seasons but that fans made enough of an outcry that Netflix will at least give the creative team a way to wrap up the story. How much it wraps up the story is still up in the air, since the series was originally planned to last for five seasons.
Hopefully Lana and the others give the series some sense of closure, since they barely got this special to happen. All we know for now is we'll find out what happens to Wolfgang. The letter seems to leave open the possibility that there could be more Sense8 after this special but the chance of that seems remote. No matter what happens, you did it Sense8 fans. This two hour special wouldn't be in the works without you. Top stuff.
