This was unexpected and quite heartbreaking. But yes, Sense8 has been canceled by Netflix. There will be no Season 3. We will never know if Wolfgang is rescued, if Whispers and BMO are defeated, or if Aminita and Nomi marry.
What the hell, Netflix!?
A queer show with queer characters made by queer women. It has people of color all over the place, drama, crime, sex, comedy, and it’s canceled.
Cindy Holland, vice president of the streaming video service’s original content, in a statement:
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. 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.
Thanks, Cindy, but we weren’t done yet.
