Netflix Releases Statement Defending The Cancellation Of Sense8

Netflix’s Sense8 second season premiered to strong reviews and positive reception from viewers still the streaming service shockingly announced its cancellation. A big-budget project such as this meant that Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s series, one created in tandem with J. Michael Straczynski, really needed to hit the big leagues in order to be considered a success and unfortunately, Sense8 never quite reached the dizzying heights, the result of which is a cancellation that many fans will no doubt consider to be premature.

A petition sprung up by fans urging Netflix to change their mind, and while it garnered a tremendous amount of support, the company stood by their decision, taking to the show’s official Tumblr page earlier this week to post the following message:
The statement reads “To our Sense8 family… We’ve seen the petitions. We’ve read the messages. We know you want to #RenewSense8, and we wish we could #BringBackSense8 for you. The reason we’ve taken so long to get back to you is because we’ve thought long and hard here at Netflix to try to make it work but unfortunately we can’t. Thank you for watching and hope you’ll stay close with your cluster around the world. #SensatesForever

Netflix head honcho Ted Sarandos also had this to say “We couldn’t support those economics. If you put all your money into something that a very few people are watching, eventually you’ll have nothing for people to watch. The audience for Sense8 was very passionate but just not large enough to support the economics of something that big, even in our platform.
