Netflix Cancels 'Sense8' After Two Seasons

Netflix has cancelled its original drama series Sense8 after two seasons, it was announced today. The news comes just a month after the second season was released on the streaming service.

"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, Lilly, Joe and Grant for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content, Netflix.

The drama starred Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Brian J. Smith, Freema Agyeman, Terrence Mann, Anupam Kher, Naveen Andrews and Daryl Hannah.

The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski created the drama. They executive produced with Grant Hill, John Toll, Leon Clarance, Marc Rosen, Cindy Holland, Peter Friedlander and Tara Duncan. Studio JMS, Georgeville Television, Venus Castina LLC, Elizabeth Bay Productions and Unpronounceable Productions produced.

The news today marks the second high-profile cancellation at Netflix in as many weeks. Last week it was announced that the streamer was ending The Get Down after only one season.
