Sense8 Among the Cancelled Netflix Shows Just After Two Seasons
Those who are familiar with the show Sense8 know what an incredibly unique narrative the show has, with so many different perspectives and plot twists – there’s a lot to become enthralled in. Unfortunately, a recent announcement from the head of Netflix came bearing news that many shows were getting the axe and Sense8 was no exception.
The VP for Netflix original content had this to say in a recent interview:
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.”
The show itself was hailed for its innovation and unique plot. 8 characters were interconnected by a “violent vision” around the world and shared memories and perceptions despite their differences and locations.

Sense8 isn’t the only show to get the axe. The Get Down, Bloodline, and Marco Polo are also seeing their end. This is all in an effort to demonstrate that the team is unafraid to take on risky projects, according to the Netflix Founder, Reed Hastings.
