Netflix posted a video to thank Sensates for following "Sense8" for two seasons. But two is all you will get, unresolved storylines be damned.
Netflix has officially canceled the sci-fi drama from Lana and Lily Wachowski. Vice President of Original Content Cindy Holland offered this statement (via TVLine):
"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."
The streaming service paid tribute to the series and its fans on Twitter:
The journey of a lifetime — and then some. Thank you, Sensates. https://t.co/rYSrcE5Dok— Netflix US (@netflix) June 1, 2017

Fans are always upset when their favorite shows are canceled, but many "Sense8" fans were expecting at least one more season to wrap up storylines, since the Season 2 finale didn't feel like The End. But apparently the episodes that arrived May 5 really were The End.

Usually Netflix is the one to pick up a show that a TV network canceled, but you never know. This might mark an opportunity for someone else.
