The end date for Netflix’s sci-fi series Sense8 has been announced. The Internet network revealed today that the series created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski will wrap June 8.
Netflix ordered a two-hour conclusion to the sci-fi series last year after the show’s cancellation spurred fans to petition for more.
In its release, Netflix described the series-ender as follows:
“Personal lives are pushed aside as the cluster, their sidekicks, and some unexpected allies band together for a rescue mission and BPO take-down in order to protect the future of all Sensates.
The highly-anticipated conclusion to the saga of the Sense8 cluster will be revealed when the series finale launches globally on June 8, only on Netflix.”
Netflix also tweeted the anticipated news along with the key art that includes the tagline “Together Until The End.”

The sci-fi series from J. Michael Straczynski and the Wachowskis was canceled on June 1 amid reports that it cost about $9 million an episode to produce. But fan letter-writing and petition campaigns prodded Netflix to greenlit a two-hour finale for the show.
“Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought ‘Sense8’ back to life,” Wachowski wrote. “The passionate letters, the petitions, the collective voice that rose up like the fist of Sun to fight for this show was beyond what anyone was expecting. … While it is often true that these decisions are irreversible, it is not always true.”
