All over the world, Sense8 fans are celebrating after learning that their favorite tv show is coming back to life – for a proper ending this time. Lana Wachowski, one of the creators of the show, announced the series renewal with a heartfelt letter shared via Twitter and Facebook.

Cancelation heartbreak

At the start of June, Netflix announced that it would be canceling "Sense8." The decision came as a shock since the program was one of the network's most popular ones.

This explains the fact that after only two seasons, and a cliffhanger ending, fans were not ready to say goodbye.

After the announcement of the show's cancellation, fans took to social media to share their heartbreak and anger. Millions of viewers gathered to sign an online petition for the show's renewal. This petition had an end goal of one million signatures, and to this date, 522,967 fans have signed it.

This is not the end

It seems that "Sense8" fans have finally gotten what they wanted. After much acclaim from its passionate viewers, the series is making a comeback.

The announcement of the series renewal came via the show's official Twitter. Wachowski's heartwarming statement was captioned with the phrase "Death doesn't let you say goodbye." In the letter, Lana expressed how "heartbroken" she was when the show was canceled, and how hard it was to read the correspondence of fans that were sharing their grief with her. She even confessed to suffering from depression after the event.

"I had never worked so hard, or put so much of myself into a project as I had with Sense8, and its cancellation hollowed me out."

She went on to share that the show's crew and actors were just as disappointed and sad as her and the viewers. The letter expresses hope and positivity when she talks about the support received from all over the world, explaining that the passion and love shared for the show are what brought it back.

The statement even offered an explanation as to why the show was canceled in the first place. Lana said that, as much as Netflix loved the series, it was still an expensive project to make.

To end the letter, she thanked the outpouring of support and finally announced that "Sense8" would be coming back for a two-hour special that will premiere in 2018.

Additionally, she shared some hopeful words, saying that "After that... If this experience has taught me anything, you NEVER know." This sentence has left fans thinking that maybe, just maybe, there could be even more to come.

Let's hope for the best.
