The series "Sense8" was perhaps one of Netflix's most ambitious creations, and ultimately that is what lead to its premature demise. After just two seasons, it joins a small club of canceled Netflix series.

While the fanbase of the show was certainly not as large as that of "Orange is the New Black", it was a dedicated enough fanbase to send letters and petitions fighting for the show. Yesterday, it was announced that, because of this, the show is being revived... but only for a two-hour finale episode.

Many fans were thrilled at the news of a proper finale.

With the ending of season 2 leaving the audience at the edge of their seats, it was nice to know that the there would be some closure for the characters.

Other fans are not giving up the fight just yet.

The compromise of a two-hour series finale, which would be the length of just two regular episodes, is just not enough for some Fans who will not settle for less than a full season.

Regardless, this is a huge move for Netflix.

This news comes only a month after the cancellation announcement.

The company has never revived its own show before.

Even the co-creator of the series, Lana Wachowski, couldn't believe Netflix agreed to bring back the show for a two-hour long special. In a letter to the fans thanking them for their work in bringing back the show Wachowski says, "Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought 'Sense8' back to life!"

The emotional letter shared on the "Sense8" Twitter account ends with a hopeful statement for fans who want more than two hours.

"There will be another two-hour special released next year. After that... if this experience has taught me anything, you NEVER know."

The show is so important to fans because of the diversity and powerful representation that we don't normally get to see on television.

Characters include Capheus, a bus driver in Nairobi whose mother suffers from AIDS, Nomi Marks, a hacktivist who happens to be a trans woman with a girlfriend, and Lito Rodriguez, a Mexican actor coming out of the closet. The eight sensates live in various cities across the world but find themselves connected to each other mentally and emotionally. Despite their incredible differences, they discover they have a great deal in common with one another.

On top of having a heavy, science fiction plot that is intellectually stimulating, "Sense8" is a show in which characters are multidimensional, positive representations that fans want more of.
