A fan Petition launched on Charge.Org is hoping Netflix, or another network or platform, will listen and bring "Sense8" back for season 3. Netflix canceled the show on June 1, despite earlier negotiations with the cast that the series will have a third season.

The "Sense8" petition has so far received 446,887 supporters and it's a few numbers shy of its goal to get 500,000 signatures. The petition was initiated by fans from Argentina who said, "We believe that as a visual product, "Sense 8" does have all these values we recognize and has perfectly managed to transmit it to the viewers."

Global following rallies for renewal

"Sense8" had an immense global following because of its stories and characters.

The show featured eight strangers who live around the world -- in America, Mexico, England, Germany, Kenya, Korea and India -- yet these strangers are spiritually and mentally connected. The casting ensemble included Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Aml Ameen, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Max Riemelt and Brian J. Smith.

Fans of the highly diversified series have been rallying and relentlessly calling up Netflix. They are asking its executives to reconsider the cancellation. In fact, they have been heavily campaigning on Twitter to send the streaming platform messages, especially since the second season ended with a cliffhanger.

Why did Netflix cancel 'Sense8'?

Netflix did not divulge the full details in announcing its decision not to renew the series.

Instead, the company posted a message from Cindy Holland, the vice president for Netflix's original content, on its official site. She commended the series for being "a more truly global show with an equally diverse and international cast and crew."

Observers noted, however, that this could be why Netflix has bailed on the series as the production was too expensive to produce. Reports say the show developed by the Wachowski sisters cost $9 million per episode. Because of this, it's also unclear if another network or platform would be interested in the series.

"Sense8" also took a long time to return for season 2 and some viewers could have already forgotten about the first season. The series first premiered in 2015 and took nearly two years for the follow-up to air on the platform.

Netflix doesn't reveal its actual numbers or ratings for all of its shows, thus it was harder to determine if "Sense8" ranked well. But given the passion from fans to bring back the show, it can be said that the series has substantial followers.
