Netflix may have cancelled 'Sense8', but it's now bringing the series back for a two-hour special next year.
Lana Wachowski, one of the show's co-creators, posted a letter to its fans on its Facebook page explaining that the special had been commissioned because of the fan response.
"Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought 'Sense8' back to life," Wachowski wrote. "(I could kiss every single one of you!)"
The show's cancellation was thought to be due to high production costs. Its diverse cast of characters required filming all over the world, leading some to estimate each episode cost $9 million to make.
Netflix said it didn't come by the decision to cancel lightly. "We've thought long and hard here at Netflix to try to make it work but unfortunately we can't," the firm said in a statement.
In the letter to fans, Lana also admitted to falling into a depression since the show had been cancelled. "I had never worked so hard, or put so much of myself into a project as I had wth 'Sense8' and its cancellation hollowed me out," Wachowski wrote.
