When Is the Sense8 Series Finale Premiere?

Netflix Thanks Everyone For Their "P8tience," Finally Announces Sense8's Finale Date

Soon after it was announced Netflix unceremoniously canceled Sense8, the Wachowski siblings' sci-fi cult-hit that ran for two seasons, an outcry to bring it back dominated the internet. Since many of the drama's storylines were left unresolved, fans were naturally devastated. Fortunately the streaming network decided to do something about the backlash, gifting loyal audiences with the promise of a two-hour series finale to wrap things up. Now we finally have a premiere date!

Along with a ton of other exciting new titles hitting Netflix over the next few months, it was announced that Sense8's series premiere is June 8. That's just over a month away, people! Time to call your cluster.

In an interesting twist, the groundbreaking series — which explores sexuality and gender in a way few other TV shows have even attempted — was originally going to be rescued from cancellation by porn site Xhamster, whose vice president reached out to creators Lana and Lilly Wachowski about providing them the budget necessary to carry on Sense8.

"xHamster is currently one of the most trafficked websites on the internet. We have the eyeballs, and the revenue. Unlike Netflix, you wouldn't be competing for part of our production budget – it would be yours," VP Alex Hawkins wrote. "xHamster has a long history fighting for the rights of sexual speech, and non-normative sexuality . . . In addition to allowing billions of users to connect with individual articulations of gender and sexuality, we continue to use our audience to speak up against repressive anti-LGBTQ laws in the US and abroad, and for sex ed in public schools, Planned Parenthood and the right of sex workers."

Ultimately Netflix pulled through, which was clearly the right decision considering Sense8 has such an ardent fandom.
