Netflix’s recently-cancelled series Sense8 is coming back next year for a two-hour final episode.

Netflix and show co-creator Lana Wachowski confirmed that the hugely negative reaction from fans regarding the cancellation has inspired the show’s return.

Netflix had announced earlier this month that Sense8 was not going to be renewed for a third season, despite the second season ending on a cliffhanger.

The streaming giant said the show did not attract a large enough audience to justify the $9 million per episode cost of filming, but following the outpour of emotion, decided “to give Sense8 fans the ending they totally deserve.”
