An unlikely source has offered to produce a new season of Sense8
If Sense8 gets cancelled by Netflix again, an unlikely source is offering the Wachowski sisters a back-up plan.
The acclaimed Netflex series, created by transgender sisters Lana and Lilly Wachowski, follows eight pansexual individuals around the globe with an apparent psychic connection.
Fans were left devastated when Netflix confirmed that the show had been cancelled after two seasons earlier this year, despite winning praise for its brilliant inclusion of LGBT characters and themes.
After protests from the show’s fans, Netflix reversed the decision and renewed the show for one further two-hour special – but Lana Wachoswki is already hoping for a third season.
But if Netflix decides to axe the show again, all may not be lost.
Adult entertainment site xHamster today wrote an open letter to the famous directors, offering them the chance to continue the series on their platform.
xHamster exec Alex Hawkins wrote: “We recently read that you’re working on a third season of Sense8 despite the fact that Netflix has no plans to renew the series.
“We know it’s unconventional, but we want to bring it back — on xHamster. We’re not talking about a parody, or something less than, but an actual revival of the series.
“Ever since we read about the cancellation, we’ve been wondering if there was something we could do. While we’re happy that Netflix is picking up the series for a conclusion, before you wrap up the story, we wanted you to consider another option — letting xHamster produce the series.”
He claimed the site has ” a long history of fighting for the rights of sexual speech, and non-normative sexuality”, adding: “We have no such limitations, and also understand implicitly the interconnectedness of sexualities across boundaries. In short, we are a we.”
