If it wasn’t for the persistence of fans, a wrap-up movie never would’ve been greenlit by Netflix. Lana Wachowski, the Sense8 cast and crew certainly know that. They express their gratitude to the drama’s extremely loyal fanbase in a touching video, fittingly uploaded on August 8, the sensates’ collective birthday.
“I think it requires a moment to just take a breath, to appreciate it, to look around and admire the holy s—tness of it all, because what you fans did was quite frankly unbelievable,” Wachowski says. “It happened, you did it, it’s real.”
For any fan who signed the various petitions to resurrect the show, the 15-minute clip is must-see material. You can’t help but get goosebumps as fans and the cast sing along to “What’s Up” from 4 Non Blondes. Check it out below.
Sense8 returns for a two-hour finale special on Netflix sometime in 2018.
