In a letter posted to Twitter, creator Lana Wachowski explained: “The outpouring of love and grief that came in the wake of the news that Sense8 would not be continuing was so intense that I often found myself unable to open my own email. I fell into a fairly serious depression.”
She continued to say that she had never worked “so hard” on a project, and that the show’s cancellation “hollowed me out”.
“Relative to what you spent, are people watching it? That is pretty traditional. When I say that, a big expensive show for a huge audience is great. A big, expensive show for a tiny audience is hard even in our model to make that work very long.”
