'Sense8' finale special gets premiere date and first poster

Together until the end.

2018-04-25

Sense8's finale chapter is almost here.

After 24 episodes of drama, intrigue and more telepathic intercontinental orgies than you can shake a stick at, the sci-fi series from Lana and Lilly Wachowski will come for a close with a one-off feature length finale this June.

The Sense8 finale will premiere on Netflix on June 8, 12 months after the series was axed after two season, prompting uproar from both fans and stars of the show alike.

Netflix unveiled a new poster for the finale special on Tuesday (April 24), featuring the eight sensates stood on a rooftop underneath the slogan 'Together until the end'.

We're getting emotional already.

The globe-trotting drama won plaudits on its debut back in 2015 for its broad scope and diverse cast of characters including trans woman hacktivist Nomi Marks (Jamie Clayton) and closted Spanish actor Lito Rodriguez (Miguel Ángel Silvestre).

Despite early critical acclaim and a die-hard fanbase, Sense8's second season was marred by the departure of Lily Wachowski just weeks into production, and it seems that Netflix were unwilling to continue production of a show that reportedly cost up to $9 million per episode to produce.
