Sense8 was a refreshingly optimistic show that was gone too soon
Prestige TV shows tend to be dark. But not the Wachowskis' Netflix show. "Bright and colorful, Sense8 is the antithesis of all that," says Sonia Rao. "Or, rather, it was. The often bewildering, always entertaining Netflix series has concluded with a feature-length finale that started streaming Friday and embraces what makes the show’s two seasons unique. Despite its flaws — of which there are many — Sense8 succeeds in championing empathy and depicting the tenaciousness of the human spirit. It is remarkably inclusive and hopeful."

How Sense8 pulled off its series finale -- and an Eiffel Tower shoot -- after its cast dispersed to other projects following cancelation
"On this, everybody had other commitments," says executive producer Grant Hill. "But once we had a schedule, we kept it. We got everybody there who was supposed to be there — sometimes just a little too close for comfort — but it all worked out." The canceled Netflix series only had 27 days to film a feature-length series finale. "There was some talk about doing two episodes, and then we realized that it shouldn’t be episodic," says Hill. "It is a finale and it should be self-contained...On the 27th day, we stopped and everybody cried and then had a very big, large and great party."

Sense8's series finale was equally beautiful and incoherent -- like the show itself
"The finale is not the show at its peak, but at least, with its last note of being 'for the fans,' it does a good job of providing at least some of the joy that made the show so great when it was on its game," says Rowan Kaiser.
