Netflix has been on a cancellation streak with the latest one affecting "Sense8" Season 2. This news came in weeks after the show dropped its second season on air, leaving many viewers distraught and heartbroken.

While many viewers are unable to understand Netflix's decision to cancel "Sense8" Season 2 without giving them proper closure, Gold Derby reports that the production costs per episode may have been the reason behind the cancellation. A recent interview with producer Roberto Malerba revealed that each episode costs an average of $9 million to produce.

Aside from the hefty price tag involved in producing "Sense8," the second season also took quite a long time to produce. This stems from the fact that the show is filmed in different countries across the globe and the network is looking into producing riskier shows.

While Netflix may have already made their decision to cancel "Sense8" after Season 2, NewNowNext notes that fans of the sci-fi drama are not yet ready to give up on the show. An online petition has been raised in hopes of changing the streaming service's decision to axe the show.

As of publication, the petition to renew "Sense8" Season 2 has already garnered over 400,000 supporters. This just goes to show the amount of love and support the show has amongst its loyal followers.
