Netflix has canceled its edgy sci-fi drama “Sense8” after just two seasons.

“After 23 episodes, 16 cities, and 13 countries, the story of the ‘Sense8’ cluster is coming to an end,” Netflix’s Original Content VP Cindy Holland told Variety in a statement.

Cocreated by Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski (“The Matrix”) along with J. Michael Straczynski (“Thor”), “Sense8” revolved around a small cluster of individuals from all over the world who share a mental connection that allows them to tap into one another’s thoughts and skills, and basically experience life together as well as survive being hunted down by a mysterious organisation.

“It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kickass, and outright unforgettable,” Holland continued. “Never has there been a more truly global show with an equally diverse and international cast and crew, which is only mirrored by the connected community of deeply passionate fans all around the world. We thank Lana, Lilly, Joe, and Grant for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment.”

“Sense8” joins a small group of shows canceled by Netflix, which includes “The Get Down,” “Bloodline,” and “Marco Polo.”
