After the third season of the show, Sense8 was canceled by Netflix, an unusual proposal of producing it has been made by porn site XHamster to Lana and Lilly Wachowski, the creators of the show.

Sense8 is an American science fiction web television series that became available for streaming on Netflix. The first season of the show was released on June 5, 2015 and the second season on May 5, 2017. In June, Netflix announced that it had cancelled the big budget show owing to insufficient ratings, regardless of preliminary negotiations being done with the cast for the next season. But this invited huge criticism for Netflix from its fan base post which, it allowed the creators of the show to air a two-hour finale episode next year.

Now, xHamster, one of the largest pornographic and social networking sites, has offered the Wachowski sisters to air the show on its website permanently. The vice-president of the portal wrote to Wachowskis asking them to bring the show back and air it on xHamster.

Some excerpts of the letter read,

We recently read that you’re working on a third season of Sense8 despite the fact that Netflix has no plans to renew the series. We know it’s unconventional, but we want to bring it back – on xHamster. We’re not talking about a parody, or something less than, but an actual revival of the series.

xHamster is currently one of the most trafficked websites on the internet. We get more visitors daily than the New York Times, ESPN or the Daily Mail. In short, we have the eyeballs and the revenue. Unlike with Netflix, you wouldn’t be competing for part of our production budget – it would be yours.

xHamster has a long history of fighting for the rights of sexual speech, and non-normative sexuality. In addition to allowing billions of users to connect with individual articulations of gender and sexuality, we continue to use our audience to speak up against repressive anti-LGBTQ laws in the US and abroad, and for sex ed in public schools Planned Parenthood and the right of sex workers.

We’d like to set up a meeting to see if there’s some fit for us in the future of Sense8. We know we’re an unlikely home. But five years ago, people laughed at the idea of Netflix producing original series. We think that our time, like yours, has come.

Sincerely,

Alex Hawkins

Vice President, xHamster’
