Hell hath no fury like a fandom scorned. Last night, in a twist Game of Thrones would be proud of, Netflix announced it was bringing back original series Sense8 for a two-hour finale.

Yesterday, creator Lana Wachowski took to social media to announce that Netflix was letting the show close off its story in a two-hour special.
