Sense8 is coming back to life.

After it was announced earlier this month that Sense8 was canceled after just two seasons, fans rallied on Twitter, asking that the series—which features a diverse cast and LGBTQ storylines—be saved. It wasn’t looking good until a tweet from the Sense8 account indicated otherwise.

A letter to fans, signed by Lana Wachowski, reveals a two-hour special will air next year and that “Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought Sense8 back to life.”

Wachowski made sure to highlight the fan-driven part of this return, and the response showed just how deep the fandom goes.

As for future seasons, Wachowksi left the question open. A Netflix rep told the Hollywood Reporter that “After seeing that the cancellation was a total cluster, we decided to give Sense8 fans the ending they totally deserve.”
