xHamster wants to give the canceled Netflix series a home.
The porn site xHamster sent an open letter to series creators Lilly and Lana Wachowski offering to pick up the third season, which they’ve reportedly been working on despite the cancelation. Vice President Alex Hawkins wants an “actual revival of the series” to happen on xHamster, citing traffic numbers and a unique opportunity:
We know that a series about polymorphous perversity is a hard sell for a mainstream network like Netflix. We have no such limitations, and also understand implicitly the interconnectedness of sexualities across boundaries. In short, we are a we.
It’s not the first time xHamster has dabbled in original content: It released reality series The Sex Factor in 2015. In the letter, Hawkins references how xHamster has pushed back against “repressive anti-LGBTQ laws in the U.S. and abroad.” Last year, it blocked North Carolina users in protest of the state’s anti-LGBTQ bathroom bill. It also banned porn that depicts rape.
The Sense8 online fandom is strong, and responses have been mixed.

It’ll be interesting to see if this catches Netflix’s attention. Maybe Netflix already has a surprise season 3 announcement coming.
In an email to the Daily Dot, Hawkins said he couldn’t comment on any “deliberations or considerations,” but added: “We put out the letter publicly because we knew there was no way to get a meeting with them as a porn company. We knew we’d have to show them that fans wanted and accepted our involvement.”
The Wachowskis have not responded.
