Since Netflix cancelled the series earlier this year, many fans have been crying out and petitioning for more. While the streaming service was only willing to produce a 2-hour special to wrap up the show, a popular adult entertainment website wants to make the entire third season.
You may not think that an adult site is the best place to produce a sci-fi TV series, but Alex Hawkins, xHamster’s Vice President, made a compelling argument. According to him, the site not only has the money to make the show work, but it also has the audience.
“xHamster is currently one of the most trafficked websites on the Internet,” Hawkins wrote in the letter. “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.
“We also have the disposition. 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 sounds as though xHamster may really understand the essence of Sense8, as well as its audience. It’ll be interesting to see if the Wachowskis decide to take the site up on its offer.«
