“Sense8” fans were furious when Netflix canceled the original series — but star Naveen Andrews said the same folks “should be happy” with the subsequently ordered two-hour wrap-up.

“I think in terms of the push we put into it, they should be happy with [the special],” the “Lost” alum said Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “There is a satisfying ending to it.”

And yes, he’s in it.

An airdate for the series finale special hasn’t been set yet. Check out the initial wave of fan-fury that made it happen in the first place here.

“The outpouring of love and grief that came in the wake of the news that ‘Sense8’ would not be continuing was so intense that I often found myself unable to open my own email,” co-creator Lana Wachowski wrote on Twitter when Netflix relented to the pressure. “Improbably, unforeseeably [sic], your love has brought ‘Sense8’ back to life.”

After initially scrapping the series for reasons of its “economics,” even Netflix admitted the olive branch was a viewer-based decision.

“After seeing that the cancellation was a total cluster, we decided to give Sense8 fans the ending they totally deserve,” a Netflix spokesperson told TheWrap back then.

“Sense8” endeared itself to audiences due to its strong LGBTQ+ characters and storylines that focused on relationships, including that of a trans woman.
