A Netflix tweet about 'unfinished stories' has aged very badly

Netflix announces 2023 movie releases

Back in 2017, the popular sci-fi drama Sense8was cancelled after just two seasons, despite it receiving positive reviews and gaining a fanbase.

Of course, Sense8 fans were devastated at the news and slammed Netflix for not renewing the series, they also noted how the last season didn't provide a conclusion to the storyline and lacked a proper ending.

One disgruntled fan tweeted Netflix directly, demanding "closure" and received a response from the streaming service's official Twitter account.

"We don’t like leaving a story unfinished," it read.

"We learned a lot from Sense and we’re going to try not to do this in the future."

Now, internet sleuths have managed to dig this old tweet up after a spate of shows have cancelled by Netflix over the years as well as more recently such as Fate: The Winx Saga, The Midnight Club, The Society, The Baby-Sitters Club, Blockbuster, Uncoupled, Anne with an E, 1899, Resident Evil, GLOW, Warrior Nun and The Chair.

All of the shows were unable to finish their stories despite Netflix saying it was "going to try not to do this in the future."

The fandoms of the cancelled shows have been pointing out as the old tweet received new engagement five years on.
