We may not be getting a third season, but Netflix at least gave fans what they deserved – a movie-length finale to wrap up the ground-breaking sci-fi thriller.
A month after announcing the show was cancelled, co-creator Lana Wachowski announced on Facebook that a two-hour episode had been commissioned to allow her and Lilly to complete the series.
“Friends kept calling from all over the world asking, ‘Isn’t there anything you can do?’ And the truth was, no. By myself, there was nothing I could do,” she wrote. “But just as the characters in our show discover they are not alone, I too have learned that I am not just a me. I am also a we.”
The sentiment — “I am not just a me. I am also a we.” — is echoed by trans character Nomi Marks (Jamie Clayton) in the new trailer.
The finale will arrive on Netflix on 8 June 2018.
