      When fans found out that the TV drama series Sense8 had been cancelled after only two seasons, they rose up and took action.

      Their campaign to save the global-minded show was so successful that Netflix ordered a two-hour finale special.

      Co-creator Lana Wachowski and international cast members from around the world thanked their devoted audiences by creating a video in which they talk about what the show means to them.

      Wachowski, who is openly transgender, and several cast members participated in a meet-and-greet at the Davie Street Party on August 4 and marched in the Vancouver Pride parade on August 6.

      Their appearance on stage at the Sunset Beach Festival after the parade makes it into the video, as well as a clip of cast members Brian J. Smith (who plays Will Gorski) and Max Riemelt (who portrays Wolfgang Bogdanow) chatting in Coal Harbour.


      In addition to Wachowski, the video features directors Tom Tykwer and James McTeigue, and cast members Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Max Riemelt, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Brian J. Smith, Toby Onwumere, Freema Agyeman, and Alfonso Herrera.

      Check out the video below and see if you can spot Vancouver, amongst all the clips of various Pride festivities from around the world.

      The finale special will air in 2018.
