Altered Carbon season 3 release date, cast, synopsis, and more

Has Netflix announced the Altered Carbon season 3 release date? What is the current status of the sci-fi TV series?

Altered Carbon premiered on Netflix back in 2018 with whopping 10 episodes. Based on Richard K. Morgan‘s novel, the series depicted a cyberpunk dystopian future where the rich got to be immortal through sleeve technology and the poor had to survive against all odds.

The series starred Joel Kinnaman, who played an ex-soldier tasked to solve a murder. “Altered Carbon” series cast also included James Purefoy, Martha Higareda, Dichen Lachman, and many more. Although it received positive reviews throughout two seasons, Altered Carbon did not get a renewal for another season.

Is Altered Carbon cancelled?

Unfortunately, Netflix cancelled Altered Carbon on August 26, 2020. Considering the halted productions of other series, the popular streaming platform decided not to release Altered Carbon season 3.

Why is Altered Carbon season 3 cancelled?

While the fans initially thought that this was about the pandemic, Netflix cancelled Altered Carbon mainly because of the viewership counts. The cyberpunk TV series started well and managed to get a good score from the audience at first. But as the series continued, the views started getting lower and lower.

On the other hand, viewership counts are not the only factor behind a cancellation or a confirmation for a TV series. The subscription service also analyzes the title’s popularity and how the fans react to it on other social platforms. If TV series has a dynamic audience that constantly follows and asks about the show, it probably gets a renewal.

Netflix also shares the scenes of these types of shows on its official YouTube channel as well. Because it helps the streaming giant to gain insights about the fan base of the shows.

The lead actor in the first season was Joel Kinnaman as Takeshi Kovacs. After the events in the first season, the protagonist changed its sleeve and Anthony Mackie became the new Takeshi Kovacs.

Season 2 brought up questions about the new leading actor for season 3. But unfortunately, the curiosities regarding the cast and the synopsis will stay unraveled as the show will not continue.

Altered Carbon season 3 synopsis

The story of Kovacs had a lot to say if Netflix had not cancelled the third season. Altered Carbon got renewal for the second season back in 2018. Along with the leading actor, another name filled the showrunner position. Alison Schapker took the position as the showrunner and Laeta Kalogridis who was the former showrunner, became the producer.

Netflix also released an anime spin-off called Altered Carbon: Resleeved to further expand the world of Altered Carbon. The anime depicted the cyberpunk world of Altered Carbon and the events that happened 250 years ago.

Although it is a great watch for those who love watching stories about dystopias where people used cybernetics to cheat death, it could not make the effect Netflix had planned. Though you should watch if you were expecting Altered Carbon season 3.

The third season of the series does not have a trailer as Netflix decided to stop production completely. That said, you can still watch the Altered Carbon: Resleeved official trailer below.

Well, that’s all you need to know about the Altered Carbon season 3 release date. There are lots of other sci-fi series and dystopic TV shows which you can find on Netflix’s library, though.

    Well, I’m glad I haven’t paid for a Netflix subscription yet. This was the only show I needed it for. Everything else can be found elsewhere or just isn’t that appealing to me.

    Second season was a flop. Mackie just played condor. He has no breadth of character type. The first season was amazing. Comic is really good. Was just boring to watch. I could not even finish season 2 despite anticipating it with excitement. It was a bummer.
