‘Altered Carbon’ Canceled By Netflix After 2 Seasons

Recommended Posts

=Netflix has opted not to order a third season of the mind-bending, body-swapping sci-fi series Altered Carbon.

The eight-episode Season 2 of the cyberpunk drama, which starred Anthony Mackie, was released on Feb. 27, followed by an anime movie on March 19.

 

I hear Netflix’s decision not to proceed with further seasons was made in April and is not COVID-related but stems from the streamer’s standard viewership vs. cost renewal review process. (Netflix recently canceled two previously renewed series, The Society and I Am Not OK With This, citing COVID-related circumstances.)

 

Altered Carbon was created by Laeta Kalogridis based on the 2002 novel of the same title by English author Richard K. Morgan.

 

Season 2 of Altered Carbon began 30 years after the epic conclusion of Season 1, and found Takeshi Kovacs (Mackie), the lone surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, continuing his centuries old quest to find his lost love Quellcrist Falconer (Renée Elise Goldsberry).

 

Mackie took over as Takeshi from Joel Kinnaman, who played the starring role in Season 1, run by Kalogridis. Alison Schapker was the Season 2 showrunner.

 

Netflix’s sci-fi slate includes Another Life, which has been renewed for another season, and recent entry Away.

I never got around to watching this series, did they end it on a big cliffhanger?

 

No spoilers please, I do still plan to watch it when I can.

Not that I remember, but they didn't finish up various plot lines... and what sucks the most is they only really needed one more season to finish off the source material from what I've been told by others.

Thanks for sharing! Also regarding the anime film, that's a prequel correct?

The anime film is set between season 1 and season 2.
