The cyberpunk drama, based on Richard K. Morgan’s novel of the same name, premiered on the streaming platform in February 2018. The show explores themes of technology, human-machine interface, gender identity, cyberspace, paranoia, power, and corruption through the character of the dead prisoner and war vet Takeshi Kovacs, who, after 250 years, returns to life in a new body and is offered freedom by helping a titan of industry solve his own (future) murder.
Fans of the compelling science fiction series “Altered Carbon” have been waiting for word on a possible third season with bated breath. The program has gripped audiences and left them wanting more with its mind-bending concepts, futuristic setting, and sophisticated storytelling. In this article, we’ll delve into the question on every fan’s mind: Will there be an “Altered Carbon” Season 3?
Will There Be An Altered Carbon Season 3?
Netflix ended Altered Carbon after two seasons and the anime spinoff movie Reserved. This means that there won’t be a season 3 – at least not on Netflix. The second season of Altered Carbon only had eight episodes, while the first season had ten.
This shows that Netflix didn’t believe in the show as much as they did in the first season. At the time, the streamer had just pulled The Society and I Am Not OK with This because of problems with COVID, but it was said that the cancellation of Altered Carbon did not have anything to do with COVID.
Altered Carbon was one of Netflix’s most pricey shows, so it wasn’t a big surprise that it was cancelled. Altered Carbon could only be made on a movie budget because it takes place in the future and is so big. Joel Kinnaman, who was in the first season, told The Guardian that the first season of Altered Carbon cost more than the first three seasons of Game of Thrones.

Even if you have a small but loyal fan group, you can’t spend that much money on them. For Altered Carbon to be worth making, it would have to be one of Netflix’s most popular shows, with as many viewers as Stranger Things or The Crown.
What is the Ending of Altered Carbon?
The second season of Altered Carbon finished with a shocking twist: Kovacs killed himself to stop a bad AI named Konrad Harlan from destroying Harlan’s World, the planet where Kovacs was born. But before he died, he sent his stack to a satellite in orbit around the Earth, hoping that someone would find him and bring him back.
While this was going on, Quellcrist Falconer left Harlan’s World with Kovacs’ loyal AI friend Poe, whose memory was messed up by a virus but was fixed by Kovacs. In the last scene, Poe used a secret backup stack of Kovacs that he had hidden in his system. This suggests that there may be two versions of Kovacs still living in the galaxy.
Altered Carbon Had a Bigger Budget Than Game Of Thrones
Yes, I know that sounds strange, but it’s true. Reports say that the show was the most expensive one that Netflix has made so far. Kinnaman said it had a “bigger budget than Game of Thrones’ first three seasons,” but he didn’t say how much it cost to make.
Then something else was found out. After two seasons, Netflix will end the show on August 26, 2020. The choice was made in April, and it had nothing to do with COVID-19. But rather a result of how Netflix usually figures out how many people watch vs. how much it costs to repeat. Will Yun Lee, who used to play Kovacs, wrote on Twitter about his memories of the show.
A lot of cyberpunk classics, like Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, and works of literature, like Edgar Allan Poe, are mentioned in the series.
