Have faith, please. The cancellation of the cyberpunk show after two seasons came as a terrible shock. All right, let’s chat about Altered Carbon Season 3.
In the future, more than 300 years from now, advanced technology has changed society to the point where human beings are replaceable and death is temporary.
Takeshi Kovacs is the last surviving member of a team of elite space warriors. Who attempted to overthrow the current global order but were all but wiped out.
His mind has been locked away for generations, but enormously wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft frees him. However, Kovacs will need to take action for Bancroft to be resurrected. Bancroft has asked Kovacs to investigate his own murder.
When Will Altered Carbon Season 3 Be Available on Netflix?
Season 3 of Altered Carbon has not been formally announced by Netflix, so a premiere date has not been set. Only a few clues are given at this time, but they should be sufficient to construct a rough outline. On February 2, 2018, Netflix debuted the first season of the science fiction series Altered Carbon.
On February 27, 2020, the second season made its debut. An anime sequel called Altered Carbon: Resleeved debuted, On March 19, 2020. The only data points available to influence assumptions about a release date relate to the high cost of production. It is difficult to speculate how Netflix feels about the cost-to-benefit ratio of any of its titles because the streamer is notoriously quiet about its audience metrics.
Netflix has become more lenient in its dismissal of shows in recent months, so Altered Carbon will need strong ratings for its second season to be renewed. However, the firm does appear committed to the underlying IP, so perhaps the odds will be in Altered Carbon’s father with the release of the anime spin-off.
More About Altered Carbon Season 3
Fans shouldn’t read anything into Netflix’s radio silence. Because the network didn’t order Season 2 until May, five months after Season 1 ended, fans shouldn’t start mourning just yet.

Assuming Altered Carbon is picked up for a third season, we probably won’t see it on Netflix until early 2022. Season 3 of Altered Carbon should be well worth the wait. Even if it might be another two years from the time of this writing before you get to watch it all in one sitting. You can spend the time rewatching the second episode, revisiting the first, or diving into the universe of the spin-off series.
Netflix Decided to End: Series “Altered Carbon” After Two Seasons.
Okay, we don’t buy it yet, but that’s fine. Netflix initially canceled the show despite strong comments from the show’s fanbase. The main reason is that the show’s ratings weren’t high enough to warrant keeping it on the air.
An insider claims that “unexpected budget rises” caused by the epidemic, “uncertainty” about air dates, and the difficulty of managing huge casts in the current atmosphere all contributed to the show’s cancellation.
In a surprising turn of events, the show was supposed to end in April—the same month that The Society was axed.
Netflix is notoriously slow in making renewal or cancellation decisions, and it appears that fans of Altered Carbon did not receive good news after a long wait.
Budget for Altered Carbon Was Higher Than That of “Game of Thrones.”
That’s right, it’s the shocking truth (even if it isn’t shocking at all). The show reportedly broke all records for Netflix in terms of budget. The budget for the film’s production was not disclosed, but Kinnaman claimed it was “larger than Game of Thrones’ first three seasons.”
Something else was revealed much later. Due to Netflix’s cancellation on August 26, 2020, the show will end after two seasons. The April judgment has nothing to do with COVID-19. Instead, it’s an inevitable result of Netflix’s standard method of gauging viewership against renewal fees.
Former Kovacs actor Will Yun Lee reflected on his time on the program via Twitter. The show pays homage to a wide range of cyberpunk classics, including Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, as well as classic literature like Edgar Allan Poe’s works.
Altered Carbon is an Extremely Popular Show
There’s no denying that this show has a dedicated fan base. It appears that the show’s viewership has not diminished in the wake of its discontinuation.
The greatest thing to do now that the program has been canceled is to watch it again. Undoubtedly dissatisfied with the decision to cancel the program.
What Can I Do to Scratch My Altered Carbon Itch?
Richard K. Morgan’s 2019 graphic novel, Altered Carbon: Download Blues, was published by Dynamite Entertainment. In this short novella, situated in the Altered Carbon universe and featuring a variety of interesting characters, Morgan returns to his cyberpunk roots.
Rik Hoskin (White Sand, Red Rising) collaborated on the writing of this 128-page hardcover book. Which also features artwork by Ferran Sellares (Grimm Fairy Tales). It’s the best method to revisit the far-future world of Kovacs and company after finishing the novels and the TV series.
