Just picture a world where physical death doesn’t exist and where people’s minds may be uploaded into different bodies. Some things are the same and some are different in this reality.
In Altered Carbon, we are asked to follow the exploits of Takeshi Kovacs, a former freedom fighter turned mercenary who is attempting to adapt to a world that has changed considerably in the centuries since his consciousness was last housed in a physical body.
Follow along as Tak explores the globe and his own past during his slumber to learn the secrets that have been kept from him. Through it all, we suffer alongside him, feeling agony, sorrow, and loss.

Altered Carbon Season 3 Release Date
The novels by Richard Morgan serve as the inspiration for the Netflix series Altered Carbon. In the show, Morgan’s writings serve as inspiration for some of the plot points, but the story itself is original.
To facilitate the transfer of human consciousness across other bodies, “stacks” (digital representations of the mind) have been developed and can be implanted in hardware sleeves. Stacks may be frozen for decades or even millennia as punishment for criminal or disobedient inmates.
When we last left Kovacs, he had just had his stack “spun up” into a fresh sleeve and was looking into the reported suicide of a wealthy businessman.
Now in season two, he’s sporting a new look and on the trail of an ex-lover who seems intent on wreaking havoc in a world where the political status quo is perpetually precarious. What appears to be a straightforward issue rapidly becomes extraordinarily convoluted in both scenarios.
Do We Get A Third Season Of “Altered Carbon,” Or Does It Get Cancelled?
Season 3 of Altered Carbon will not happen. announced in August 2020 that Netflix had cancelled the show after two seasons.
The streamers reportedly cancelled the show because it did not fare well in the regular “viewership vs. cost renewal evaluation procedure,” not because of the pandemic.
Who Will Star in Season 3 of “Altered Carbon?”

Renée Elise Goldsberry stars as revolutionary leader Quellchrist Falconer, Chris Conner plays the AI Poe, James Purefoy plays Laurens Bancroft, Martha Higareda plays Kristin Ortega, Chris Conner plays Edgar Poe, Dichen Lachman and Elizabeth Maxwell play Reileen Kawahara/Gina, and Ato Essandoh plays Vernon Elliot.
Can You Imagine Season 3 of Altered Carbon?
If only Season 3 of the show could come back and answer two major questions we have. First of all, we haven’t figured out what’s going on with Kovacs. Should we assume that he has passed away? Will he make it? Tell me what happened to him at the end of Season 2.
When it comes to Kovacs, are we going to follow the older version or the newer one that Carrera has concocted? If we’re going to keep the Kovacs we’ve come to love, how did he avoid being “real-deathed” (permanently murdered with no coming back) at the conclusion of season 2?
The end of season 2 leaves a lot of room for the writers to do anything they want with Kovacs. What’s going to happen to Poe is the other big unanswered question.
Who is this DHF he claims to know within his computer? May it be our Kovacs, or could Poe be maturing into the person he’s always wanted to be? It looks like we’ll be spending a lot of time here wondering what might have been now that the programme has been cancelled.
