CANCELLATION OF THE ‘ALTERED CARBON’
We have a piece of bad news for ‘Altered Carbon’ fans, who are waiting for its next season. The makers have decided to cancel the production of the series after releasing season 2. This time we can’t blame the global pandemic, COVID-19 for the cancellation of the series, other Netflix shows, The Society, and I Am Not Okay This. The cancellation was decided back in April after the release of the second season.
Though Netflix has not commented about the reason why the show has canceled. But Alison Schapker, the writer of the series, shared this information on Twitter on Aug 26, 2020. In her tweet, we find her thanking all the members who worked in this sci-fi series whether they are cast, writer, or all the crew members behind the camera.
Grateful for every minute I got working with the incredibly talented writers, cast and crew of #AlteredCarbonSeason2. Thanks to all who went on the journey with us. Long live Quellcrist Falconer! @netflix @skydance

It is likely to say that the viewership of the show was not satisfying the money invested in this high budget series. As per sources, each episode of the series cost around $7-$9 million (estimated around Rs. 52 to Rs. 65 crores). It is said that these series cost more than the first three seasons of Games Of Thrones. This can be the reason for the cancellation of the next season of the series.
