The series Altered Carbon is an American origin web TV series. It is a cyberpunk type of series created by Laeta Kalogridis. This TV series is based on a 2002 novel named the same, that is, Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan.
Two seasons of the series are premiered till now. Firstly, Altered Carbon Season: 1 was released on February 2, 2018, with 10 episodes in it. After the huge success and demand from the audience, the series was officially renewed on July 27, 2018, for a second season. Season: 2 was premiered on February 27, 2020, with a total of 8 episodes in it.
After the hectic ending of the second season, the fans of the show are demanding for a third season. And the most asked question is will the show renew? Here are the information we have so far.
Will there be a third season?
No official statement is yet made about the renewal of the show for a third season. However, this series has a time gap two years between them, so the third season is expected to be released in late 2021 or early 2022.
In addition, the showrunner, Alison Schapker said: “I have many ideas and plans regarding Altered Carbon Season: 3“. For instance, her interest in renewing the show is known.
Expected release of the show?
One of the most asked questions in the present date is When will the show release? Netflix has disrupted this trend, along with the ongoing pandemic COVID-19, any prediction about the season: 3 of the show is impossible. In addition, no official announcement is yet made about the renewal of the show, thus suggesting no hints about the show renewal.
However, it is pretty sure that the third season will not be premiered before 2022 because filming in many parts of the world is temporarily stopped to avoid the spread of the virus. In addition, the show Altered Carbon requires extreme VFX. Some of our close sources reported that this high VFX takes more than 6 months of huge post-production work. Since the show is not officially renewed, therefore the release in 2021 is nearly impossible.
Expected cast in the third season?
At the end of Altered Carbon Season: 2, the two major characters, Dania Harlan & Colonel Carrera of Harlan’s World died. This indicated the turn away from the Takeshi Kovacs’s home planet into the future.
At the climax of the second season, Takeshi Kovacs’s consciousness was rescued and had become a digital form, therefore his role was finished. However, it could mean that the star Anthony Mackie will no longer play the role of Takeshi Kovacs unless this scene is a flashback from the past.
The star Anthony Mackie doesn’t want his role in the Altered Carbon to end. He loved working with the crew and other cast members of the show. So the addition of Mackie in the third season depends on the role and as per the script of the creator.
Well, this part of the information of Anthony Mackie will only be revealed once the show is premiered.
