Altered Carbon is a cyberpunk TV series that is created by Laeta Kalogridis. It is based on a novel of the same title by English author by the name of Richard K. Morgan in 2002. Netflix ordered the series in January 2016 and its budget was so insane that is said to be one of Netflix’s most expensive shows. Furthermore, it is said that it had a bigger budget than the first three seasons of Game of Thrones.
The shooting for the show has happened at a lot of great places like Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Laurens Bancroft’s gardens were filmed at the University of British Columbia Rose Garden. The lobby of the Marine Building was Bancroft’s home. Furthermore, Convention Centre’s West Building, the visitor center at VanDusen Botanical Garden, the UBC Museum of Anthropology and The Qube. This just shows how much money was put into making this.
It’s first season release on 2 February 2018 on Netflix and it had a total of 10 episodes. Afterward, the show was renewed for a second season in June of 2018 and it will have a total of 8 episodes. The second season released recently and what’s more that it has some pretty good reviews. Now that the season second as ended, the fans of the series want to know whether they will be getting another season of the show.
Altered Carbon Season 3 Release Date
Altered Carbon Season 3 will be released in February 2021 if it is renewed. This is just a prediction and nothing has been confirmed yet by Netflix. If there is any news on Altered Carbon then we will keep you up-to-date with it.
Altered Carbon Season 3: Will It Happen?
As of writing this, Netflix’s Altered Carbon hasn’t been renewed for a third season. The series’ renewal for a third season will depend on two things. First is the rating which has been quite good for both of the seasons of Altered Carbon. The second reason on which the renewal will depend on is whether or not the show will live up to the expectation of Netflix.
If it does meet these two requirements then the renewal will mostly be happening if now then say goodbye to Altered Carbon. The third season as told early hasn’t been announced but we might be getting the announcement in July of 2020 because all of the previous season’s announcements were made in July.
Altered Carbon Season 3 Plot
As for the plot, the story of the show is set in the future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks, then implanted into the spine of human in order to survive death by having their memories as well as consciousness “re-sleeved” into new bodies. Afterward, we follow the story of a trained “Envoy” soldier named Takeshi Kovacs, who has been downloaded from an off-world prison and into a combat-ready sleeve to do the bidding of a highly influential aristocrat named Laurens Bancroft.
He (Bancroft) was killed but was later back up his stack which was made a few hours before his death. This left him with no memory of who killed him and why. The police said that it was a suicide but Bancroft thinks otherwise. He thinks he was and wants Kovacs to find out what really happened to him. The premises of this show is really interesting and the first two seasons’ story was great too. Right now, the story details of the third season haven’t been announced but we might be getting some details on it in the future.
