Altered Carbon Cancelled at Netflix

Altered Carbon Cancelled at Netflix

has removed ‘s stack and stomped on it, hard: The sci-fi drama has been cancelled and will not return for Season 3.

The streaming service’s decision to end Altered Carbon was based on the costs of the special effects-heavy series and not on the COVID-19 industry shutdown and its related complications.

The show was based on Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 novel of the same name. It was set in the distant future, in which a person’s existence — thoughts, memories, etc. — were stored in a circular metal “stack” installed in the spinal column. When bodies (or “sleeves,” as they were known in the series) failed, there existed the possibility of transferring them into new vessels.
