The “Altered Carbon” is an American based cyberpunk TV show, created by Laeta Kalogridis based on the book by the same name. The show is set in the 23rd century where technology is so advanced that people can switch their souls and transfer it from one body to another as they have digitalised brains.
The show has been revived for a new season with a total run of eight episodes on Netflix. The season two got over on 19th March 2020 and due to the pandemic, Covid-19, the release dates for the season 3 have been compromised and it is hoped that it will be released in the upcoming year of 2021.
An official date has not been informed but we are sure that a new season will happen, and the story will continue as too many questions were left unanswered in the last season.
It is widely known that Netflix usually waits around a month to announce about a new season or any news regarding the show but a lot of time has passed since any news about the show has come out but it’s pretty clear that this delay is because of the global pandemic.
The novels that the show is based on has elements and each element has three stories and two of them, have already been used in the two seasons.
So, it is possible that the show will follow the same path and have a trilogy, then following this trend a new season is almost sure to be released. (although Morgan himself declared that he hopes the show can go on for as long as five seasons).
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, one of the showrunners of the show, Alison Schapker stated, “When I came on board, [creator] Laeta Kalogridis was already mapping out season two,” she shares. “The idea was that this was going to be an anthology series but one that also had extensive continuity and rewarded viewers on a season-by-season basis as far as Takeshi Kovacs’ journey.”
Almost all of the cast of the season 2 is said to be returning for the next season including- Yun Lee as Kovacs Prime, Chris Conner as Edgar Poe, and Renée Elise as Quellcrist. We are also supposing Anthony Mackie to return in season 3.
There has been no update on the new faces and nor has the production said anything about it.
As the show revolves around the idea of transferring souls from one body to other as mentioned before, a lot of scenes left a lot of questions in the minds of their fans and they are eagerly waiting for the unanswered questions. Many theories have raised on social media platforms about the upcoming season some even say that the new season will show what will be happening around the story about Reileen and Kovac, where they have been if we discover what Raileen and Kovac will do.
