Altered Carbon Season 3: Cancellation announcement
The pandemic is one of the reasons behind the cancellation of several Netflix originals. Altered Carbon is one of the cancelled shows by the streamer, and the reason behind it is in the next part of the article. I can feel the shock fans been through because of the cancellation news as it was unexpected. The series had a decent number of viewers and the second season just hit the screens in February. Netflix announced that it would not feature Altered Carbon Season 3 in April 2020.
Altered Carbon Season 3: Reason for Cancellation
You might be knowing that Netflix has a specific algorithm on the based of which it decides that if a series should be renewed or cancelled. The series got suspended due to the viewership vs cost standards of the streamer and has nothing to do with the COVID-19 pandemic. Altered Carbon featured both visual and special effects which take a lot of monetary support. And maintaining the costs when the viewership is not progressing at all, is something that Netflix can not overlook. So Altered Carbon was doomed to be cancelled by the streamer.
Altered Carbon Season 3: Plot
Well, the show features a futuristic world in the year 2384. We are in a metropolis city named Bay City. Modern humans have their memory in a disk-like device known as stacks. And human bodies are referred to as sleeves, in which these stacks get implanted. In this case, one can live forever if their cards are resleeved from time to time. But they can die too if their cards get destroyed with no backup available. A family named as Meths (one of the wealthiest of the time) has the means to live as long as they want. They keep a satellite backup and use clones for resleeving.
