Altered Carbon season 3 Netflix release date: Will there be another series?
Altered Carbon premiered on Netflix worldwide today (Thursday, February 27) and fans have been binge-watching the sci-fi series ever since it dropped. The show is based on the 2002 novel of the same name by Ricard K.Morgan and this time around featured a brand new cast but will there be more to come and if so, when can fans expect season three?
Will there be another series of Altered Carbon?
At the moment, Altered Carbon has not been renewed for a third series.
The latest season only premiered on Netflix on Thursday, February 27, so it is still very early days for news of a renewal.
Netflix usually announces cancellations and renewals within the first six months of the show premiering, so fans can expect to hear details of season three in summer 2020.
However, there is always the chance that news of the sci-fi serries future could come sooner.

For example, Spinning Out was cancelled one month after it premiered and The Witcher season two was given the green light before the first series even aired.
If Altered Carbon season three is given the go-ahead, it is likely to premiere in February 2021 at the earliest
However, the first two seasons had a two-year gap between them, so the third series could follow suit and be released in 2022.
Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.
There are high hopes for the Altered Carbon to continue, considering the events of season two.
Altered Carbon is also based on the 2002 novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan.
The novel is part of a trilogy series and while parts of book number three have featured in the first two seasons, there is still a lot of original source material for show creator Laeta Kalogridis to draw upon.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Alison Schapker hinted that there would be at least one more season.
She said: “When I came on board, [creator] Laeta Kalogridis was already mapping out season two.
“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.
“The goal of Altered Carbon is every season serves a new mystery and a new sleeve and a new planet.”

In the second series, Takeshi (played by Anthony Mackie) was able to track down his long lost love Quellcrist Falconer (Renée Elise Goldsberry) only to find her a changed woman.
In the finale, Takeshi sacrificed his own life to kill the Elder inhabiting his sleeve, which means an actor may step in as Takeshi in the third series.
In a turn of events, Poe (Chris Conner) returned after being shot down and discovered that he had raw human DHF deep inside his memory.
After he and Dig (Dina Shihabi) analysed the DHF, they discovered that it belonged to Takeshi.
