Altered Carbon: What Is The Show About?
The show is set 300 years into the future where society is completely transformed by modern technology. But the major upgrades include the human bodies becoming interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. A group of elite warriors led an uprising but were defeated by the new world.

The second season ended in 2020. It took two years for the second season to premiere after the show’s debut in 2020. The show has managed to keep a decent rating followed by a good viewership. However, Netflix is yet to renew the show for a third season. But given the show’s popularity, the show will definitely get a season 3. If season 3 goes ahead, we cant expect it anytime before 2022.
What To Expect From Season 3?
For those who have read the novel, you all know what to expect from the third season. At the end of season 2, it was highly implied that Poe backed up a copy of the original Kovacs before his stack was destroyed.

The Elders and their technology will continue to make their presence known in season 3 as well.
