- James Purefoy as Laurens Bancroft
- Martha Higareda as Kristin Ortega
- Chris Conner as Edgar Poe
The first season of the cyberpunk series starred Joel Kinnaman as elite interstellar warrior Takeshi Kovacs, and since the show involves body-swapping, Anthony Mackie was brought in to play Takeshi in the second season.
Season 2 began thirty years after the epic happenings of the first season. Elite interstellar warrior Takeshi Kovacs continues his centuries-old quest to find his estranged lover Quellcrist Falconer.
In the end of season 2, an A.I. known as Poe returns after months of decompression and he seems to be having certain hidden data of his own to be revealed. The end of the season hints that the show has more to narrate, therefore season 3 was predicted by the audience.
The Release Date
Unfortunately, the show will not be making a comeback, adding to the dismay of the fans but the makers have confirmed that this stalling has nothing to do with the global pandemic.
What needs to be blamed is the unexpected budget increases due to the pandemic and standard viewership vs. cost renewal review process.
Recently, many shows on Netflix including The Society and I Am Not OK With This have been cancelled blaming the coronavirus crisis but not for this show. Altered Carbon is facing budget issues and therefore had to be shoved into the graveyard.
