Altered Carbon Season 2 Spoilers To Follow:
Altered Carbon season 3 hasn’t been confirmed yet. And much has been made from lead actors being swapped between Joel Kinnaman, Anthony Mackie, and can Yun Lee counting on regardless of the story demands. However, these changes are quite just superficial.
While the primary season played out sort of a cyberpunk mystery, season two expanded the planet of Altered Carbon by introducing more fantastical, alien elements into a broader narrative.
The Scenes In Between
Given this leap between seasons, expect more grand alterations in season three, assuming in fact that Netflix plans to renew Altered Carbon moving forward. Fortunately, this seems to be a given. But what’s future for Kovacs and the way will season three pile up to what’s come before? Over two years passed between the primary two seasons, so if Altered Carbon is renewed for a 3rd chapter, then don’t expect new episodes to arrive until 2022 at the earliest.
That might appear to be a short time, but this long wait is quite fitting, given how centuries can expire this show within the blink of an eye fixed.
Altered Carbon Season 3 Cast: Who Are Going To Be In It?
At the top of season two, it’s strongly implied that Poe protected a replica of the first Kovacs before his stack was destroyed. Showrunner Alison Schapker has since confirmed this to be canon during an interview with IGN, where she revealed that Mackie’s Kovacs lives on as a DHF in digital form.
However, Mackie’s body or “stack” was destroyed before this, so will he return, or will a replacement actor take his place within the lead role? Here’s what Schapker has got to say:
Elevator and you are like, ‘I think Kovacs is returning, but in what sleeve?’ and that we wanted to form that promise to the audience in season 2.”
The Audience Response;
Aside from some season one flashbacks, Joel Kinnamon didn’t reprise the role this point round, but Mackie could still reappear to a point moving forward. However, it still seems likely a replacement face will take the lead given what Schapker recently said to Hollywood Reporter:
“If we do our jobs right,” fans would have “Kovacs played by another actor then another actor then another actor” over several seasons as his consciousness is transferred to different sleeves.
