Netflix’s cyberpunk series based on Altered Carbon novel by Richard K. Morgan has been making heads turn ever since its debut on the platform in Feb 2018. The Scifi series makes viewers question the concept of death. After the second season ended with Takeshi Kovacs sacrificing himself, fans are dying to find out will he return in Altered Carbon Season 3. So, here’s what we know about the third season.
Is Altered Carbon Season 3 Coming?
The second season of Altered Carbon, comprising eight episodes released on Netflix on February 27, 2020. Now talking about the third season, it has been about two years since the streaming service has not yet announced the renewal of the series for Altered Carbon Season 3. But before you spoil your mood, let us inform you that the second season was also never supposed to happen. However, after the critical success and fan response towards season one, Netflix renewed it.
Therefore, there is a good chance that Altered Carbon Season 3 may also happen in the future. Also, the ending of the second has left a lot of room for the story to continue in further seasons. Unfortunately, there is no confirmation about the production of the release about the season to come. However, there is any update about the third season, your favorite entertainment hub, TechRadar247, will keep you updated.
What To Expect From Altered Carbon Season 3?
After Takeshi Kovacs’ sister, Reileen Kawahara, was killed dubiously in the first season. In the second season, he took a new sleeve and embarked on a quest to find Quellcrist Falconer, his long-lost lover. In season 2, we see Quell pushing to persuade The Elder to spare human lives. At the end of the second season, Takeshi Kovacs and Old Kovacs accomplish Quell’s suicidal mission without her knowing, and Takeshi sacrifices his life to protect the planet.
The possible third season is likely to pick up after the ending of the second season. Altered Carbon Season 3 might focus on Quellcrist Falconer. she was assumed to be dead, whereas she actually fled from Harlan’s World because of Takeshi’s sacrifice. We expect to Quell to use her revolutionary mindset and warm-hearted character to free Old Kovacs from Protectorate’s grips in the third season. There are several unanswered questions after the second season’s ending, like what happened to Kovacs and his sister Reileen. There is a chance that we may see Anthony Macie’s returning in Altered Carbon Season3 no matter what character; if this happens, fans will be delighted.
A Genetic Virus?
In the book, woken Furies, Kovacs, Sylvie, and the rest of their crew have returned from New Hok. To protest the government, system, and governing parties, they decide to distribute a biogeneric virus. This may occur in the third season when Kovacs explores deep space and puts together a new army for Quell.
Younger Kovacs Died?
When Kovacs and another UN Envoy raid the base to rescue Sylvie in the book Woken Furies, the Envoy betrays him, and Kovacs is arrested. Sylvie summons AngelFire, which extinguishes the entire troop. Of course, we’ve already seen Quell do the same stunt in the series. The twist is that younger Kovacs or Kovacs Prime also burns and dies at this moment. In the same way, K Prime might be dying off in Altered Carbon Season 3 to keep the balance.
Will There Be A New Envoy Group?
Will Quell form a new Envoy organization now that she’s returned and is respected, quoted, and worshipped? Quell may take over a pseudo-group led by a pseudo-leader and turn them into a true Envoy group. What will she do now that she has returned? She cares for Kovacs, but it isn’t essential to her. Quell believes in a greater goal, and while certain facets of the world have improved since she was last active in it, others have remained the same or worsened. This could provide Quell with the motivation he needs to start over.
Will Kovacs Get New Sleeve?
After returning Ryker’s sleeve, Kovacs exited season one. He is initially placed in the sleeve of a singer as a diagnosis and then later in the sleeve of a soldier who has been upgraded. The soldier sleeve is tough, has a link to weaponry, and is infused with wolf genes. Excluding the wolf gene, much of th is comes in helpful in the second season. Kovacs is unable to battle against the sleeve’s former alpha and Kovac’s old trainer/father-like figure. He can’t because his sleeve won’t let him.
