Netflix isn’t messing around with its cancellations lately:is the latest show to be shown the exit, canceled after two seasons.
“Netflix’s decision not to proceed with further seasons was made in April and is not COVID-related but stems from the streamer’s standard viewership vs. cost renewal review process,” Deadline reported Wednesday.
Netflix didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The news follows the cancellations of the teen series The Society and I Am Not Okay With This, shows that were previously renewed before Netflix canceled them, due to-related reasons.
Altered Carbon starred two different leads as Takeshi Kovacs, a former soldier — Joel Kinnaman in season one and Anthony Mackie in season two. Set in a future where consciousness can be transferred to different bodies, the ambitious cyberpunk series explored technology, AI and cyberspace, and spawned an anime film, Altered Carbon: Resleeved.
Fans of the show are pretty upset.
“This is why I have trouble committing to anything Netflix does. Lord help me if it takes me more than a couple of episodes to commit…” one tweeted.
Although others weren’t impressed with season two.
“The first season was good. The second one was a letdown,” tweeted another.
Netflix has a track record of canceling expensive sci-fi series after two seasons, including Sense8 () and The OA.
