Despite critical and audience acclaim, the beloved Netflix series has been scrapped. The show starred Chris Conner, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Will Yun Lee, Dichen Lachman, Martha Higareda, Ato Essandoh, Joel Kinnaman, James Purefoy, Kristin Lehman, Trieu Tran, Hayley Law, and Anthony Mackie.
According to Deadline, the cancellation was the result of not enough Netflix viewers watching compared to the cost of the production.
Netflix summarizes the show as:
"More than 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until impossibly wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again. Kovacs will have to do something for Bancroft, though, if he wants to be resurrected. Bancroft's request of Kovacs is to solve a murder -- Bancroft's. "Altered Carbon" is based on Richard K. Morgan's cyberpunk noir novel of the same name."
