Netflix cancels modified carbon after two seasons
After months of limbo, Modified carbon has been officially canceled by Netflix. The deadline broke the story earlier today and noted that the actual decision was made in April. Additionally, the report states that this was not a COVID-19-related cancellation. Instead, Netflix decided that the high cost of Seasons 1 and 2 made Season 3 untenable.
Laeta Kalogridis adapted the Modified carbon novels for the Netflix television series. The show took place in the distant future where the rich can escape death by downloading their spirits into new bodies called sleeves. The main character was Takeshi Kovacs, apparently the last survivor of a rebel faction called the Envoys. Joel Kinnaman portrayed Kovacs in Season 1, while Anthony Mackie reprized the role in Season 2. Will Yun Lee did it again in both seasons as the original Takeshi Kovacs.
Chris Conner starred in both seasons as Poe, an artificial intelligence who took inspiration from Edgar Allan Poe. Simone Missick, Lela Loren, Dina Shihibi, Torben Liebrecht and James Santo joined the cast in season 2.
Netflix has also released an anime film called Modified carbon: resleeved earlier this year. However, there is currently no indication that the series will continue in any form after the cancellation.
