The futuristic sci-fi series Altered Carbon has come to an end. Netflix has canceled its original series after two seasons according to Variety.

The show followed political operative Takeshi Kovacs–played by Joel Kinnaman in Season 1, Anthony Mackie in Season 2, and voiced by Ray Chase in the animated feature Resleeved. A wealthy man offers Kovacs a chance at a new life, if he can solve a murder.
