Hello Altered Carbon Wiki,
I hope all of you users and viewers have enjoyed the show and like the wiki so far. But I wanted to make an announcement about Season 2. So according to [cancelledscifi.com/2018/02/17/cancellation-watch-viewership-numbers-for-altered-carbon-and-the-cloverfield-paradox-the-cw-expands-its-schedule-plus-ratings-results Elite Daily], '''Altered Carbon''' averaged 1.2 million viewers after three days and 2.5 million after seven days, indicating modest viewership. And viewership dropped by episode with the last having the lowest average thus far. While it's not terrible in any way, Netflix expected the show to do better given the hype before the premiere.
But regrading Season 2, many sources in the last week have said Netflix is very tentative about renewing it. However, SpoilerTV, a very reliable source, broke news in December that Netflix had renewed Altered Carbon for Season 2! While that's great news, the show has a long way to go - the second season would focus on [[Woken Furies]], the second book of the Altered Carbon book series and ultimately more expensive, since the second book involves bigger bigger sets and props like spaceships. To give you a perspective, each episode of the first season took about $9 million dollars to make. [[Joel Kinnaman]] said that one set itself was about six football fields long. So for such a demanding second season asking for a bigger budget when it barely garnered the views Netflix wanted, negotiations will have to take place. I'll keep you all up to date.
For what you guys can do at home to make Season 2 definitely happen, is to promote the show yourselves! Recommend to your friends, rave about it in social media! Season 2 can only happen if you guys really want it!
