Neo's story will continue on the big screen 17 years later with Matrix 4. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will return, respectively, as the protagonist and Trinity under the direction of Lana Wachowski. However, another of the main characters in the franchise will not return in this fourth installment. We're talking about Laurence Fishburne, who brought Morpheus to life.
The actor has recently explained, in an interview with New York Magazine, why we won't see Neo's mentor in the continuation of the saga. The reason is simple: he has not been called for his return.

"I haven't been invited to. Maybe that'll make me write another play. I wish you all the best. I hope it's great."
The answer to Morfeo's absence can be found in The Matrix Online, a video game released in 2005 that aims to function as a continuation of the film trilogy by expanding the canon created by the Wachowski sisters. In it, Morpheus dies at the hands of a mysterious assassin. Therefore, Matrix 4 could have taken this event into account when developing its history.
