Netflix’s next season of the sci-fi cyberpunk Altered Carbon begins next month; on the 27th.
Anthony Mackie, perhaps best known for his role as Falcon in the MCU’s Avengers series, will replace Joel Kinnaman. The fact that the lead actor has changed makes perfect sense in the story, as the main character, Takeshi Kovacs, is ‘resleeved’ into a brand new body.
The teaser video came via the Altered Carbon Twitter account but soon made its way onto YouTube.
The casting for season 2 is interesting; Renee Elise Goldsberry returns as Quellcrist Falconer as does Chris Conner as the A.I. Poe.
Netflix tells us;
Season 2 of the sophisticated and compelling sci-fi drama finds Takeshi Kovacs, the lone surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, continuing his centuries-old quest to find his lost love Quellcrist Falconer.
After decades of planet-hopping and searching the galaxy, Kovacs finds himself recruited back to his home planet of Harlan’s World with the promise of finding Quell. Haunted by his past and responsible for investigating a series of brutal murders, Kovacs is stunned to discover his new mission to solve the crime and his pursuit to find Quell are one and the same. With the help of his loyal A.I. Poe, Kovacs must now partner with new allies to outwit his enemies and find the truth: Who is Quellcrist Falconer?
