The second season of Netflix’s big-budget cyberpunk noir series Altered Carbon – which swaps Joel Kinnaman for Anthony Mackie – will hit the streaming giant on February 27th.
A brief teaser video was released on Twitter. Check it out below.
Altered Carbon is based on Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk noir novel of the same name and takes place more than 300 years in the future, where society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until impossibly wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again. Kovacs will have to do something for Bancroft, though, if he wants to be resurrected. Bancroft’s request of Kovacs is to solve a murder — Bancroft’s.
Joel Kinnaman (Robocop, Suicide Squad) starred in season one as Takeshi Kovacs, while Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) will now play the character in “a different sleeve” for season 2.
Other cast members include Simone Missick (Luke Cage) as Trepp, Lela Loren (Power) as Danica Harlan, Dina Shihabi (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) as Dig 301, Torben Liebrecht (Homeland) as Colonel Ivan Carrera, James Saito (The Terror) as Tanaseda Hideki, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Quellcrist Falconer and Chris Connor as Poe.
