The popular Netflix series, Altered Carbon, is coming back with the second season, and this time, it is going to elevate with developments in cast and plot.
Altered Carbon is a twenty third-century cyberpunk based on a novel with the same title written by English author Richard Morgan in 2002. This television web series is packed with the futuristic plot in which we see how digitalised consciousness and humans’ souls and minds can be transferred or ‘re-sleeved’ into an artificial body after physical death. So the plot revolves around the humans reaching the level of immortality and the thrill that follows.
Altered Carbon Season 2: Release Date
The first season of Altered Carbon premiered on February 2, 2018. And since then it has already been a long time. The shooting for the second season started in February 2019, and it got wrapped up in June. Now that Netflix has finally announced its comeback, and we can watch this show finally after two years, in February 2020.
Altered Carbon Season 2: Cast
We can safely expect some changes with the show’s cast. At the end of the first season, we saw that Takeshi Kovacs gave back Joel Kinnaman-looking’ sleeve’. After which he left in search of his lost lover Falconer. As we have also noticed that in this twisty sci-fi where human minds keep uploading in sleeves of different ages, genders, or races, which leaves room for re-casting to happen in the show. Thus, Anthony Mackie is going to replace Joel Kinnaman for the role of Takeshi Kovacs in season two. The second season will also introduce some new faces, including Simone Missick, Torben Liebrecht, Dina Shihabi, and possibly more.
Altered Carbon Season 2: Plot
There hasn’t been much disclosure about the plot of the second season. But still, we are guessing that the story will probably follow the Takeshi Kovacs looking for his love Falconer. We are expecting that this season will not be as excellent as the adaptation of the first novel. There are some expectations about the season two adapting Richard K. Morgan’s second book Broken Angels, which is, basically, thirty years ahead of the first book, and it also involves another planet and uplifted mishaps.
That is all so far. The author Richard Morgan has stated that there is a scope for this series containing five-season if the show runs well. But for now, we are only aiming to watch more misadventures of Takeshi Kovacs.
