“Altered Carbon” is an American cyberpunk science- fiction web television series created by Laeta Kalogridis and is based on the 2002 novel of the same title by English author, Richard K. Morgan. This popular series premiered on Netflix on February 2, 2018. Miguel Sapochnik directed the Pilot episode. According to reports, this series is based on Morgans’ cyberpunk series book, “Broken Angels”.
What did we see so far?
The story is based 300 years in the future where the society has been transformed by modern science and technology.
The first season revolves around Takeshi Koncas, the lone surviving soldier in a pack of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world. His mind was trapped in ice for years until an impossibly wealthy businessman, Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again in return for solving a murder case.
Has it been renewed for season 2?
Being the most expensive Netflix series and with excellent reviews, how can it not be renewed?
The second series will be based on Morgans’ second cyberpunk book, ” Broken Angels” . The series began filming in February, 2019. We can expect it to hit the screens sometime around the first half of 2020.
What can we expect in the second segment?
As the first series was not totally an adaptation of Morgan’s book, we cannot expect the second season to be completely based on the book. The story in the second book is set 30 years after the end of the story in the first book.
If the series work according to the book, we may find Kovacs working for a mercenary organization called Carrera’s Wedge, where, he is tasked with searching for a Martian artifact that can open a channel to another dimension.
Season 2 is much weirder than it seems!!
Who are the cast members in season 2?
According to reports, the cast has some alternations. Takeshi Kovacs, played by Joel Kinnaman in Season 1 will be played by Anthony Mackie in the second season.
Some other cast members renewed are: Renee Elise Goldsberry as Quellchrist Falconer and Chris Covner as Poe. Simmon Missick as Trepp, a bounty hunter, Diva Shihabi as DIG 301, Torben Liebrecht as Colonel Ivan Carrera. Lela Loren will join the cast as Danica Harlan, the charismatic governor of Harlan’s world.
