Anthony Mackie plays the new sleeve of Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman was the previous sleeve in s1) in a chapter that finds the interstellar warrior back on his home planet of Harlan’s World, still on his mission to find his love, Quell. Well, as the trailer below shows, it appears that he does, although of course there’s a lot that’s going to ensure they can’t just ride off into the sunset. The trailer also unveils a big turn: Someone arises in Kovacs’ sleeve… or is it that his stack been duplicated?
Can’t wait for this. Altered Carbon season 2, with Chris Conner back as Kovacs’ loyal A.I. buddy, Poe, and a cast that includes Lela Loren, Simone Missick, Chris Conner, Dina Shihabi and Torben Liebrecht, hits Netflix on February 27.
Official synopsis for Altered Carbon season 2:
Altered Carbon takes place over 300 years in the future in a society transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent.
Season Two of the sophisticated and compelling sci-fi drama finds Takeshi Kovacs (Anthony Mackie), the lone surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, continuing his centuries old quest to find his lost love Quellcrist Falconer (Renée Elise Goldsberry). 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 (Chris Conner), Kovacs must now partner with new allies to outwit his enemies and find the truth: Who is Quellcrist Falconer?
