Netflix has announced that your re-sleeving will soon be complete when the second season of ALTERED CARBON premieres on the streamer this February 27, 2020.
When ALTERED CARBON returns to Netflix, THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER star Anthony Mackie will replace Joel Kinnaman for the new batch of episodes. Kinnaman played Takeshi Kovacs throughout the first season, a former Envoy intelligence operative able to adapt quickly to new bodies and environments.
You can read Netflix’s official plot synopsis for ALTERED CARBON Season 2 below:
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?

The events of ALTERED CARBON are based on ideas from Richard K.
