Altered Carbon Season 2 is taking too long to be back at our screens. Fans are eagerly waiting to watch more of the highly-acclaimed series. Netflix is making significant changes in the plot and cast this time. Moreover, the story of the show is taking new turns. As of now, here’s everything we know about the upcoming installment. However, be aware. Major Spoilers Ahead!
Netflix’s sci-fi show takes us to a futuristic San Francisco named Bay City. The series takes place over 360 years later in 2384, where a man’s recalls can be efficiently tampered with and renewed. Topped with amazing special effects and direction, the story of the series gets more and more fascinating with every passing episode. The plot rotates around the phenomenon of an artificial body called a “sleeve” dies, and his or her “stack” can be carried to new bodies. This theoretically indicates that one can live permanently.
Altered Carbon Season 2: Renewal & Production Status
The response to Laeta Kalogridis’ Altered Carbon was pretty huge back around its February 2018 debut. Millions of fans around the globe were demanding a second season. Hence, Netflix had to give them a green flag. It sure made us wait for a while but eventually gave us the renewal by July 2018.
Productions for Altered Carbon Season 2 were stretched until the next year. The new cast members began filming with some of the known faces from Season 1 back in February 2019. Some of them shared pictures from the set in Vancouver. Since the series has to undergo much work related to special effects, it may take time to be back on our Netflix screens.
What Will Happen In The Latest Season?
Based on Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 cyberpunk fiction, the TV series with the same name has a strong concept to give us. The initial plot twirled around prisoner Takeshi Kovacs, who reverts to life in a new body after 250 years below the ice. In order to win his freedom, he has to solve a suspenseful murder.
Netflix is yet to give us any hints about the plot of Altered Carbon Season 2. However, we expect it to follow the events of the first installment. The second season is expected to pick up from 30 years later and includes corporate wars on alien planets and Martian artifacts that reveal portals to outer space.
Brand New Cast Of Altered Carbon Season 2
Netflix has decided to change a large section of the regular cast of the show. One of the major changes includes the lead actor, Joel Kinnaman, being replaced by Anthony Mackie. Popular for his Avenger movies, the star will now play the protagonist Takeshi Kovacs.
Other than Mackie, we’ll also see some other new faces, which include, Simone Missick as Trepp, Dina Shihabi as Dig 301, and Torben Liebrecht as Colonel Ivan Carrera.
