Just six months after season one of Altered Carbon was released on Netflix, the announcement has been made that the hit sci-fi show will be renewed for a second season!
There are some big changes ahead…including a new lead actor, Anthony Mackie. Mackie has been cast as Takeshi Kovacs, previously played by Joel Kinnaman.

Altered Carbon (season two) will continue to delve into the sci-fi world, which spans hundreds of years across numerous time frames. The new season will continue to delve into the realms of mortality and explore the ideas of the human soul and identity.
Are you ready for the new Kovacs?
Joel did a fantastic job. I feel like watching #AlteredCarbon all over again but it'll be tough knowing what happens. One of the best things was watching it unravel. I truly hope season 2 carries the same dark, cyberpunk aesthetic of the first.— Another UK Voice (@AnotherUKVoice) July 28, 2018
