The trailer for Season 2 of “Altered Carbon” is out, and the long-awaited return of the Netflix series finds Takeshi Kovacs (Anthony Mackie replacing Joel Kinnaman) still searching for his long lost love, Quellcrist Falconer (Renée Elise Goldsberry). But it soon becomes clear that he doesn’t know her as well as he thought.
The premise of the sci-fi series, which aired its first season in 2018, is that society has been so radically transformed by new technology that consciousness can now be digitalized, human bodies are interchangeable, and death is no longer permanent, according to Netflix.
Watch the trailer for Season 2, which picks up 30 years after where we left off, above.
Here is the official description:
“Season Two begins 30 years after the epic conclusion of Season One, and finds Takeshi Kovacs (Mackie), the lone surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, continuing his centuries old quest to find his lost love Quellcrist Falconer (Goldsberry). After decades of planet-hopping and searching the galaxy, Kovacs is 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 series stars Mackie, Goldsberry, Lela Loren, Simone Missick, Conner, Dina Shihabi and Torben Liebrecht, while Will Yun Lee and James Saito play recurring characters.
“Altered Carbon” comes from Skydance Television and is executive produced by Alison Schapker, Laeta Kalogridis, James Middleton, Rose Lam, Bradley J. Fischer, James Vanderbilt, Mike Medavoy and Arnold W. Messer, alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross for Skydance.
