Altered Carbon Gets A Season 2 Order

Season One was a nice surprise so looking forward to this.

 

NETFLIX RENEWS ALTERED CARBON FOR A SECOND SEASON

ANTHONY MACKIE TO STAR AS TAKESHI KOVACS

We kindly ask that you link to www.netflix.com/alteredcarbon in your coverage

  • Netflix has ordered eight additional episodes of Altered Carbon from Skydance Television.

  • The series is based on the classic science fiction novels by Richard K. Morgan.

  • Anthony Mackie (Captain America series, Detroit)  will star as Takeshi Kovacs

  • Laeta Kalogridis will return as co-showrunner and executive producer.

  • Alison Schapker joins the series as co-showrunner and will also serve as an executive producer.

  • David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will executive produce for Skydance.

  • James Middleton (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), will serve as an executive producer.

For those unfamiliar with the world of Altered Carbon, I also wanted to share the below as background on how different actors can play the same character in different seasons:
In the world of Altered Carbon, the journey of Takeshi Kovacs spans hundreds of years, many different bodies, and planets.  This allows the story to explore themes of identity, mortality, and the human soul.  In this new season, Anthony Mackie will be the new embodiment of Kovacs, as the series continues to expand on these deeper themes and ideas across longer periods of times and different worlds throughout the universe.
