Netflix’s ‘Altered Carbon’ Season 2 Sets Anthony Mackie As The New Kovacs

Aug 1, 2018

Omega Underground first reported that Alter Carbon‘s second season would begin filming sometime this October in Vancouver.

Now, Netflix as announced that Avengers actor Anthony Mackie will be taking over the Takeshi Kovacs role previously played by Joel Kinnaman.

An intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned – on ice – for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself.

It’s expected that the second season will drop sometime in 2019.
