The sci-fi hit is returning to Netflix with a new cast – that includes Anthony Mackie – to continue the story of Takeshi Kovacs.
This appeared on social media this morning after almost a year of silence:

Netflix also shared a plot summary with the teaser. We’ll be learning more about the lead character’s past as he investigates another case.
Season 2 of the sophisticated and compelling sci-fi drama finds Takeshi Kovacs, the lone surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, continuing his centuries-old quest to find his lost love Quellcrist Falconer.
After decades of planet-hopping and searching the galaxy, Kovacs finds himself 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, Kovacs must now partner with new allies to outwit his enemies and find the truth: Who is Quellcrist Falconer?
The last transmission back in February of last year revealed the cast, and it includes some big and familiar names. MCU star Anthony Mackie is taking Joel Kinnaman’s place as Takeshi Kovacs, and Chris Conner is back as the A.I. Poe and Renée Elise Goldsberry returns as Quellcrist Falconer.

The first season had its problems, but it was entertaining and different in a landscape of super heroes and family friendly sci-fi. I’m on board for the next chapter.
Altered Carbon Season 2 drops on Netflix February 27th.
