Less than a week ago Netflix released a teaser of the second season of Altered Carbon second season teaser, which was scheduled for February 27. Today, the sevice published a full, two-minute trailer for the upcoming eight-part series. It should give us a foretaste of what will be waiting for lovers of the cyberpunk show based on Richard K. Morgan's books.
Let's add that the premiere of the first season took place almost exactly two years ago. Since then, Altered Carbon has gathered a lot of fans all over the world. It encouraged Netflix to announce further television projects taking place in this universe. Apart from the second season of the live-actions series, there will also be an animated series in the near future. Its director is Dai Sato, who previously worked on such acclaimed anime as Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eureka Seven, Cowboy Bebop or Ergo Proxy. The French studio Anima will be responsible for the animation of the project.
The action of the second season of Altered Carbon takes place decades after Kovacs and his companions solved the mystery of Laurens Bancroft's murder. The protagonist and former soldier of an elite interstellar unit, already in a new shell (played by Anthony Mackie), will return to his home planet, Harlan's World, to find his beloved, Quellcrist Falconer. However, this will not be an easy task, as the hero's complicated past will be back to haunt him. Fortunately, he will also meet old friends and allies like AI named Poe. Let's recall that the showrunner of Altered Carbon season two is Alison Schapker, who replaced Laeta Kalogridis in 2018. Apart from Anthony Mackie, the new episodes will feature Simone Missick, James Saito, Lela Loren, Dina Shihabi, Torben Liebrecht, Chris Conner and Renée Elise.
