The first season of Altered Carbon made the headlines when it was released last year. The show was one of the most lauded shows that were released last year. The fans were expecting the show to release its second season after a year from the release of its first season. However, it seems that they will have to wait longer for the second season.
There have been no updates regarding the update of the second season of Altered Carbon. The show was released on Netflix on February 2, 2018. Altered Carbon was renewed for a second season in July 2018. The filming for the second season started in February 2019. So, this clearly means that the release of the second season is pretty far away.
Altered Carbon is a large scale production, and it has been reported that the show had a bigger budget than the first three seasons of Game of Thrones. The series was ordered by Netflix in January 2016, and it wasn’t released until February 2018. With all of this in mind, it seems that we won’t get the new season until 2020.
Moving on to the cast of the second season. We will see some new people being added which includes the change in the lead. Here is the cast of the second season of Altered Carbon:
Anthony Mackie as Takeshi Kovacs / Elias Ryker
Simone Missick as Trepp
Dina Shihabi as Dig 301
Torben Liebrecht as Colonel Ivan Carrera
James Saito as Tanaseda Hideki
No major news has been released about the story of the second season. The show is based in the future, and it shows that a person’s consciousness can be transferred to another body. So if any of you had been wondering why Anthony Mackie has taken over the lead role, it’s due to this reason.
The show is based on the trilogy of novels by Richard K Morgan. The second season is expected to take content from the second book, Broken Angels.
