Altered Carbon returns to Netflix for a second season later this month, but it comes with an all new lead and a bunch of new faces joining the cast. Netflix’s compelling and sophisticated sci-fi drama now stars Anthony Mackie as Takeshi Kovacs, replacing Joel Kinnaman as Kovacs’ new sleeve. Returning cast members and characters include Renée Elise Goldsberry as Quellcrist Falconer and Chris Conner as Poe.
Also joining the cast this season are Simone Missick as Trepp; Dina Shihabi as Dig 301, Torben Liebrecht as Colonel Carrera; and James Saito is Tanaseda Hideki; there’s much more on all of them below, a few of whom are teased in the season’s first trailer. Fingers crossed we also hear more on the animated spin-off series as we head to the Season 2 release this February 27th. Add the series to your watch list today!
