With two weeks to release, Netflix has unveiled a full-length trailer for Altered Carbon season 2, which finds Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) taking over from Joel Kinnaman in the lead as Takeshi Kovacs, an elite soldier who's the last member of a long-lost rebel group. The new Altered Carbon season 2 trailer introduces that change, amidst other ones.
Kovacs is on a new planet called Harlan's world `right back where we started,` he says where he's looking for his former love. Soon, the whole planet is looking for him. The trailer is full of action sequences, which season 1 was never short on. It remains to be seen if the storytelling will be improved.
New showrunner Alison Schapker (Alias, Fringe) has taken over from creator and showrunner Laeta Kalogridis, who remains attached as an executive producer and writer. Unlike the 10 episodes in season 1, Altered Carbon season 2 has 8 episodes and will likely be based on the events of Broken Angels, the second of three books from English author Richard K. Morgan.
When a job brings Takeshi Kovacs back to Harlan's World in a new sleeve, he finds the planet at war and his long-lost love lurking in the shadows.
The past is haunting you. Anthony Mackie is Takeshi Kovacs in Season 2 of Altered Carbon, streaming February 27.
