Altered Carbon is an American cyberpunk web series created by Laeta Kalogridis and based on the 2002 novel of the same title by English author Richard K. Morgan. John G. Lenic is the producer of the series. The series had two seasons till yet, first season was premiered on February 2, 2018, with ten episodes, and the second season was aired on February 27, 2020, with eight number of episodes. Netflix is the original network for the broadcast of the series.
The series is basically set in the future, about 360 years after. The first season is set in the year 2384 in a metropolis known as Bay City. At that particular time, the life of a human is totally changed up to another level. Society is fully transformed and surrounded by technology. Death is no longer a permanent at that time, and human bodies are interchangeable. Takeshi Kovacs is a soldier who was the only survivor in a war, and his mind was imprisoned for centuries, and one day he was offered the chance to live again.
The cast and characters of the series are as Joel Kinnaman (season 1; flashbacks season 2), Anthony Mackie (season 2) as Takeshi “Tak” Kovacs, James Purefoy as Laurens Bancroft, Martha Higareda as Kristin Ortega, Chris Conner as Edgar Poe, Dichen Lachman (season 1; guest season 2) and Elizabeth Maxwell as Reileen Kawahara / Gina, Kovacs’ sister, Ato Essandoh as Vernon Elliot, Kristin Lehman as Miriam Bancroft and Naomi Bancroft, Laurens’ wife, Trieu Tran as Mister Leung / Ghostwalker.
Altered Carbon Season one and two were a great big hit and were positively responded from the audience, so the demand for the third season is obvious from the audience, but as of now, there are no affirmative announcements for the upcoming season from the makers or Netflix. We can expect its release soon with some of the major changes as the character of Kovacs is most expected to be changed to some other actor.
