Netflix has renewed their sci-fi action-drama series, “Altered Carbon,” for a season 2 and to sweeten the pie Anthony Mackie will star in the leading role of Takeshi Kovacs.
In the first season of the series, my fave Joel Kinnaman starred in the leading role.
The change up in the show’s main character is not unexpected given that it takes place In a futuristic world where the human mind has been digitized and a person can transfer their consciousness from one body to the next. The series is based on the science fiction novels written by Richard K. Morgan.
In addition, Laeta Kalogridis will return as showrunner and executive producer, with Alison Schapker joining the series as co-showrunner and executive producer. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will executive produce for Skydance Television. James Middleton will also serve as an executive producer.
Oh, I’m excited about this and I will keep you posted as more scoop becomes available.
