Sadie Gennis

Two years after Altered Carbonpremiered, Season 2 of the cyberpunk drama is finally available to stream. The eight-episode second season was released on Netflix on Thursday, Feb. 27.

Anthony Mackie has taken over the role of Takeshi Kovacs from Joel Kinnaman in Season 2. The new episodes also feature the returns of Will Yun Lee, who played the original sleeve of Takeshi Kovacs and will return in an unknown role; Renée Elise Goldsberry, who plays Envoy leader and Kovacs' love interest Quell; and Chris Conner, who plays the A.I. hologram Poe.

Season 2 will find Kovacs returning to his home planet, Harlan's World, where he'll learn that the spate of recent killings he's investigating and his quest to find Quell are the actually the same mission. And when Kovacs does finally find Quell, the much anticipated reunion won't exactly go as the former mercenary had imagined.
