ANTHONY MACKIE is TAKESHI KOVACS: A former Protectorate CTAC soldier who became a revolutionary Envoy, and then a mercenary for hire, Kovacs swears allegiance to no man or woman except one: Quellcrist Falconer. His undying quest to reconnect with her spans multiple centuries, planets and sleeves.

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY as QUELLCRIST FALCONER: A fierce revolutionary leader with a deep bond to Takeshi Kovacs, Quell is driven by her desire to reset the balance between life and death.

CHRIS CONNER as POE: A centuries-old, highly-evolved A.I. and loyal companion to Takeshi Kovacs, Poe strives to understand what it means to be human.

SIMONE MISSICK is TREPP: An expert bounty hunter, Trepp is known for her ability to track down anyone in the Settled Worlds, for the right price.

DINA SHIHABI is DIG 301: An out-of-work A.I. programmed to assist human archeologists, Dig finds a new purpose when she meets Poe.

TORBEN LIEBRECHT as COLONEL IVAN CARRERA: The dogged leader of a Protectorate Special Forces unit known as the “Wedge,” Colonel Carrera is on the hunt for Takeshi Kovacs.

JAMES SAITO is TANASEDA HIDEKI: A centuries-old Yakuza boss, Tanaseda controls organized crime on the planet of Harlan’s World and shares a history with Takeshi Kovacs.

The second season will consist of eight episodes. In the world of Altered Carbon, the journey of Takeshi Kovacs spans hundreds of years, many different bodies, and planets. This allows the story to explore themes of identity, mortality, and the human soul. In this new season, Anthony Mackie will be the new embodiment of Kovacs, as the series continues to expand on these deeper themes and ideas across longer periods of times and different worlds throughout the universe.

The series is based on the classic science fiction novels by Richard K. Morgan. Laeta Kalogridis will return as co-showrunner and executive producer. Alison Schapker joins the series as co-showrunner and will also serve as an executive producer. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will executive produce for Skydance. James Middleton (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), will serve as an executive producer.
