Anthony Mackie Taking Over Lead Role In New Season Of ‘Altered Carbon’ On Netflix

Hollywood, Hollywood News

Netflix’s futuristic sci-fi drama Altered Carbon has been renewed for a second season, with Anthony Mackie taking over the lead role of Takeshi Kovacs from Joel Kinnaman.

The show, based on the novels by Richard K. Morgan, focuses on Kovacs, a former elite soldier called an Envoy who has reawakened hundreds of years in a new body and is tapped to solve a murder. Mackie’s portrayal of Kovacs will play on this theme as the character continues to discover the depths of the human condition.

Reportedly, most of the cast, including Kinnaman only had one-year deals.

Also joining the series this season is Alison Schapker as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Season 1 showrunner (and creator/executive producer) Laeta Kalogridis.

Mackie is best known for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Falcon. He can also be seen in the upcoming film adaptation of The Hate You Give.
