Now Playing: Altered Carbon - Season 2 Official Cast Announcement Trailer

After a few clicks on the keyboard, the Psychasec inventory is opened, revealing the cast. Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War) will play Takeshi Kovacs--played by Joel Kinnamon in Season 1--Simone Missick (Luke Cage) will play Trepp, Dina Shihabi (Jack Ryan) will play Dig 301, Torben Liebrecht will play Colonel Ivan Carrera, James Saito (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will play Tanaseda Hideki, Renée Elise Goldsberry returns as Quellcrist Falconer, and Chris Conner returns as Poe.

Everything in the video looks pretty normal, up until Poe's slide, where next to "Inventory" it reads "Error." In all the rest of the cast slides, that read "Unavailable." Additionally, instead of "Sleeve" and "Stack" above the actor and character's names, it reads "A.I" for both sections on Poe. This should give a few clues away considering where Season 1 left off.

In GameSpot's Season 1 review, Mike Rougeau said, "Altered Carbon never shies from examining exactly how an invention like the cortical stack would change our reality, and this future society appears far different from our own. Yet in many ways, it's really exactly the same--which is more or less the prime directive of great science fiction."

Season 2 of Altered Carbon is now in production with no set release date at this time.
