The series “Altered Carbon” will be interesting for those who love and understand science fiction combined with special effects, scenes of chase, fights and at the same time an exciting plot. Fans of the British science fiction writer Richard Morgan will appreciate this project, because it was on the basis of his eponymous book that the series was created. Despite the fact that the book was presented to the reader in 2002, it was not immediately possible to film it. But this does not mean that time has passed under the bridge, and the plot has become uninteresting. By no means. The theme of the space conquering, as well as the fantastic nuances of human abilities, are undoubtedly relevant and interesting in our day.
Premiere of the series – February 2, 2018 on the American channel Netflix.
Number of seasons – 1.
The number of episodes is 10.
Timing – 46-59 minutes.
Genre is science fiction.
Filming of the season 2 will begin in September – October 2018, and the first episodes of the series “Altered Carbon Season 2” will only be seen on February 27, 2020.
2384 year. Mankind could to some extent make itself immortal. It became possible to transfer the consciousness of a person to specialized carriers. If necessary, it could be placed in any chosen body from the past. But, as in the real world, these goods could only be used by powerful and wealthy people. The protagonist Takeshi Kovacs is a military special forces soldier who died many years ago. It was he who was chosen by the billionaire Lawrence Bancroft to carry out a serious task: it is necessary to find the murderer, who lost the life of the billionaire himself, despite the fact that the case was closed, like suicide. Having power, billionaire Bancroft forces Kovacs to carry out the assignment, because he is confident that this particular fighter will be able to learn everything. Lieutenant Ortega will help Kovacs in everything.
Immediately it is worth saying that none of its creators have yet announced the continuation of the series. But we note that the writer, who for some reason was not as popular in Russia as in the West, published a trilogy about the adventures of the protagonist Takeshi Kovacs. So, the 2 nd book of the writer was published in 2003 and was called “Broken Angels”. I think that many will agree that we still should expect the screening of the second part of the trilogy, and already in the near future.
In this season, the main character Takeshi Kovacs is the captain of a hired organization, considered one of the most invincible and powerful. Earth archaeologists are gradually discovering newer and newer Stargates, which are portals that allow you to instantly move to the outer zone of the Galaxy. The Kovacs Group is hired to ensure security while following the next found Gate. In addition to delivering to the site, the Gate needs to be decrypted and activated. But, the difficulty is that they are constantly surrounded by other groups that have their own selfish goals. Having a cynical and frightening nature, it is not known how the former soldier Takeshi Kovacs will behave in this task.
The third book of Richard Morgan, released in 2005, is called “Woken Furies”. It talks about the early years of the life of the main character Kovacs. What brought him to the special forces, and why he became such a ruthless and cold-blooded soldier? All this we learn from the third season.
