Netflix has revealed the season 2 cast of the dystopian science fiction TV series, Altered Carbon, with a rather strange video.
The list of talented actors joining the series includes Anthony Mackie, Simone Missick, Dina Shihabi, Torben Liebrecht, James Saito, Renee Elise Goldsberry, and Chris Conner.
For those unfamiliar with season one, here’s a quick synopsis of the series:
The series takes place over 360 years in the future, with most episodes set in the year 2384, in a futuristic San Francisco known as Bay City. In the future, a person’s memories and consciousness can be decanted in a disk-shaped device called a cortical stack, which is implanted in the vertebrae at the back of the neck. These storage devices are of alien design and have been reverse engineered and mass produced. Physical human or synthetic bodies are called “sleeves” and stacks can be transferred to new bodies after death, but a person can still be killed if their stack is destroyed. While this theoretically means anyone can live forever, only the wealthiest, known as “Meths” in reference to Methuselah, have the means to do so through clones and remote storage of their consciousness in satellites
