What will Season 2 look like?
We've got some guesses! But just as the first season wasn't an entirely faithful adaptation of Morgan's novel, the second would likely be another loose adaptation. Next in Morgan's Kovacs series is Broken Angels, the synopsis of which teases what could be a much bigger, completely different show: "Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-UN envoy turned private eye, has changed careers, and bodies, once more... trading sleuthing for soldiering as a warrior-for-hire, and helping a far-flung planet's government put down a bloody revolution.”
Broken Angels is set 30 years after the events of the first book, and finds Kovacs working for a mercenary organization called Carrera’s Wedge. He’s tasked with searching for a Martian artifact that can open a portal to another dimension. If Season 2 follows the book, expect things to get even weirder than they were the first time around.
According to Kalogridis, the intent for Season 2 is to get out of Bay City and onto different planets. She hopes to dig into needlecasting, or the ability to engage in faster-than-light travel via conscious projecting and downloading. "That's just too cool not to do something with," Kalogridis said.
