Really liked Altered Carbon series too and never read the books or heard of it before the show.
The problem is (not that I pretend to speak for everyone) most of us get attachment to characters of a series. Altered Carbon is going to have a all new cast (with a couple of hold overs?) each season. I can't think of a single series, that's ever done it successfully. Worst, afaik each time it's been tried it's failed, so I don't hold out much hope. The most recent I can think of was True Detective.
People in the Altered Carbon universe are digital human freight, the sleeve is immaterial* (think the same person in a different body). If the story is good, the show should be good.
*Getting a decked out sleeve is nice but an envoy in an unaugmented body will still have their most feared feature, mental conditioning. Of course you could get a synthetic sleeve but things never taste right.
Actually there was a big backlash about changing actors in season 2 and it didn't get as good rating. Now for season 3 they are bring back the some or most of the actors from season 1, iirc.
Yeah, it's just most people don't know there's going to be an all new cast. There's been several discussions on the reddit (official?) forums. The point is there's no successful show that changes their full (most) cast each season, unless I'm forgetting one?
The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.
