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.
Good point, I must have misunderstood their "producer" roles. Wonder if it was to help the series with their name recognition.
Still pretty comfortable saying there's been no successful series who changes cast each season. Season two has an average rating of 6/10 compared to season one's 8/10. Even if you counted True Detective despite it's poor season 2, it's only single series out of hundreds, if not thousands that relied on a single cast. At least imo, there are a vast majority of viewers who don't know there's going to be a completely new cast next season.
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.
