Kinnaman’s handle Netflix for their sci-fi series was supposedly for one year, and the guy’s got ta consume! Plus, the essence of Altered Carbon has to do with altering “sleeves” (bodies), like how Kinnaman’s character Takeshi Kovacs started (and is displayed in flashbacks) as Will Yun Lee, who handled the sleeve of a framed law enforcement officer in the hopes of continuing his mission to capture a killer.

In the Richard K. Morgan books on which the series is based, Kovacs lives in a range of various sleeves/bodies of various ethnic backgrounds in time. While Netflix has actually not yet restored the series, Kinnaman informed TELEVISION Guide just recently that Season 2 was constantly not likely to include him:


“We have no idea what the second season would be, but my guess is that they would follow the two other books, and they are all on completely different planets, completely different worlds, and my guess is — and I don’t know — my guess is that it’s sort of going to be an anthology show where maybe a couple of the characters continue into the next season. But no one knows what’s going on in the second season.”

Meanwhile, the Hanna series will be penned by David Farr, who co-wrote the initial motion picture and likewise adjusted John Le Carre‘s exceptional The Night Manager miniseries for AMC. In a declaration about his brand-new series, Farr stated that:

“I’m thrilled that Hanna has managed to attract a visionary director and actors of the calibre of Mireille and Joel to play our adult leads. And in Esme Creed-Miles I believe we have discovered a star of the future – she is going to be a very special Hanna. Hanna aims to be both a raw-knuckle ride and a deeply touching family drama. It has the visceral excitement of a genuine conspiracy thriller but also the simple humanity of a rites of passage drama. Hanna is in a very unusual family. She’s a very special teenager. But all teenagers think they’re abnormal. She’s just a little more abnormal than most.”
