Netflix has finally announced when “Altered Carbon” Season 2 is hitting and fans should start getting excited because it’s coming sooner than they think. While a teaser or promo still remains on the horizon, the cyberpunk epic’s sophomore season is coming just next month.

Season 2 of “Altered Carbon” will contain 8 episodes and will star Anthony Mackie as protagonist Takashi Kovac. The season will be able to be viewed in its entirety on Thursday, Feb. 27 according to IGN.

The plot of season 2 follows sometime after season 1, where Kovac has searched for his long-lost love and commander Quellcrist Falconer (Renée Elise Goldsberry) from planet to planet. He eventually ends up on Harlan’s World, his home planet, where the events of season 1 intertwine with his new objective as one giant conspiracy.
