Finished this as well.  Grand concept but less than grand execution is my opinion. The tit-fest kept me glued though ;).

Anthony Mackie, who plays the Falcon in the Avengers movies, will take over the Takeshi Kovacs role in season 2 of Altered Carbon, while Alison Schapker (Lost, Fringe) is joining the series as co-showrunner and will also serve as an executive producer. Season 1 boss Laeta Kalogridis will return as co-showrunner and executive producer.

Netflix also stated in their press announcement, "The journey of Takeshi Kovacs spans hundreds of years, many different bodies, and planets. This allows the story to explore themes of identity, mortality, and the human soul. In this new season, Anthony Mackie will be the new embodiment of Kovacs, as the series continues to expand on these deeper themes and ideas across longer periods of times and different worlds throughout the universe."

Netflix is developing an Altered Carbon anime feature, set in the same universe of the live-action sci-fi series, which will explore new elements of the story mythology. Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) and Tsukasa Kondo will be penning the script.
