After decades of planet-hopping and searching the galaxy, Kovacs finds himself recruited back to his home planet of Harlan’s World with the promise of finding Quell. Haunted by his past and responsible for investigating a series of brutal murders, Kovacs is stunned to discover his new mission to solve the crime and his pursuit to find Quell are one and the same. With the help of his loyal AI Poe, Kovacs must now partner with new allies to outwit his enemies and find the truth: Who is Quellcrist Falconer?
The S2 trailer opens with Kovacs awakening in his new body: a very pricey, military-grade bioware body with rapid healing capabilities, among other enhancements, courtesy of a new wealthy benefactor in need of his particular set of skills. “I crossed the stars in a colony ship before stacks were invented,” we hear said benefactor declare in a voiceover. “Left a dying Earth behind to seed a new world. Mr. Kovacs, I know what you dream of.” That would be Quell, of course, although we see Yakuza boss Tanaseda Hideki (James Saito, Eli Stone warn, “That’s not love. It’s obsession. In time, even love turns to dust.”
We get a brief glimpse of Quell in the trailer, as well as Kovacs’ original body (or a pricey clone, played by Will Yun Lee), now inhabited by someone else’s stack. He seems to have new adversaries in the planetary governor, Danica Harlan (Lela Loren,
Power, and Colonel Ivan Carrera (Torben Liebrecht, X Company , head of a special forces unit called the “Wedge.” Carrera is hunting for Kovacs at the governor’s request. (Carrera is actually a character from Morgan’s second Kovacs novel, Broken Angels
. “I can destroy you so utterly nothing will be left,” Carrera growls, to which Kovacs responds, “I’ve heard that one before.” Our money’s on Kovacs.
