Earlier this year Netflix finally announced the release date of Altered Carbon‘s highly-anticipated second season, which is slated to drop at the end of this month. Now the streaming giant has finally shared the show’s first teaser trailer which spotlights Anthony Mackie, known for his role in Captain America, as the leading character.

Mackie will now portray Takeshi Kovacs — taking over from Season 1’s Joel Kinnaman. Altered Carbon originally aired in February 2018, and gives off similar vibes to Ghost in the Shell. The cyberpunk series takes a look 350 years into the future, where humans have been reduced to storage devices while the consciousness can be transferred from body to body. One part dystopian sci-fi, one part detective thriller, Altered Carbon will definitely pique the interest of many.

The new season will also introduce Lela Loren (Power) as Danica Harlan, governor of Harlan’s World; Simone Missick (All Rise) as Trepp, a bounty hunter; James Saito (The Terror) as Tanaseda Hideki, a centuries-old organized crime boss with a ton of influence on Harlan’s World; and Dina Shihabi (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) as DIG 301, an artificial intelligence designed to assist archaeologists. Returning cast members include Chris Conner, who plays hospitality AI Poe, and Renee Elise Goldsberry, who plays Kovacs’ long-lost love/revolutionary Quellcrist Falconer.

All new eight episodes of Altered Carbon season 2 lands on Netflix February 27.
