In this futuristic world, you can live like an immortal (if you have enough money) by having your digitized consciousness or “cortical stack” put into another host body, called a sleeve.
The new teaser for the second season of doesn’t give up much on the plot but we know Kovacs is on a quest to find someone he thought was dead: creator of stack technology, leader of the Uprising, and his former love, Quellcrist Falconer (such a badass name). You get to see Anthony Mackie as Kovacs in the teaser and hear him say the following ominous words.
This is a ghost story.
Technology has conquered death.
But with endless future comes endless past.
We are trailed by specters. They cling to us like shadows.
But if you chase after your ghosts, you just might become one.
