As per Netflix, in this season Kovacs continues to search for his long lost love Quellcrist Falconer. The search leads him to go to Harlan’s World, his home planet. He engages himself in investigating murders and later discovers all the hints turn towards Quellcrist. Now, Takeshi must rely on the new allies and AI Poe to find out about Quellcrist Falconer.
The upcoming season may portray gender fluidity with its body-swapping paradigm. As show creator, Laeta Kalogridis said, ‘LGBTQ and so many issues, how we feel comfortable or uncomfortable in our physical bodies. They are the things that I think to explore more but have not yet been able to do. Certainly, in the first season, we touched on it a little bit….but not too much’.
