Why? Well, the universe that the series takes place within was originally created by author Richard K. Morgan. Within this world, taking place hundreds of years in the future, people live in “sleeves” aka bodies that are not theirs. Kinnaman’s body was just a “sleeve” for the character, who has gone through many skins throughout his few hundreds of years of existing. To maintain the premise and idea of the show, Kinnaman knew that being brought back on was unlikely as the second season would feature a new sleeve aka a new actor.
The new actor being Avengers: Infinity War’s Anthony Mackie. Now we are learning that production on the next season for this cyberpunk show will pick up in February of 2019. There’s not a whole lot of the storyline revealed, as series creator Laeta Kalogridis had previously stated that since Morgan’s second book reads like a “$300-million dollar film” that it was likely they’d go in a different direction. The special effects for the first season were already impressive and it was one of the successful cyberpunk project to be released that year, so I have no doubt that season two will be impressive as well.
For your Kinnaman fix, his series Hanna will be premiering on Amazon Prime in 2019. You can also catch up on the first season, available right now on Netflix.
