Show is based on a series of books. First season was the first book. Broken Angels and Woken Furies Are the sequels. I never read them so no clue what their about but online they basically say it’s all new characters/sleeves and brand new plots 

For example, second book is 30 years after altered carbon but with Takeshi Kovac still as lead

That sounds promising, even with the potential of another actor playing Kovac.

Juz hoping they'll actually show how much more the technology & the world has changed & advanced after 30 years.

Unlike the 2nd BladeRunner where there seemed to be no advancement at all.

Well even with this show it was 200 years into the future from the flashbacks and seemed like nothing has changed. Guess that is the point I suppose, since we became immortal we stoped our own personal growth and society was collapsing onto itself. People were becoming bored and would do lots of the unethical and immoral choices

Yeah good point, great observation.

How immorality was a common thing was slightly disturbing.

How the daughter chose her mother's sleeve as a host with even the father/husband knowing was pure hedonistic.
