Early next year, Netflix will be premiering a new series dubbed Altered Carbon. The sci-fi program is set in a futuristic universe where consciousness can be transferred into a new body, thus making death nothing but an inconvenience.
Thanks to such technological advances, the human mind can now be digitized and downloaded into a “cortical stack,” then placed into new bodies referred to as sleeves.
Altered Carbon stars Joel Kinnaman, who plays Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs. Kovacs has been brought to life centuries after his death in order to investigate the attempted murder of Laurens Bancroft (played by James Purefoy), the wealthiest man on Earth.
For your first look at Altered Carbon, due out on Netflix February 2, 2018, press play above.
