In Netflix's new sci-fi series Altered Carbon, human consciousness is transferred between bodies, meaning bodies are merely shed like a snake does its skin. Ahead of the program's early February premiere, the streaming service has unleashed the official Altered Carbon trailer.

We in turn find that ex-Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs (played by Joel Kinnaman) has been brought back to life after 250 years, courtesy of the richest man on Earth, Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy). Bancroft then wants Kovacs to solve his attempted murder, awarding the former solider another shot at life. But if he doesn't figure things out quickly enough, he will be terminated.

Based around Richard K. Morgan’s novel of the same name, Altered Carbon lands on Netflix February 2.

In related news, new Netflix show 'The End of the Fucking World' has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
