If for some reason you’ve run out of shows to watch, which honestly is next to impossible, then good news if coming your way in the form of Netflix’s first original Sci-Fi series, Altered Carbon! If you’ve read the novel, you know that this is surely one to look out for! Check out the announcement trailer below!
Based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder… that of Bancroft himself.
Altered Carbon launches on Netflix on February 2, 2018! It’s quite a wait but we don’t mind, we’ve still got tons to watch on Netflix to keep us busy during the holidays!
