Netflix's Altered Carbon - First-look image and date announcement

Altered Carbon

Consciousness can be digitized…human bodies are interchangeable…and death is no longer permanent, welcome to the world of Altered Carbon where noBODY lives forever.

Altered Carbon launches on Netflix Friday, February 2, 2018.

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 (Joel Kinnaman) 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 (James Purefoy), 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.
