Earth's wealthiest man, Laurens Bancroft (Antonio Marziale) hires him for an unusual task: someone murdered Bancroft's previous body, and the new version wants Kovacs to track down the killer.

For more information on ALTERED CARBON visit the Offical page on Netflix, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Starring Joel Kinnaman, James Purefoy, Martha Higareda, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Dichen Lachman, Chris Conner and Hiro Kanagawa, ALTERED CARBON Launches on Neflix Friday February 2 2018.

In one of the first real efforts to bring the cyberpunk genre to television, Netflix ordered Richard K. Morgan's classic 2002 novel Altered Carbon to series in early 2016. In the world of Altered Carbon, which is set hundreds of years into the future, death is not the end thanks to technology perfected by an organization called Psychasec.

Ultimately, Altered Carbon is going to be that show.

The trailer starts off with an advertisement for the "human sleeve", a way for "mankind to transfer consciousness into a new body". Takeshi Kovacs (Suicide Squad's 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.

Based on Richard Morgan's novel, the sci-fi drama "is set in the 25th century when the human mind has been digitized and the soul is transferable from one body to the next". Their memories and consciousness are able to be stored on digital implants, referred to as "stacks", and can be transported between bodies as people upgrade.

Creative staff for Altered Carbon includes writer Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Terminator: Genisys), and Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) directed the first episode.

Netflix recently released the number of series and movies that have left the platform this month along with the handful of newcomers to get excited for.
