Here's The Trailer For Netflix's "Altered Carbon" Series, Based On The Cyberpunk Book Of The Same Name


Altered Carbon is a cyberpunk science fiction novel by Richard K. Morgan from 2002. The book received the Philip K. Dick Award for Best Novel in 2003 and has become incredibly popular among fans of this Bladerunner type genre. The Netflix series of the same name is set to stream in February of 2018.

Here's the show summary from IMDB: ALTERED CARBON is set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks implanted in the spine, allowing humans to survive physical death by having their memories and consciousness "re-sleeved" into new bodies. The story follows specially trained "Envoy" soldier Takeshi Kovacs, who is downloaded from an off-world prison and into the body of a disgraced cop at the behest of Laurens Bancroft, a highly influential aristocrat. Bancroft was killed, and the last automatic backup of his stack was made hours before his death, leaving him with no memory of who killed him and why. While police ruled it a suicide, Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and wants Kovacs to find out the truth.
