ALTERED CARBON Trailer: Netflix's Cyberpunk Show Is Also Its Most Expensive Yet

Altered Carbon Joel Kinnaman Netflix

Though fan outcry pushed the streaming service to commit to a one-off, two-hour finale for the Wachowskis' series, the cancellation still left a sci-fi sized hole in the company's programming going forward.

The epic new show has been described by IMDb as a world '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'.

That changes on February 2, 2018.

Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future.

Altered Carbon will follow Takeshi Kovacs, a mercenary who becomes a revolutionary.

Police deemed it a suicide, however Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and enlists Kovacs to find out the truth.

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.

The Netflix series, from writer/producer Laeta Kalogridis (Terminator Genisys, Shutter Island) and director Miguel Sapochnik (best known for directing the "Battle of the Bastards" episode of Game of Thrones) stars Joel Kinnaman (Netflix's own House of Cards, The Killing).

As for what we can expect from the trailer, think a mix between Black Mirror and Blade Runner.
