Netflix offers a first look at its upcoming sci-fi series, Altered Carbon, starring Joel Kinnaman.
Based on the award-winning novel, Kinnaman plays Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs in a future where the human mind can be digitized and downloaded into a “cortical stack” and placed into new bodies, called sleeves.
He is brought back to life centuries later to investigate the attempted murder of Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), the wealthiest man on Earth. As the investigation progresses, Kovacs comes to learn that his past isn’t nearly as buried as he thought.
Altered Carbon debuts on Netflix on Feb. 2, 2018.
