Set in a future where humans have gained the ability to transfer consciousness from one body to another (provided they can afford it). Altered Carbon is a tech noir murder mystery in a time where death no longer means the end.

Takeshi Kovacs (played by both Joel Kinnerman and Will Yun Lee) is an Envoy. A soldier killed in combat far from Earth and 'reborn' more than two centuries later. Bought and paid for by wealthy elitist Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) Kovacs must investigate Bancroft’s death, equipped with a ‘body’ that’s loaded for bear.

Based on the 2002 book by Richard Morgan and set against a backdrop of political mind games, struggles for power, mystery and intrigue, Altered Carbon has an expansive scope and what looks to be a huge budget. The complete first season of Altered Carbon is set to release on February 2nd. For now, you can enjoy the trailer.



Altered Carbon is rated MA15+
