Altered Carbon premiere date: Meet Netflix's next great show

The end of the minute-long video provides a better look at the cybernetic future, overrun by sci-fi tropes like neon lights and hardened robots keeping order in a dark, bleak city. Besides Kinnaman, the cast includes James Purefoy (The Following), Martha Higareda (Royal Pains, McFarland, USA), Renee Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine, True Blood), Dichen Lachman (Agents of Shield, Shameless).

The first trailer for Netflix's adaptation of Altered Carbon is a hard one to sit through if you have a weak stomach.

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.

All 10 episodes of Altered Carbon drop on Netflix on February 2, 2018.

"Centuries ago, mankind found a way to transfer consciousness into a new body, making death a mere inconvenience", a soothing voice intones, as images of bodies with horizontal slits carved elegantly into the napes of their neck stand against glowing white backdrops.

Like a sexier Blade Runner, Altered Carbon is a story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future, when death is no longer permanent due to new technology. Based on Richard Morgan's cyberpunk novel of the same name, the series stars Joel Kinnaman in the lead role, and will begin streaming on the online service on February 2.

Police deemed it a suicide, however Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and enlists Kovacs to find out the truth. The trailer previews some of its worldbuilding and action, and hints that the show isn't going to shy away from its source material.

What is a body other than the vessel for your consciousness?

The firs trailer for Altered Carbon is now available for your viewing pleasure.
