The ambitious drama series is set 300 years in the future at a time when human consciousness can be digitally stored, allowing people to change and upgrade their bodies. If you wanna catch up quick, here's the situation: our main protagonist is actually a man by the name Takeshi Kovacs, who was a revolutionary fighter 250 years ago.
Netflix has released a full-length trailer for its original science fiction TV show Altered Carbon, and it takes viewers forcefully into the future where consciousness and body are two distinctly separate things. That means the aristocrat can hire Takeshi to solve his murder because his consciousness was simply uploaded to a new body when his previous expired. His mind was imprisoned, "on ice", for centuries until Laurens Bancroftm (Hap and Leonard's James Purefoy), an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. This is the first full length trailer Netflix has released for its hotly anticipated show. But as you can see in the latest trailer for Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Altered Carbon, that immortality can also be used to enslave other people. Explore Altered Carbon with the official Season 1 trailer below.
