Netflix just released the first trailer for its upcoming cyberpunk show Altered Carbon. The show takes place in a world inspired by Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 science fiction novel by the same name, in which a soldier is brought back to life to investigate a rich man’s murder.
In this fictionalized future, people can digitally copy their memories and personalities into a “cortical stack” and implant them in a new body, allowing people (rich and famous) to avoid death.
Kinnaman explains, “The danger of living too many times: you forget to fear death.”
Altered Carbon begins streaming on Netflix on February 2nd, 2018.
