Netflix is all set to launch biggest sci-fi show Altered Carbon

The streaming site has unveiled the first look at its upcoming show Altered Carbon, and honestly, it looks pretty damn terrifying.

I'll be the first to hold my hands up and admit that whenever a new Netflix series comes out, I immediately clear my schedule and spend my evenings binge-watching until I've completed the task at hand.

He now leads the nation in passing efficiency rating, completion percentage, yards per pass and multiple other categories. He is also the first player to ever throw for at least 3,000 yards and rush for at least 1,000 in consecutive seasons.

Netflix is doubling down on dark sci-fi in 2018.

The series itself is based on the cyberpunk noir novel, by Richard K. Morgan, and is set 300 years into the future. Welcome to the world of Altered Carbon, where no BODY lives forever.

Channelling a combination of vibes and visuals from the likes of Blade Runner 2049, Ex Machina, and Deus Ex Human Revolution, Altered Carbon centres around the idea that humans can transfer their consciousness into fresh biologically grown human bodies thereby cheating death. So we have high hopes that Altered Carbon hits the same high standards, hopefully leaning more on the side of intriguing drama than pulpy sci-fi action. Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik directed the pilot and has a talented supporting cast with Hamilton's Renée Elise Goldsberry, Dichen Lachman, Martha Higareda, and Kristin Lehman.

Enter Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman, last seen in House of Cards), the only surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. He is imprisoned, his consciousness stored and awoken centuries later by a wealthy mogul to solve a murder case. Joel Kinnaman (of the recent RoboCop remake) stars as Kovacs, who is a biracial man of Japanese-descent in the books that ends up in a white man's body (hopefully the series is more cognizant of that identity dynamic than, say, the new Ghost in the Shell). The show has been one of Netflix's most anticipated shows of the past year, and now details are finally starting to reveal themselves.
