If you still have some unfulfilled Blade Runner hunger carried over from last year, then you must take a look at this new trailer from Netflix. Altered Carbon’s world reminds a lot of that of Blade Runner, with this science-fiction murder mystery taking more than a few cues, at least visually.

In the future, consciousness is not restricted to the body you were born with, and poor Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman / Will Yun Lee) gets reuploaded after being dead for 250 years. The person managing this re-animation is the richest man on Earth, Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy, Rome), who believes he was murdered and needs Kovacs to find his killer.

Based on the book by Richard Morgan, which won the Philip K. Dick Award for Best Novel in 2003, Altered Carbon hits the small screen on 2 Feb 2018. Netflix seems to have a lot of confidence in this new series, with the second season apparently ordered already.

Luckily, sci-fi fans don’t have to wait too long for season one, so hit the play button below to see if this will be your sci-fi fix for Feb.
