‘Your body is not who you are.’
Netflix is upping their game when it comes to original content. Altered Carbon is the latest project that is lined up for release and the dystopian, futuristic series is already widely anticipated and expected to be the next big thing for the streaming giants.
Based on the book by Richard K Morgan of the same name the series tells the story set 300 years into the future. Involving betrayal, murder sex and love, the world has been transformed as we know it as death is no longer permanent. Instead of meeting the grim reaper, you can have your consciousness digitalised and downloaded into a completely new body enabling you to live again.
So when the wealthy Bancroft is murdered he offers to give the last survivor of an elite group of interstellar warriors a new life, if, and only if, he helps solve who murdered him.
It is already widely expected that this will become the next big thing for Netflix as the series will be a fast-paced, murder mystery type story with a futuristic concept thrown in to give it a very different twist.
When is the Altered Carbon release date?
Altered Carbon has been scheduled for a worldwide release on February 2nd on Netflix. The series will be released completely in one go, so all ten episode of the series can be watched in a binge session if you want.
