Plot Synopsis

Based on Richard K. Morgan's cyberpunk noir novel of the same name, ALTERED CARBON is a one-hour scripted set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned -- on ice -- for 250 years until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder...that of Bancroft himself. The series opens with Takeshi waking up centuries after his death to discover he's been resurrected to help a titan of industry solve his own murder. While Kovacs tracks down a man who sent Bancroft a death threat, Lt. Ortega bends the rules to keep tabs on his whereabouts. Then, Kovacs recruits an unlikely partner to watch his back during a banquet at the Bancroft home, where Ortega oversees the night's grisly entertainment. On Friday, February 2, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released 10 episodes of this series.
