Altered Carbon is an American cyberpunk and science fiction television series made by Laeta Kalogridis. The series is based on the book The Immortality Program by Richard Morgan, which was published in 2002. The first season consists of 10 episodes and was released on February 2, 2018 Netflix via streaming. The series is set in the 25th century in a dystopian world where it is possible to digitize, store and download a person’s mind into another body. At the centre of the action is the former elite soldier Takeshi Kovacs, who is transferred 250 years after his death in the body of a police officer. He receives orders to clarify a murder. If he succeeds in resolving a murder in this world where technology has almost completely ousted death, he could get the chance of a new life. The client is the wealthy Laurens Bancroft, who like all the wealthy class is called "Meth", alluding to Methuselah. They live secluded and keep buying new, young bodies to extend their lives.
