"Centuries ago, mankind discovered a way to transfer consciousness into a new body making death a mere inconvenience", says the commercial.
Like a sexier Blade Runner, Altered Carbon is a story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future, when death is no longer permanent due to new technology.
Joel Kinnaman stars as Takeshi Kovacs, a biracial Japanese envoy who's sleeved into the body of a white man, which will probably raise eyebrows among some sci-fi fans (especially after the whitewashing in Ghost in the Shell).

View the Altered Carbon teaser below, along with new photos in the gallery, and check out the show when it launches Friday, February 2 on Netflix! In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder ... that of Bancroft himself. Their memories and consciousness are able to be stored on digital implants, referred to as "stacks", and can be transported between bodies as people upgrade. Laeta Kalogridis serves as executive producer and creator of Altered Carbon. The first trailer for Altered Carbon begins with a commercial of sorts for the fictional product, pitching the concept of "human sleeves", as sold to elite consumers.
Netflix recently released the number of series and movies that have left the platform this month along with the handful of newcomers to get excited for.
