Altered Carbon – the new Netflix sci-fi series looks a bit good

We’re getting a Blade Runner vibe

Netflix appear to have come up trumps again with their new sci-fi offering, Altered Carbon. Based on the Richard K. Morgan novel of the same name, the show is set five hundred years in the future in a universe in which the United Nations Protectorate oversees a number of extrasolar planets settled by human beings.

The teaser looks fantastic – stylish with hints of Blade Runner and Spielberg’s A.I. The show has been developed by Laeta Kalogridis who has written and directed the 10 episode first season. Kalogridis previously co-wrote the excellent Leonardo DiCaprio film Shutter Island and the slightly less well received Terminator Genisys.

Altered Carbon arrives on Netflix on 2nd February 2018.
