It's paid off in big ways with the successes of Stranger Things, The Crown, Orange is the New Black, among others, but the latest sees Netflix dive headfirst into the sci-fi genre unlike anything we've seen from them before. Altered Carbon launches on Netflix Friday, February 2.

It begins with an eerie computer-esque narrator as she says 'centuries ago mankind discovered a way to transfer consciousness into a new body, making death a mere inconvenience'.

Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future.

The first trailer for a series Netflix has kept quite low-key up till now, Altered Carbon, was released on Monday.

Ultimately, Altered Carbon is going to be that show. 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. Kovacs has his unconsciousness imprisoned and, when he's awakened in a new body hundreds of years later, learns a wealthy businessman, Laurens Bancroft, has freed him with the intention that Kovacs would help Bancroft solve a crime. They have also recently announced that they adapted Richard Morgan's Altered Carbon sci-fi mystery novel.

Either way, the new series certainly fits with the Netflix ethos of investing more and more in its original programming as competing streaming services crop up and further splinter rights to existing film and TV. With Laeta Kalogridis, co-writer of Avatar and Terminator Genisys attached as executive producer and showrunner, the series finally follows through on an earlier attempt to get a movie script picked up.

The trailer certainly nails the same dystopian future, cyberpunk aesthetic that delighted fans of Blade Runner 2049, so clear your binging schedule for 2018 accordingly.
