Earlier this week, we got our first look at Netflix's upcoming cyberpunk series, Altered Carbon, which is based on Richard K. Morgan's 2002 science fiction novel.

The teaser popped up on the official Twitter page of Altered Carbon, and it shows an advertisement clip of Psychasec, the company behind the technology featured in the new series. "We offer state of the art sleeves. Upgraded biochemical pheromones. Sexually irresistible to anyone. Become a new you."

In Altered Carbon's dystopian world, human personalities can be stored digitally and downloaded into new bodies, called sleeves. Only the wealthy people are able to get replacement bodies on a continual basis.

Netflix hasn't announced an official release date for Altered Carbon yet but it's expected to premiere in 2018. The series is said to be one of the most expensive shows Netflix has produced, at $6-7 million per episode. It's being produced and written by Avatar co-writer Laeta Koligridis.
