The sci-fi series takes place in 2384 where humanity has already seen its immortality. The human bodies have become sleeves and consciousness has turned digital. The on-screen Robocop Kinnaman proves to be a perfect choice for the role as he has past experience with similar category film and this time he will show his science fiction skill in Altered Carbon TV series and entertain Cyberpunk lovers.
