Following the debut of the core series’ second season, Netflix has debuted the official trailer for its first Altered Carbon spin-off, Altered Carbon: Resleeved. This Netflix Anime comes from Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex‘s Dai Sato, and takes place on the planet Latimer. According to Netflix’s summary, our protagonist “Takeshi Kovacs must protect a tattoo artist while investigating the death of a yakuza boss alongside a no-nonsense CTAC.”
The setting will feature a futuristic Japan with a distinct Blade Runner look and is set to further expand on the sci-fi mythology of the franchise. A blend of 2D and 3D animation will be used for the film as well. However, it is unknown if this series will serve as a prequel or sequel to the original live-action series.
Altered Carbon: Resleeved premieres on Netflix on March 19.
