It looks like Netflix has a new hit on their hands. Deadline reports Altered Carbon earned 2.5 million viewers during its first week.
Based on the novel by Richard K. Morgan, the sci-fi drama takes place in the 24th century and centers on Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a 22nd century mercenary who is forced to track down a killer. The cast also includes Renée Elise Goldsberry, James Purefoy, Kristin Lehman, Martha Higareda, Dichen Lachman, Leonardo Nam, Hayley Law, Chris Conner, Ato Essandoh, Trieu Tran, Will Yun Lee, Marlene Forte, and Byron Mann.
While Netflix doesn’t typically release ratings, Nielsen revealed Altered Carbon garnered 2.5 million viewers during its first seven days on the streaming service. However, the future of the sci-fi series is still up in the air.
