Synths and humans aren't all that different.
At least that's one of the things we learned by watching Humans Season 2, which ended last week after a shocking cliffhanger.
Good news, folks!! Humans Season 3 isn't all that far off.
The co-release between Channel 4 in the UK and AMC is written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and explores what happens when the line between humans and their synthetic counterparts are no longer well drawn.
The world isn't ours, but it could be.
And for those of us who grew up watching shows like The Jetsons and Lost In Space, we thought it would have been here by now.
“We’re thrilled to be continuing this story! The Humans audience will know that the end of season 2 changed everything,” showrunners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley said.
“We can’t wait to bring this new world to life – along with the best cast in TV, our amazing partners at Kudos and two fantastically supportive broadcasters in Channel 4 and AMC."
“Humans provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and Sundance TV.
“The critical response to season two celebrates the creative vision, dynamic story-telling and compelling portrayals shared by the writers, producers and actors."
"We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Channel 4 and Kudos and look forward to season three.”
Interestingly, Humans is based on the Swedish format program Real Human, and Channel Four first tried partnering with X-Box Studios.
That partnership only ended when X-Box Studios closed its doors.
Channel 4's Head of Drama, Beth Willis, added, “I can't wait to see what the extraordinarily talented Sam and Jon do next with this show – no doubt it will be as insightful, surprising and addictive as ever."
"It's a privilege to work with them, Kudos, AMC and our superb cast once again.”
This is good news for AMC, as they recently announced they're interested in exploring an online streaming content option for their original programming that airs on broadcast as well as new, unseen content.
