NEW YORK, NY – November, 15, 2016 – AMC released today a new trailer for the highly anticipated second season of “Humans,” set to premiere in February 2017.
The series, penned by writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“SPOOKS,” “SPOOKS: THE GREATER GOOD”), is set in a parallel present and explores what happens when the lines between humans and machines are blurred. The eight-episode second season picks up several months after the events of season one, with Niska (Emily Berrington) still at large and in possession of the consciousness code. Her synth family, Mia (Gemma Chan), Leo (Colin Morgan), and Max (Ivanno Jeremiah), unaware of her location, are each trying to find their place in the world while Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) and Laura (Katherine Parkinson) attempt to mend their marriage. As unconfirmed reports of synths behaving inexplicably surface, the ripple effects of one simple yet seismic decision sees the past return dramatically and surprisingly to the door of the Hawkins house. Joe, Laura, and the entire family are faced with a difficult choice that will put the family under an intense spotlight. As an emerging form of intelligent life – the synths – and an established one – humanity – fight for their places in the world, a thrilling multi-stranded narrative evolves which continues to ask: who has the right to determine what it means to be alive?
Carrie-Anne Moss (“THE MATRIX,” “Jessica Jones”) joins the cast as Dr. Athena Morrow, a pre-eminent Artificial Intelligence expert who is driven by her own motives to create a new kind of machine consciousness. Additional casting includes, Sam Palladio (“Nashville,” “Episodes”) as Ed, a struggling café owner trying to breathe life into his family business; Marshall Allman (“True Blood,” “Prison Break”) plays Milo Khoury, a young Silicon Valley billionaire, founder and CEO of a leading technology company; intent on changing the world. Sonya Cassidy (“THE PARADISE,” “OLYMPUS”) and Letitia Wright (“CUCUMBER/ BANANA”) round out the cast.
