It looks like Humans is going extinct. Deadline reports the AMC/Channel 4 TV show has been cancelled after three seasons.
The UK drama series is set in a parallel present, where the latest must-have gadget for any home is a Synthetic. What happens though, when the “Synths” are imbued with consciousness and free will? The artificial intelligence series explores the potential consequences of blurring the lines between human and machine. The cast includes Gemma Chan, Ivanno Jeremiah, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, and Emily Berrington.
From AMC and Channel 4:
Sadly, there won’t be a fourth season of Humans. In this age of unprecedented choice and competition, we can have no complaints. Channel 4 and AMC were the perfect partners. They supported the show brilliantly and above all – let us make three seasons. We’re gutted, of course, but we were so lucky. We got to make the show we wanted to make, for 24 episodes. The Humans cast and crew were and are the best and we wouldn’t have got a second season without their talent and dedication, let alone a third. We can’t name anyone without naming everyone, and that would mean we’d have to do this in an even smaller front – so here’s to every last actor, director, writer, producer, exec, commissioner, DoP, editor, composer, crew member and the unfailingly generous Swedish team behind the original version.”
What do you think? Have you seen Humans? Would you have watched a fourth season?
