What’s This TV Show About?
The Humans TV show takes place in a parallel present, where the latest must-have gadget for any home is a Synthetic. But what happens when these Synths are given the right to consciousness and their own free will? The AMC cast includes Gemma Chan, Emily Berrington, Colin Morgan, Ivanno Jeremiah, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Lucy Carless, Theo Stevenson, Pixie Davies, Carrie-Anne Moss, Marshall Allman, Neil Maskell, Ruth Bradley, Will Tudor, Sonya Cassidy, Sam Palladio, Bella Dayne, and Letitia Wright. Season two picks up with Niska (Berrington) still at large and in possession of the consciousness code. Her Synth family (Chan, Morgan, and Jeremiah) is unaware of her location, with each trying to find their place in the world. Meanwhile, Joe (Goodman-Hill) and Laura (Parkinson) attempt to mend their marriage.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Humans averaged a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 462,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 65% in the demo and down by 61% in viewership. Learn how Humans stacks up against the other AMC TV shows.
In its first season, Humans was a middling performer. Because it is a co-production between AMC, UK Channel 4, and Kudos, that defrays some of the cost, which means the show has a lower ratings bang-for-buck threshold. I suspect that AMC will want to partner to renew Humans for a third season however, the big drop in ratings is not a good sign. We’ll have to wait and see. Stay tuned for updates.
3/28 update: Humans has been renewed for season three on AMC and Channel 4. Details here.
