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.

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.

What do you think? Are you happy Humans was renewed for a third season? How would you feel, had AMC cancelled this TV show, instead?
Very glad it has been renewed! Love the show!
I enjoyed season one. Took some time to find season 2 as it suddensuddenly moved networks. Saw one episode and it disappeared again. Wanted to see it but could not find it. Streamed twtwo mote episodes before losing it again. Now it is on amazon prime for $2.99 per episode. Will it be alongside WWE on pay-per-view next?
I swear- if they cancle the show it is the writers OBLIGATION to at the verry leaste give a quick synapses of the ending of the story- a quick run down of what then happemeds. This has been one of my favorite shows and i believe it just got better as the episodes whent on. Every season though feels like its a different part of the story with the first being more of the exposition/rising action with the seccond being rising/verry beginning of the climax. Seriously one of the best written shows with the divercity of charactors and plots and… Read more »
You seem to be reading too-much into the line! Not here to fight but just one question: Are you a “fan[atic]”?
The show was renewed with some of the WORST ratings in the history of Television. I expect SYFY to renew show with pathetic overall ratings like a 0.14, not AMC. However, if Into The Badlands or The Walking Dead ever plummet to ratings this awful, I will be expecting a RENEWAL!
How much of the spamming looks “cool” to you?? But I’m not gonna go “***-for-tat”, just hoping you would read and grasp what I said over there.
Please do not cancel this show..every week i cannot wait to watch this …now you have breaking bad on that i do not watch.. Has the season ended all ready ?
You didn’t have an idea of what was the last-episode of your favourite-show in this season? Okay, if you can recall somehow, just confirm whether it was Episode 8 or even earlier??
Truly, the series is just getting started as Season Two closes out: with the synthetics now conscious, the entire world becomes the stage. This is one of the most far-seeing and interesting shows going — and the subject matter is gaining in interest (this month’s National Geographic’s headline story is about bringing human evolution to the next step through technology). Bring it back for another season!
Link for that [Fox® owned] Nat Geo® mag edition??
I would love to see the return of Humans for season 3.
But was wondering how much season 2 was promoted? Was it only promoted on the AMC channel? I noticed bsacically by accident that it was coming back on for a second season.
I saw an ad on The Walking Dead after the first few episodes had already aired. They didn’t promote the show well enough in my opinion; and if they did a catch-up marathon of season 1 first it wasn’t well publicized. Given the shortness of the seasons and the enormous time gap between the first and second, most people would forget a fair number of plot details.
Yes, maybe they didn’t because of the reason they keep it renewing, everything ultimately acts as “double-edged sword” in this [human civilization based] universe. Nothing is universal.
But being totally-serious, the divine “marketing team” is a bunch of “smart-“businessman of course, everywhere (i.e. not exclusive to AMC Networks®).
Please renew this show. The aftermath of the mass awakening could make season 3 the best one yet! This is quality television with a solid thought-provoking plot. I will be VERY disappointed if they end the story right here.
Love Humans. Don’t cancel!!!
Love this show! Hope it continues to season 3!
I love this show! It is a thinker.
I love this show! It is a real thinker as opposed to just violence.
Love this show hope it doesn’t get canceled. Hope Leo is not gone…..want to see the Elsters make it as a family….Now that the synths are awake, the show is moving to the next level. UK loves to cancel their shows after two seasons. They need to follow through, hard to have faith when they do this…. I am always wondering should I watch this, they have these great shows that go no where, leave you wondering, after they get you intetested.
Very good show! Hoping for renewal.
