Airing on AMC, the Humans TV show is a co-production with Channel 4 and Kudos in Britain. Season two aired in the UK months ago so, could that hurt the ratings for AMC? Because Humans is a co-production, does it need strong ratings? Will it be renewed for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
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. The second season 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. Joe (Goodman-Hill) and Laura (Parkinson) attempt to mend their marriage.
