Humans Renewed For Series Two
Humans, the gripping sci-fi show due to air its final episode of series one this Sunday, has been renewed by Channel 4 and AMC for another eight episode second season. Set in a parallel world where humanoid 'synths' are part of everyday life, the show has been a critical and commercial success for Channel 4, being its highest-rated original drama in 20 years.
The shows creators had recently talked about 'big plan's for the show, should it continue. Channel 4's head of drama Piers Wenger certainly seemed to agree.
"Humans has proved a huge hit with both audiences and critics alike this summer and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and to the team at Kudos for bringing a truly unmissable show to life.
"It also marks a key moment for Channel 4 as we expand our remit for bold and original drama into the international, co-production space. We look forward to working with our partners AMC on series 2 of Humans and to more Synth-related adventures to come".
Our full series review will be online next week. Needless to say, we're rather glad the show is coming back...
