Humans Season 2 Confirmed

It appeared to be a story that had been done a million times, but the unique spin Humans delivered had us all hooked from the beginning. Gemma Chan helped a bit too!  Well anyways, today Channel 4 has announced the commission of a second season of Humans.

The new sci-fi drama, which began last month, is set in a world with life-like humanoids called ‘Synths’ and the first season concludes at 9pm this Sunday on Channel 4.

Filming on eight new episodes will begin next year.

Piers Wenger, Head of Drama at Channel 4 commented: “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.”

Executive producer Derek Wax added: “As producers, we’re so thrilled to have been able to work with Sam and Jon on such provocative and challenging ideas and stories. We’re delighted that viewers have connected with the series so wholeheartedly and look forward to continuing the wonderfully collaborative relationship with Channel 4 and AMC. And of course, going back to Synth School to learn some new moves for series two.”

The first episode of Humans in June was Channel 4’s highest rated originated drama in 20 years, with 6.1 million consolidated viewers.

Asked about their hopes for the future of Humans, Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley teased earlier this month: “Six seasons and a movie! No news on a second season at the moment. We can’t put a number on it but it feels like there’s huge scope to grow the story world and move things on.”
