The synths will be returning soon!
AMC announced today the critically-acclaimed scripted drama HUMANS will make its highly anticipated return on Monday, February, 13th at 10:00 P.M. ET/PT.
The series, penned by writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, is set in a parallel present and explores what happens when the lines between humans and machines are blurred.
The eight-episode second season picks up several months after the events of season one, with Niska (Emily Berrington) still at large and in possession of the consciousness code.
Her synth family, Mia (Gemma Chan), Leo (Colin Morgan), and Max (Ivanno Jeremiah), unaware of her location, are each trying to find their place in the world while Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) and Laura (Katherine Parkinson) attempt to mend their marriage.
Carrie-Anne Moss joins the cast as Dr. Athena Morrow, a pre-eminent Artificial Intelligence expert who is driven by her own motives to create a new kind of machine consciousness.
Additional casting includes, Sam Palladio as Ed, a struggling café owner trying to breathe life into his family business; Marshall Allman plays Milo Khoury, a young Silicon Valley billionaire, founder and CEO of a leading technology company intent on changing the world; Sonya Cassidy as Hester, one of the most unique Synths on the planet; Bella Dayne as Astrid, a free-spirited young Berliner who will be tested by someone special who comes into her life; and Letitia Wright as Renie, a bullied seventeen-year-old “synthie,” a fast-growing subculture of humans pretending to be Synths.
HUMANS is written by Vincent and Brackley with Joe Barton, Charlie Covell and Iain Weatherby.
