Humans Season 3 returning June 5!
AMC announced today its critically-acclaimed scripted drama Humans will return for season 3 on Tuesday, June 5th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, and you can check out the newly-released, first-look images below!
Humans provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effects on society. Timely and relevant, the new season unfolds on a bigger scale than ever before. The eight-episode season is set in a parallel present and explores what happens when the lines between humans and machines are blurred. Mark Bonnar (Catastrophe), joins series regulars Gemma Chan (Captain Marvel), Katherine Parkinson (The Honorable Woman), Tom Goodman-Hill (The Imitation Game), Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2), Colin Morgan (Merlin), Ivanno Jeremiah (Black Mirror), and Ruth Bradley (Grabbers).
Returning one year after the dawn of consciousness, a decimated and oppressed Synth population fights to survive in a world that hates and fears them. In a divided Britain, Synths and humans struggle to broker an uneasy peace, but when fractures within the Synth community itself start to appear, all hope of stability comes under threat.
Set against the maelstrom of political chaos, the ethical complexities of the dawn of a new species play out across a thrilling multi-stranded narrative. As the synth family, Mia (Chan), Niska (Berrington) and Max (Jeremiah) continue to battle for their right to survival, Joe (Goodman-Hill), Laura (Parkinson) and their children Mattie, Toby and Sophie struggle to come to terms with the cataclysmic events of the last season and their deeply polarised views on the implications of the singularity.
Humans is written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks: The Greater Good), Debbie O’Malley, Namsi Khan, Jonathan Harbottle, Melissa Iqbal and Daisy Coulam. It is based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama Real Humans, created by Lars Lundstrom and produced by SVT and Matador Film.
The new season is executive produced by Derek Wax, Emma Kingsman-Lloyd, Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley for Kudos in association with Wild Mercury Productions; Lars Lundstrom and Henrik Widman for Matador Films; and is produced by Vicki Delow for Kudos. The third season was commissioned for Channel 4 by Beth Willis and Simon Maxwell, and Kristin Jones for AMC.
