Channel 4 and AMC have commissioned a third series of Humans, the Kudos produced series about a parallel present in which the line between human and robot becomes blurred.
Filming on a new eight episode run will start this Autumn, with key cast members including Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Gemma Chan, and Colin Morgan, confirmed to return.
Writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley said: “We’re thrilled to be continuing this story! The Humans audience will know that the end of series 2 changed everything.
“We can’t wait to bring this new world to life – along with the best cast in TV, our amazing partners at Kudos and two fantastically supportive broadcasters in Channel 4 and AMC.”
Beth Willis, Head of Drama at Channel 4 commented: “I can’t wait to see what the extraordinarily talented Sam and Jon do next with this show – no doubt it will be as insightful, surprising and addictive as ever.
“It’s a privilege to work with them, Kudos, AMC and our superb cast once again.”
Diederick Santer CEO of Kudos and Executive Producer Derek Wax said: “We are delighted to be working with Channel 4 and AMC once again on this compelling series.
“The world that Sam and Jon have so vividly created is set to unfold and reveal itself in even more meaningful, exciting and complex ways and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for our cast of incredible characters.”
Joel Stillerman, President of Original Programming and Development for AMC added: “‘Humans’ provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society.
“The critical response to season two celebrates the creative vision, dynamic story-telling and compelling portrayals shared by the writers, producers and actors.
