Sci-fi series Humans, an adaptation of Swedish drama Real Humans, has been renewed for a third season.
Jointly-produced for Channel 4 in the UK an AMC in the US, it will return with eight new episodes in 2018, with key cast members set to return.
The good news will push it to one more season than its original.
“Humans provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and Sundance TV. “The critical response to season two celebrates the creative vision, dynamic story-telling and compelling portrayals shared by the writers, producers and actors. We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Channel 4 and Kudos and look forward to season three.”
“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,” said Beth Willis, head of drama at Channel 4. “It’s a privilege to work with them, Kudos, AMC and our superb cast once again.”
Humans airs in Australia on ABC2.
