AMC has released the trailer for Season 2 of the British sci-fi series "Humans," which is set in a contemporary parallel world where humanistic robots meant for domestic use are becoming self-aware and possibly dangerous.
An English-language remake of an acclaimed Swedish series, "Humans" was developed by British writing and producing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, who both wrote on the British spy series "Spooks" (aka MI-5) and co-wrote the 2015 "MI-5" movie with Kit Harington.
The TV drama stars Gemma Chan, Katherine Parkinson, Emily Berrington, and Tom Goodman-Hill. While "The Matrix" star Carrie-Anne Moss has joined the cast of the new season, along with Sam Palladio (Nashville) and Marshall Allman (True Blood).
"Humans: Season 2" will run for eight episodes and premiere in the U.S. on AMC in February 2017.
The series 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. As unconfirmed reports of synths behaving inexplicably surface, the ripple effects of one simple yet seismic decision sees the past return dramatically and surprisingly to the door of the Hawkins house. Joe, Laura, and the entire family are faced with a difficult choice that will put the family under an intense spotlight. As an emerging form of intelligent life - the synths - and an established one - humanity - fight for their places in the world, a thrilling multi-stranded narrative evolves which continues to ask: who has the right to determine what it means to be alive?
