Humans Writers Tease More Synths In Season 2

Humans Writers Tease More Synths In Season 2
At the weekend, at MCM London Comic Con, we interviewed the writers of Channel 4’s excellent series Humans following their panel. They spoke about season two. We didn’t print anything about that because we were specifically asked not to by the PR people present. They were adamant. So, just for the record, none of the following information comes from our interview. It comes from a talk the crew gave yesterday at an “Anatomy Of A Hit” panel...

Executive Producers Reveal Humans Season 2 Teasers
The executive producers for Channel 4’s hit sci-fi series Humans, Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, have revealed a few teasers about how the show will develop in season two to TVLine.com. And if you’ve seen season two of the Swedish original, don’t rely on that for clues. “It’ll be a further departure,” says Vincent. “That’s not really a deliberate choice to look at the second season and say, ‘We’re going to do something really...

Humans Season 1 Review

Channel 4’s synth-filled co-production with AMC feels so much the product of a singularly British form of sci-fi it’s somewhat surprising to recall that it’s actually based on a Swedish series called Real Humans. Admittedly its glacial pace and love of longueurs does call to mind the current crop of in-vogue Scandinavian crime shows but the plucky middle-class,... 

Humans Renewed For Season 2

Humans Renewed For Season 2
Great news. Channel 4’s excellent Humans – a co-production with the State’s AMC network – has proven such a hit on both sides of the Atlantic that a second season has been commissioned. The show – about synthetic beings created to be unthinking workhorses but who attain sentience – will reach its season one premier in the UK on Sunday. If you’re not watching it you should be. It’s really rather good. That’s why it’s been Channel...
