AMC and Channel 4 have renewed the original drama series Humans for a third season. The new season will include eight episodes. Production will begin later this year for a 2018 debut.
Set in a parallel present, Humans examines what happens when the line between human and machine becomes blurred.
Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley developed the series. They executive produce with Lars Lundstrom, Henrik Widman, Derek Wax, Jane Featherstone and Emma Kingsman-Lloyd.
"We're thrilled to be continuing this story! The Humans audience will know that the end of season 2 changed everything," said Vincent and Brackley. "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."
"I can't wait to see what the extraordinary 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, Channel 4. "It's a privilege to work with them, Kudos, AMC and our superb cast once again."
"Humans provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society," said Joel Stillerman, President of Original Programming and Development, AMC and SundanceTV. "The critical response to season two celebrates the creative vision, dynamic storytelling 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."
