TCA: AMC Renews ‘Humans’

AMC will bring back its drama series Humans for a second season, the network announced Friday prior to its Television Critics Association tour session.

 Humans, a co-production between AMC and Britain’s Channel 4, will return for eight new episodes, with production starting next year, according to network officials.

The artificial intelligence-fused series is averaging 2 million viewers and 1 million adults 25-54 through its first four episodes in live+3 ratings, according to AMC.

“We’re so pleased to announce a second season of Humans and extend our terrific partnership with Channel 4,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and Sundance TV. “As one of the year’s top new cable series, Humans has been embraced by fans and critics across the U.S. and UK. We’re looking forward to continuing this very captivating story and further exploring the show’s parallel, Synth-filled world that hits so disturbingly close to home.”

AMC Friday also released  photos from the set of  Better Call Saul (pictured). The series, which is currently shooting its second season in Albuquerque, NM,  is set to debut early next year on AMC.
