We're incredibly excited to annouce that Humans is set to return for a second series.

The series will return for eight brand new episodes, with production starting next year.

Series One of Humans has attracted an average of 4.8million viewers and become Channel 4's highest rated drama in 20 years.

The press has described Humans as 'a terrific mix of panache and creepiness' (Sunday Times Culture) 'truly a drama for our times' (The Independent) and 'smart and darkā€¦.one of 2015's dramatic hits' (The Guardian) and is based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama 'Real Humans' from Matador Films.

Piers Wenger, Head of Drama at Channel 4 said; 'Humans has proved a huge hit with both audiences and critics alike this summer and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and to the team at Kudos for bringing a truly unmissable show to life. It also marks a key moment for Channel 4 as we expand our remit for bold and original drama into the international, co-production space. We look forward to working with our partners AMC on series 2 of Humans and to more Synth-related adventures to come'.
