Today, AMC revealed the poster for Season 2 of the critically acclaimed drama, HUMANS, which will return on Monday, Feb. 13th at 10/9c.
The series, written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks, Spooks: The Greater Good), 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 1, 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 surface of Synths behaving inexplicably, 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?
New cast members include Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix, Jessica Jones) as Dr. Athena Morrow, a pre-eminent Artificial Intelligence expert who is driven by her own motives to create a new kind of machine consciousness; Sam Palladio (Nashville, Episodes) as Ed, a struggling café owner trying to breathe life into his family business; Marshall Allman (True Blood, Prison Break) as Milo Khoury, a young Silicon Valley billionaire, founder and CEO of a leading technology company intent on changing the world; Sonya Cassidy (The Paradise, Olympus) as Hester, one of the most unique Synths on the planet; Bella Dayne (Man in the High Castle) as Astrid, a free-spirited young Berliner who will be tested by someone special who comes into her life; and Letitia Wright (Black Panther, Cucumber, Banana) as Renie, a bullied seventeen-year-old “synthie,” a fast-growing subculture of humans pretending to be Synths.
In addition to Parkinson, Goodman-Hill, Chan, Berrington, Morgan, and Jeremiah, the returning cast also includes: Lucy Carless as Mattie Hawkins, Theo Stevenson as Toby Hawkins, Pixie Davies as Sophie Hawkins, Neil Maskell as D.S. Peter Drummond and Ruth Bradley as D.I. Karen Voss.
