There will be no fourth season for Humans. The Channel 4/AMC co-production has been cancelled after three seasons, TVWise has confirmed. The news comes close to a year after the third season wrapped its run.
“Humans will not be returning for another series. The show has had three successful series and has been much loved by fans”, a representative of Channel 4 said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud of Humans and the hugely talented creative team, in front of and behind the camera.”
Originally developed for Channel 4 before AMC boarded as co-producer, Humans is set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart. In the hope of transforming the way they live, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences.
The drama series, which is based on the Scandinavian series Real Humans, is produced by Kudos and Matador Films, and stars Gemma Chan, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Emily Berrington, Colin Morgan, Ivanno Jeremiah, Ruth Bradley and Mark Bonnar. The series was created by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley. The executive producers are Vincent, Brackley, Derek Wax, Emma Kingsman-Lloyd for Kudos in association with Wild Mercury Productions and Lundstrom and Henrik Widman for Matador Films
