‘Humans’ Season 2 Air Date, Teaser & News: Marketing For Return Of Sci-Fi Show Gets Too Real & It’s Quite Smart!

EE British Academy Film Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

“Humans” is returning to the small screen for a second season this fall. In line with its premiere, the show unleashed a marketing campaign around London that has gotten quite realistic. The smart publicity involves an actual product recall for the synths, or the robots with artificial intelligence (AI) featured in the show’s main story.
Fictional store fronts and trucks around London were set up for the said recall of the synths from “Humans.” Some people didn’t initially believe that this was part of a TV series publicity for it was just too real, Creative Review reports.

“Humans,” which airs on Channel 4 in the U.K. and the AMC cable network in the U.S.A., has also tied up with Persona Synthetics for the publicity. It’s an actual website that explains the “product recall” for synth owners, as some of the AI robots have been found to have exhibited “technical difficulties.”

Viewers might recall that during the “Humans” Season 1 finale, a group of synths, who used to be employed as helpers, have “awaken” from their consciousness. It opens the storyline for “Humans” Season 2, where there’s a growing tension that these synths could soon uncover a damning conspiracy. Below is a video of one of “Humans'” realistic campaigns.

“Humans” Season 2 will see the return of Gemma Chan as the synth Mia. The new season will follow months after the end of “Humans” Season 1, with Mia and other synths just like her have awaken. Now, Mia has left the family who owns her to start life anew as a cafe worker and has gone largely undetected by the company that developed the synths, per Radio Times.

Her synth friends are also trying to keep themselves undetected in “Humans” Season 2. However, Niska, who is played by Emily Berrington, also remains at large. She has stolen the codes that has led to the synths to be hunted down one by one.

“There’s lots of new, society-wide effects which we’re going to tell stories in,” Sam Vincent, the writer for “Humans” told Digital Spy. “Humans” Season 2 will also introduce new cast additions such as Carrie-Anne Moss, Sam Palladio and Marshall Allman.

“Humans” Season 2 will air first in the U.K. this October. The U.S.A. airing on AMC is expected to follow a few weeks after the U.K. release.

    I’ve had HUMANS in my watch queue for months, but I hadn’t gotten around to watching it, even though I wanted to. It sounded intriguing to me. Then by chance I happened to see the first few episodes of HBO’s WEST WORLD (which in itself is odd because I’ve never subscribed to HBO – for one reason, I can’t stand the use of language, etc., on that network or others like it).

    At any rate, I did see WEST WORLD and absolutely despised it. Yes, I know it seems to be garnering much praise, but I have thus far seen it as little more than a pretentious soap opera about “robots,” for lack of a different word at the moment, that look and act–and feel–just like humans. In fact, I disliked it so much that I immediately decided to watch HUMANS to see if it was any better. Frankly, I needed to try to wash the bad taste out of my mouth.

    I have only seen the first four episodes thus far, but I have to say that I am really liking it! One aspect that I’m very happy about is the fact that the Synths are not mirror images of human beings. I can see that this is going to change to some degree as things move forward but I hope it will be handled as intelligently as the beginning of it has been.

    And I have to say that I’ve practically fallen in love with Gemma Chan’s character, Anita (Mia). The creative team behind the show has made it easy to understand how we human beings could accept relationships with synths rather than our own kind. But that’s merely a small portion of what I have admired about the show. Just one more example would the question and answer session that the mother of the family has with Anita (Mia) in one episode. The series has exhibited a logic to it that others simply skip passed.

    So I’d just like to wish everyone involved the very best of luck with season two. And to Gemma Chan I would like to say that you are beautiful and you play your character on the show masterfully. I have been most impressed with your performance.
