‘Humans’ Cancelled After 3 Seasons. No Season 4.
Some really sad news… ‘Humans‘ has been cancelled after 3 Seasons.
The news came from show creators Jonathan Brackley & Sam Vincent who released a statement on social media today saying “Sadly there won’t be a 4th season of Humans. In this age of unprecedented choice and competition, we can have no complaints. Channel 4 & AMC were the perfect partners. They supported the show brilliantly and above all – let us make three seasons!”
They go on to say they are “gutted”, but feel lucky they got to make the show they wanted to make for 24 episodes. They go on to thank the cast and crew, and, of course, the fans.
The critically acclaimed drama series set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for a busy family is a Synth – a life-like humanoid. Whilst things started out okay, they quickly deteriorate when synths begin to gain consciousness, leading to a decimated and oppressed Synth population fights to survive in a world that hates and fears them.
The drama starred Gemma Chan as Mia, Emily Berrington as Niska, Ivanno Jeremiah as Max, Colin Morgan as Leo, Katherine Parkinson as Laura, Theo Stevenson as Toby, Tom Goodman-Hill as Joe, Lucy Carless as Mattie, and Pixie Davies as Sophie.
Here at Geektown, we have a huge affection for the series, cast and crew who were always lovely to us. We have interviewed many of the cast, been on set visits, and even got to appear in the AI documentary they did, hosted by Gemma Chan. It will be sorely missed.
Commenting on any leftover plot points, Brackley and Vincent say “we know we left some threads hanging… Maybe one day we’ll get a chance to pick them back up. If there’s anyone out there with a few million quid and an interest in AI stories, we’re all ears. DM us Elon.”
Do it Elon, do it!
