The new sci-fi drama will return for Season 2.
July 31, 2015
AMC announced today that Humans has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes ahead of the sci-fi drama's first-season finale, which will cap a successful debut run that garnered critical acclaim and averaged 2 million viewers (Live+3). In the UK, where it is produced in partnership, the series premiere ranked as Channel 4's highest-rated original drama in 20 years.
Another 8 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of Humans, which will return in 2016.

Thats funny. Most of the British shows I watch have a fast and frantic pace. Not to mention there are many scenes where everyone seem to spontaneously break out into a full sprint, running around all over the place for no real apparent reason.

Finally, a good show DOESNT get cancelled.! This show is excellent. Very thought provoking.

@James, yes but your seasons or "series" are generally only 6-8 episodes. Ours are generally 13 - 22. Sometimes only 10. So "develop over time" is kind of misnomer. It's a shorter season so there's LESS time. yet the pacing is half what it seems it should be. Please don't get me wrong. I LIKE this show as well as other UK shows. I just think THIS show is moving a bit slow. There have been some unrelated things which COULD have been trimmed (Tom for the most part). But if you sign a contract for 8 episodes and you currently have a 20 minute outline... you do have to add some padding somewhere to fill those 8 episodes. What is or is not seen as good padding I think varies based on the differing cultures.

Re. Yup comments, us in the UK like a show to develop over time, unlike some in the US that need everything to happen in the first 10 minutes. That is the main reason shows in the UK last longer than the US, as after 3 or 4 episodes the show is technically over.

I haven't watched this yet because of so many shows I watch that get axed - so it looks like I have a binge coming on lol

I'm glad for this. It turned out much better than I thought. My wife and I both enjoy it.

I like the show, but it is an English show and the pacing reflects that. Still, it's decent. Just wish it moved a bit faster. Seems to be taking forever to get through the first season of 8 episodes. In the US.. it would have been where it is now by episode 3 or 4, not 7.

This is surprisingly an excellent series.

Humans??? Ok whatever, I guess we are running out of names to call shows. Coming next season is the spinoff... People.
