The drama bowed to 1.7 million viewers last month on AMC and has averaged 2 million viewers for its first season, making it a top five cable drama among adults 25-54. Additionally, the premiere episode was Channel 4’s highest rated original drama in 20 years, pulling in 18 percent of the U.K. viewing audience on Sunday nights at 9 p.m.
The series, which is co-produced by AMC and Channel 4 with Kudos (the British production company behind Utopia and Broadchurch), is from writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks).
“We’re so pleased to announce a second season of Humans and extend our terrific partnership with Channel 4, Kudos and the stellar cast, crew and writers Sam and Jonathan,” Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and Sundance TV, said in a statement. “As one of the year’s top new cable series, ‘Humans’ has been embraced by fans and critics across the U.S. and U.K. We’re looking forward to continuing this very captivating story and further exploring the show’s parallel, Synth-filled world that hits so disturbingly close to home.”
