'Humans' that provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society, is setting the stage for bigger and relevant conflicts and resolution in the forthcoming season. Picking up after the dawn of consciousness, in a divided Britain, Synths and humans will be struggling to broker an uneasy peace, but when fractures within the Synth community start to appear, all hope of stability appears to be threatened.
For the Synth family, in fact, the battle for their right to survival has just begun. As Mia (Chan), Niska (Emily Berrington) and Max (Jeremiah) struggle to find their place in this dystopian society, Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill), wife Laura (Parkinson) and their children will be dealing with conflict of their own, struggling to come to terms with the cataclysmic events of the last season.
Mark Bonnar (of fame 'Catastrophe', 'Apple Tree Yard') join season 3 as a charming new scientist.
“The major theme of series three is how two species can live together in harmony and whether that’s possible,” show producer Vicki Delow said, offering an early sneak-peek into the season.
As new executive-producer Emma Kingsman-Lloyd added: “The current political climate and where we are as a nation and as a world is absolutely part of it. We try to explore both sides of the argument and try to be balanced and not demonize either side; there are really interesting questions to ask on both sides. We didn’t sit down and say we were going to do a story about Brexit [but] sadly it is very relevant to all audiences,” according to Deadline.
Scripted by Vincent and Brackley, along with Debbie O’Malley, Namsi Khan, Jonathan Harbottle, Melissa Iqbal and Daisy Coulam, 'Humans' season 3 also airs on Channel 4.
