'Soulmates' premieres on Thursday, October 1, 2020, on AMC+ and will be premiering on Monday, October 5, 2020, at 10 pm ET/9c on AMC
In what is the first-ever format for AMC, six episodes will feature a different cast with characters exploring an entirely new story around discovering (or opting not to discover) what lies ahead. 'Soulmates' is set 15 years into the future when science has made a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet - a test that unequivocally tells you who your soulmate is. What the takers of this test do not know are the results and the impact of those results on a myriad of relationships.
From its first glance, the show offers a little bit of a 'Black Mirror: Hang the DJ' vibe. 'Soulmates' premieres on Thursday, October 1, 2020, on AMC+ and will be premiering on Monday, October 5, 2020, at 10 pm ET/9c on AMC.
