Reboot. Recharge. Rebel.
Next week the Synths return in AMC’s Humans, the series we pegged as last year’s best look at life living with and as a borg. Humans is back for its third season with its season premiere Tuesday. When we last left Humans, Lucy Carless’s Mattie Hawkins had uploaded the software to free the Synths–those very human-looking and acting cyborg servants. Season 3 begins a year later–a year after all the Synths became fully conscious. Since then life in British society has become strained as the oppressed Synth population fights to survive in a world that hates and fears them.
Similar to iZombie’s shift last season from a normal world to a world living side-by-side with zombies both at peace and at war, the Synths of Season 3 have their own community of outsiders split in two: The original green-eyed Synths are the rogues, not content with their second-tier status, and the new Series 11 “Orange Eyes” are the new, safe, properly configured and upgraded Synths.
The Synth family of Mia (Gemma Chan), Niska (Emily Berrington) and Max (Ivanno Jeremiah) return, continuing to battle for their right to survival, The rest of the Hawkins family is back, too, with Mattie’s parents Laura (Katherine Parkinson) and Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) separated because of their divergent views of the Synths, and Mattie’s siblings Toby (Theo Stevenson) and Sophie (Pixie Davies) dealing with the upheavals all around them.
Here is a preview for Season 3 of AMC’s Humans:
Look for eight episodes of Humans this season airing Tuesday nights in the U.S. beginning June 5, 2018, at 9 p.m. Central on AMC. The new season began last week in the UK.
