Even though there isn’t any official word about a second series pick up for ‘Humans’ its not stopping people from talking about it.
Will Tudor who has impressed as the malfunctioning Synth Odi has revealed that the writers for the series have plans beyond the limited 8 episode run that we have been watching for the last few weeks.
“I really hope it continues – as much as a viewer as someone who’s in it,” Tudor said.
“It explores things that I’ve personally not seen on screen before, and it raises a lot of questions. In the first series, there were a couple of things where I thought, ‘Ooh, what about that?’ and ‘What if that happened?’
“I think the writers have got a lot more they want to tell, that’s all I’m going to say!”
When ‘Humans’ launched over a month ago on Channel 4 it became the channels highest rated drama of the last 20 years. For his part in the show Tudor had a gut feeling that the series would prove popular with the mainstream audience.
“Sci-fi can be a cult genre,” he said. “But with this, I think it’s so much about the relationships that it moves way beyond sci-fi.
“I think also it plugs into fears that everyone has. These ‘Synths’ are so eerily human, it really raises the question of what it means to be human – and that’s a massive question.”
A second series of ‘Humans’ is “very much under consideration”, according to Channel 4’s head of international drama.
“We’ve got a story that is told over a great many episodes and is very much designed to come back and return,” said Simon Maxwell. “We’ll be following those characters on a really epic journey.”
