Last week it was revealed that Carrie-Anne Moss and ‘Prison Break‘s’ Marshall Allman were joining the cast of ‘Humans’ and will be regulars on the second season of the show, which recently began filming.
These new additions to the cast are all part of telling a bigger and more ambitious story.
Tom Goodman-Hill – who plays Joe Hawkins on the hit series told Digital Spy that these new characters are very important pieces in expanding the ‘Humans’ universe.
“They form part of what is a huge story – much opened out from what we saw in series one… and that’s as much as I can tell you about that!” he hinted.
The second series will pick the story up just two weeks from where season one left off. Goodman-Hill revealed that he only knows what is happening in the first few episodes of the new series.
“The cast don’t know as much as the writers do about where this series is going,” he explained. “They’re letting us know when they’re happy to let us know – which is fine.
“We only know what happens up to about halfway [through series two] and beyond that, we’ve got some ideas, but we’re working on a need-to-know basis.”
One thing we do know is that Goodman-Hill’s character of Joe will be on a path to redemption after having reprogrammed Anita for his own selfish needs and also having informed on the Androids when they contacted his family for help.
‘Humans’ is up for best Drama Series and the Audience Award at this year’s BAFTA TV Awards.
The 2016 House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards will take place at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Sunday, May 8.
