AMC’s Humans trailer shows creepy humanoid robots living among us


If you enjoy movies or shows about robots living in human society, then AMC’s new sci-fi series Humans should be on your radar. A new trailer has been released, and it has robots looking exactly like humans.

The 8-episode drama will be premiering Sunday on June 28th at 9 p.m. PT/ET.

Set in suburban London, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – a highly developed, artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart. Penned by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks,” Spooks: The Greater Good) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama “Real Humans,” the series explores the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred. This bold new series is produced in conjunction with the UK’s Channel 4 and Kudos, the makers of “Utopia” and “Broadchurch.”

Humans stars William Hurt (Dark City, AI) as Dr. George Millican, Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) as Laura Hawkins, Gemma Chan (Sherlock, Dr. Who) as Anita, Tom Goodman-Hill (The Imitation Game) as Joe Hawkins, Lucy Carless as Mattie Hawkins, Colin Morgan (Merlin) as Leo, Pixie Davis (The White Queen) as Sophie Hawkins, Ivanno Jeremiah as Max, Theo Stevenson (Fred Claus) as Toby Hawkins, Emily Berrington (24: Live Another Day) as Niska, Neil Maskell (Utopia) as D.S. Peter Drummond, Will Tudor (Game of Thrones) as Odi, Rebecca Front as Vera, Danny Webb (Dr. Who, Being Human) as Hobb, and Sope Dirisu (Utopia) as Fred.
