Humans 3 eyes autumn filming
The third series of acclaimed sci-fi drama Humans is now in pre-production in the UK readying for an early autumn start to filming.
The show is based on the Swedish drama known internationally as Real Humans and explores themes of artificial intelligence and human-robot interaction.
The UK version comes from Kudos, AMC and Channel 4 and made its debut in June 2015, winning several awards that year including the gong for Best British TV Drama Writing at the British Screenwriters’ Awards.
As with the first two series, the third will comprise 8 x 60 and will film over five months. Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent return as lead writers.
They will also executive produce alongside Derek Wax and Emma Kingsman-Lloyd for Kudos in association with Wild Mercury Productions, and Lars Lundstrom and Henrik Widman for Matador Film. Vicki Delow produces for Kudos.
