In a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a 'Synth' - a highly-developed robotic servant that's so similar to a real human it's transforming the way we live. In the hope of transforming the way they live, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences.
There will be no fourth season of AMC and Channel 4 series Humans. The news was posted on social media by creators Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, who expressed their sadness about it ending, as well as their gratitude for the fans and those that worked on the show. It has been nearly one year since its third and now-final season aired.
Co-produced by AMC in the states and Channel 4 in Britain, Humans takes place in a world where highly intelligent consumer-level androids, aka synths, are commonplace in society. They are so similar to their live counterparts that the technology is drastically transforming people's lives - in both good ways and bad.
