Exclusive: New ‘Humans’ Clip Shows Sophie Identifying as Synthetic

AMC’s British co-production Humans may still be flying under the radar for most, but it’s a must-see drama. It’s like a must quieter and more considered version of Westworld, where it doesn’t hinge on twists so much as character revelations. The show takes place in a world where humans are aided by AI called "synths," who look human and are programmed to act human, but only to a point — they are not conscious, so they do not feel. This leads to them being used for a variety of work, from mundane things like household tasks to dangerous jobs and (as Westworld often focused on) sex work. In its first season, Humans focused on an average family, the Hawkins, who owned a synth who helped them around the house. But this synth, Mia (Gemma Chan), then "woke up" and became conscious, and eventually found others like her as the Hawkins had to figure out if they wanted to help her or turn her in. In Season 2, the series spends its time on the idea of synth rights as the newly awake synths explore and "feel" for the first time like humans, but it also — as part of its full consideration of what a world with this kind of AI would be like — takes the time to show how humans are becoming more synth-like.

Carrie-Anne Moss and Gemma Chan Talk ‘Humans’ Season 2 and Memories from ‘The Matrix’

The first season of the British tech-drama Humans set the stage for a robot uprising. Set in a futuristic but recognizable world where artificial intelligence-fuelled humanoid robots known as "synths" are as common (and depended on) as smartphones, the series follows Mia (Gemma Chan) and her family of fellow synths on their path to freedom and self-discovery. United at last, the moment has come that they can share their gift for self-awareness with synths the world-over, and Season 2 is set to watch the dominos fall in the aftermath. With Season 2, Humans introduces a number of new faces, human and synth, and one of them is non-other than Sci-Fi royalty Carrie-Anne Moss. Nearly two decade after getting her big break in The Matrix, Moss is headed back to the realm of high-tech as Dr. Athena Morrow, a brilliant scientist and artificial intelligence researcher who is recruited to help understand the synth awakening.

AMC's Humans Is No Westworld, and That's Why It's So Good

The robot discourse has changed dramatically since the first season of Humans was on air in 2015.
