Humans will survive. AMC — along with British producing partners Channel 4 and Kudos — are bringing back the acclaimed drama series for a second season. Humans will get another eight episodes, which will go into production next year.

“As one of the year’s top new cable series, Humans has been embraced by fans and critics across the U.S. and U.K.,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC. “We’re looking forward to continuing this very captivating story and further exploring the show’s parallel, Synth-filled world that hits so disturbingly close to home.”

Written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and based on a Swedish sci-fi drama called Real Humans, the series explores advancing technology and artificial intelligence.
