The riveting science fiction series based on the Swedish drama Real Humans by Lars Lundstrom makes its way back to the screen on AMC’s main network. The season premiere is set for June 5th.
“One year after the dawn of consciousness, a decimated and oppressed Synth population fights to survive in a world that hates and fears them. In a divided Britain, Synths and humans struggle to broker an uneasy peace, but when fractures within the Synth community start to appear, all hope of stability is threatened. Set against the maelstrom of political chaos, the ethical complexities of the dawn of a new species play out across a thrilling multi-stranded narrative. As the Synth family, Mia (Chan), Niska (Berrington) and Max (Jeremiah) continue to battle for their right to survival, Joe (Goodman-Hill) Laura (Parkinson) and their children Mattie (Lucy Carless), Toby (Theo Stevenson) and Sophie (Pixie Davies) struggle to come to terms with the cataclysmic events of last season.”
The exploration of blurred lines between man and machine are very thought provoking and it makes you think which life form is more primitive and advanced. Machines without emotion have no racial prejudice as most of their comparisons are based on actual ability and talent; a dream of a world all humans to aspire to.
This season we will see how things play out as Sophie and her family continue to advocate for synth rights and the world of humans is about to be disrupted by the human need for all individuals to be treated equally.
