Channel 4 has announced that Humans will be coming back for a third series.

A new, eight part series has been commissioned by both Channel 4 and American channel AMC and will film later this year to air in 2018.

The second series just concluded and provided Channel 4 with some of its best ratings in year, with a consolidated average audience of 2.2 million.

Set in a parallel present, Kudos produced Humans explores what happens when the line between human and machine becomes blurred.

The final episode of series two left viewers on a thrilling cliff-hanger with questions hopefully set to be answered in series three.

Human's writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley said: "We’re thrilled to be continuing this story! The Humans audience will know that the end of series 2 changed everything.

"We can’t wait to bring this new world to life – along with the best cast in TV, our amazing partners at Kudos and two fantastically supportive broadcasters in Channel 4 and AMC."

Beth Willis, Head of Drama at Channel 4 added: “I can't wait to see what the extraordinarily talented Sam and Jon do next with this show - no doubt it will be as insightful, surprising and addictive as ever. It's a privilege to work with them, Kudos, AMC and our superb cast once again.”

Joel Stillerman, President of Original Programming and Development for AMC commented: “‘Humans' provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society. The critical response to season two celebrates the creative vision, dynamic story-telling and compelling portrayals shared by the writers, producers and actors.

"We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Channel 4 and Kudos and look forward to season three."
