Humans Season 2 is slated to premiere in summer 2016, but the series could be in cancellation peril by the turn of the year, if Channel 4 is privatized.
Broadcast reports that a decision over whether to privatize the broadcaster could be made by January, with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in the midst of a formal process.
Channel 4’s finances are being examined as part of the process to decide whether it should be privatized, and the broadcaster will have to answer questions relating to how a privately owned Channel 4 might function were it allowed to have in-house production.
While Humans is a co-production with AMC, which airs the show in the US, the loss of a key partner in Channel 4 could put the future of the series – including a potential third season – in doubt.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Humans…
