We included AMC’s Humans in our 2015 spotlight on British TV shows we’re looking forward to, and it’s almost here.
Humans kicks off this June, set in an alternate near future where household robot servants are as common as today’s iPhone.
Merlin’s Colin Morgan co-stars opposite Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) and Oscar-winning American actor William Hurt (Damages).
