First Look at Gemma Chan in 'Humans'

AMC's upcoming sci-fi drama series is about robots in the parallel present.

In addition to our first look at Daniel Wu in Into the Badlands, during the season five finale of The Walking Dead, AMC also offered a quick glimpse of Gemma Chan in the upcoming sci-fi drama series Humans.

The eight-part series, based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama Real Humans, is set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a 'Synth' -- a highly developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart. It looks like Gemma Chan plays the "upgrade you've been waiting for."

Here's the teaser:

That's rather creepy. In Humans, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences. I have to ask: 1) How many episodes before the Synth becomes too intelligent and rebels against its masters? 2) How long before someone attempts to have an inappropriate relationship with a robot? Dude, you know someone is going to try.

Written by Sam Vincent and Jonthan Brackley, Humans stars William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Colin Morgan, Rebecca Front, Neil Maskell and Gemma Chan.

Humans premieres this summer on AMC.
