Several months on from the events of series one, Niska (Emily Berrington) is still at large and in possession of the consciousness code. Her ‘synth family’, Leo (Colin Morgan), Max (Ivanno Jeremiah) and Mia (Gemma Chan), unaware of her location, are each trying to find their place in the world while Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) and Laura (Katherine Parkinson) attempt to mend their marriage. As unconfirmed reports of synths behaving inexplicably surface, the ripple effects of one simple yet seismic decision sees the past return dramatically and surprisingly to the door of the Hawkins house. Joe, Laura and the entire family are faced with a difficult choice that will put the family under an intense spotlight. Meanwhile in the US, Milo Khoury (series newcomer – Marshall Allman), a young Silicon Valley billionaire and CEO of a leading technology company is pioneering new research. But he needs help and attempts to recruit Dr Athena Morrow (series newcomer – Carrie-Anne Moss) – the country’s pre-eminent Artificial Intelligence expert. Suspicious of his motives and focussed on her own work, Morrow is single-minded in her drive to create a new kind of machine consciousness.
As an emerging form of intelligent life – the synths – and an established one – humanity – fight for their places in the world, a thrilling multi-stranded narrative evolves which continues to ask: who has the right to determine what it means to be alive?
