AMC announced today that its anthology series, Soulmates, has been renewed for a second season. Set fifteen years into the future, the series, written by Will Bridges (Stranger Things, Black Mirror) and Brett Goldstein (Ted Lasso), explores the nature of romantic love. With new scientific advancements that can change the lives of everyone, there is now a test that can unequivocally tell you who your soulmate is.
In a statement to the press, Dan McDermott, President of Original Programming for AMC Networks Entertainment Group/co-president of AMC Studios said:
We were immediately drawn to the unique premise of Soulmates as it explores love and relationships from several touchpoints in a way that naturally feeds the zeitgeist, prompting conversations around human connection, relationships and happiness, these are stories and themes that resonate and feel almost timely given today’s climate in which so many of us feel disconnected or are coping with shifting relationship dynamics. We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Will and Brett who never fail to deliver the very best in high-caliber, imaginative storytelling.
Season one of Soulmates debuts Sunday, October 5 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT on AMC.
