AMC has greenlit relationship-themed anthology series “Soulmates” for a second season ahead of its series debut on Monday, October 5. From AMC Studios, “Soulmates” is set 15 years into the future, when science has made a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet – a test that unequivocally tells you who your soulmate is.
The series is written by Will Bridges (“Stranger Things.” “Black Mirror”) and Brett Goldstein (“Ted Lasso”). It is produced by Banijay’s Fearless Minds and the series, which is set to air later this year, is based on Bridges and Goldstein’s short film “For Life.”.
Speaking at the virtual edition of the CTAM Press Tour on Friday, series co-creator Brett Goldstein explained that the origins of the show came from conversations with fellow co-creator and co-writer Will Bridges.
“We wanted to write about relationships and modern relationships,” Goldstein said. “We came up with this concept of the soulmate test. And it felt like the more we talked about it, that there’s an infinite number of stories because every single person has their own view of what love is and what love means. And just following one couple over the course of a season just felt like a waste when you could tell so many different viewpoints in different places in the world and different experiences.”
