Finding the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with can be a daunting task but what if there was a simple, yet accurate test that could tell you exactly who you'll fall in love with. This is the premise behind AMC's new anthology series Soulmates and we have all the details on how you can watch the show on TV or online.
Set 15 years in the future, Soulmates is set in a world where science has made a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet through a test that unequivocally tells you who your soulmate is. The six episode anthology series is based on the short film "For Life" that was created by the show's Emmy-Award winning writer Will Bridges and Brett Goldstein. Expect for Soulmates to draw some similarities to Black Mirror as Bridges also wrote for the show and even won an Emmy for its USS Callister episode.
As Soulmates is an anthology series made up of six different stories, each episode of the show will feature an entirely different cast with some notable cast members including The OA's Kinglsey Ben-Adir, Breaking Bad's David Costable, Humans' Sonya Cassidy, Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch's Sandra Teles.
Despite the fact that the first episode of Soulmates has yet to air, AMC has already renewed the anthology series for a second season. Bridges and Goldstein are already working on the second season which will likely premiere next year.
Whether you're a fan of Bridges' past work on Black Mirror or are just looking from some sci-fi escapism, we'll show you exactly how to watch Soulmates from anywhere in the world.
Soulmates - When and where?
AMC's new anthology series Soulmates will premiere on Monday, October 5 at 10pm ET/PT. New episodes of the show will air weekly at the same time and there will be a total of six episodes in the first season of the show.
