The new animated sci-fi series Pantheon premieres on Thursday, September 1, on AMC+. The series follows bullied teen Maddie (voiced by Katie Chang) as she begins to receive mysterious online messages from someone claiming to be her deceased father, David (Daniel Dae Kim). She discovered he is now an “UI” or Uploaded Intelligence: his human consciousness was uploaded to the Cloud prior to his death. It turns out he’s not the only one, and she soon discovers an complex global conspiracy that could threaten a very different type of world war.
Based on a collection of award-winning writer Kenneth Liu’s short stories, Pantheon hits on some of the near-future-possible themes of shows like Black Mirror and, more closely, Prime Video’s Upload, exploring the intersection of humanity and technology. Can the human consciousness live online and outlive the human body? The voice cast also includes Paul Dano, Aaron Eckhart, Rosemarie DeWitt, Taylor Schilling, William Hurt, and more.
In addition to streaming on AMC+, the series will also be featured on AMC’s newly-acquired anime streaming service HIDIVE. Read on to learn how to watch Pantheon.
