Almost Human: Cancelled by FOX, No Season Two

Almost Human canceled or season twoFOX has lowered the ax on Almost Human. The show has been cancelled after one season of 13 episodes.

Taking place in the future, Almost Human follows the partnership of a distrustful cop (Karl Urban) and an android capable of emotion (Michael Ealy). The cast also includes Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook, Michael Irby, and Lili Taylor.

The series started strongly in the ratings but the numbers declined over the course of the season. The season finale hit a series low with a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.6 million total viewers.

Almost Human was reportedly still in the running for a second season until recently. Apparently several of FOX’s new pilots are strong contenders for next season so network execs have decided to let Almost Human go.

What do you think? Did you like this series? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a second season?

FOX has a nasty habit of canceling great shows with top notch creative people behind them. Like Firefly, Almost Human is a well-written, well-crafted, well-acted program with stunning effects and plots that actually hold my interest. But, also like Firefly, you can kiss it goodbye in its current form. Hopefully, much like Joss Whedon did with Firefly, JJ Abrams will find a way to continue the franchise in movie form, although for me, that only allows for a less elaborate story. Let’s face it, FOX has no faith in science fiction.
