Almost Human: To Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Two?

Almost Human canceled or season twoThis evening marks the season finale of Almost Human on FOX. Will it also be the last episode? Should this sci-fi series be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

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

The show debuted on a Sunday in mid-November and drew a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.18 million total viewers. It was a very healthy start, thanks in part to the fact that it had an NFL game as a lead-in. The numbers dropped more than 26% for episode two on the following night.

Over the course of the season, Almost Human’s ratings have been on the decline and now seem to have settled around a 1.6 in the demo with about 5.5 million viewers. That’s a far cry from its premiere.

While the show’s chances for a renewal could certainly be better, they could be worse too. Overall, the FOX schedule is in pretty sorry shape so that could spell good news for Almost Human. They’ve had lousy luck with new shows and some older shows have lost a lot of steam so the execs may be hesitant to cancel this one.

The decision will likely come down to how confident they feel about the network’s new dramas but I suspect Almost Human will get a 13 episode renewal for next year.

But, what do you think? Do you like Almost Human on FOX? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

    I can’t believe it. I agree with the person who said that everytime there is a good show they cancel it but they keep the crap reality shows.

    My bruh and I really liked that show especially since it had some great actors in it like Karl Urban and Micheal Ealy, so hot, and Lili Taylor, my bruh is also picky about the shows he watches but enjoyed the show, he said that if that’s what the future likes then he can’t wait for the future and nor can’t I lol, we’re really hopeing the network reconsiders and brings them back for another season, the hell with football, we’d watch them over any football game

    Why is it that every time I find a show that all 3 generations, that live in ‘y house, like some executive at some network cancels it. Almost Human was (is) a great show that another network really needs to take a chance on. Unless one of that actors has a new commitment, it’s never too late!
