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 Like Almost Human. I wish for a second season.

I just heard that FOX was cancelling this show. No, please say it isn’t so. This is such an awesome show. I really enjoy all the advanced tech. Please do season two. Is this because JJ Abrams (love his work) is too busy?

It would be a wise decision on FOX Network’s behalf to renew the show “Almost Human.” Looking at your lineup, let’s just face it, you have some pretty lousy shows and you have a great show that you are canceling that could drastically improve your ratings. This is the best cop show that has been on any network with a great cast. You have three shows that are keeping your network afloat, along with Almost Human, you also have The Following and Sleepy Hollow which, coincidently, were all close in ratings. You renewed The Following and Sleepy Hollow but not Almost Human. What is it that your network is seeing that your fans are not to have you want to cancel the best show on your network? Do your Network and fans a favor and do not cancel ALMOST HUMAN!!!

Almost Human is an exciting adult show with excellant writing and acting. Shows which should be canceled: Bones acting writing poor; CSI/NCIS fake show; Hell’s Kicthen & Mastercheif Jr, yelling a poor example of communication for Adults/Children/Adolescents, nothing (+) about the shows.

This is one of the best shows I have seen In a long time and
If it is not renewed for a second season I will shun Fox for ever!!
Great blend of sci fi and humour and will only get better. the
Interaction between human /cyborg partners is ground breaking
Please keep this running

Fox is notorious for cancelling good shows. Almost Human is great – come on Fox – tell your PR department to get off its ample derriere and promote it, not only on Fox but on the other networks as well. It’s called advertising.


Kenneth Sanders June 3, 2014 at 9:13 am

Why cancel the show? Are you idiots? Great show and without remorse or calculation, this show should be renewed.


betty west May 30, 2014 at 4:37 pm

almost human was the best show of the season. put it back on.


Diana V Hirahara May 28, 2014 at 7:44 pm

Give it a second season and a chance. I want to know more about the wall. Plenty of other programs with half the content and ideas that shouldn’t be on air-let it breath.


Quejay May 28, 2014 at 1:53 pm

If Fox can’t recognize good programing then eff them. Sci-Fi Network should pick this up!


Rob Gore June 13, 2014 at 1:58 am

I agree. It would make a great scifi show, but if Fox has any brains at all, they will listen to the fans unlike A&E with cancelling The Glades, not to mention, on a cliffhanger.

Anyway, Fox. do your job and earn your paycheck!! Advertizing!!!!!

I dont know if anybody realizes or not, but Karl Urban is also the one who did the Dredd 3D. and was awesome at it!!!
