TV show description:
This sci-fi police drama takes place 35 years into the future, in the year 2048. It’s a world in which police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) is a cop who’s survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. He wakes up after a 17-month coma. He can’t remember much — except that his partner was killed. He’s lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage. He suffers from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the “psychological rejection of his synthetic body part.”

John returns to work at the encouragement of his longtime ally, Captain Sandra Maldonado (Lili Taylor). Every cop must now be paired with a robot and, despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is no exception.

He’s partnered with a battle-ready MX-43 model. He abruptly terminates this pairing after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. As a result, technician Rudy Lom (Mackenzie Crook) introduces John to Dorian (Michael Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses.

Although these responses were deemed flaws, it’s these “flaws” that John relates to Dorian most — John is part-machine and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian’s understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them.

As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, like the sharp and insightful human intelligence analyst Detective Valerie Stahl (Minka Kelly) and Detective Richard Paul (Michael Irby), a distrustful man who doesn’t welcome John back with open arms.

Series Finale

Episode #13 – Straw Man
Kennex and Dorian revisit the past when a string of murders are similar to those committed by a serial killer who was put in jail by Kennex’s father. Dorian gets his first performance review after being reactivated.
First aired: March 3, 2014.

This was a really good show,and like the others I don’t understand why it would be cancelled. The network needs to reexamine how they pick which shows get cancelled. This was a bad decision.

This is bull carp this was a good show and I was looking forward for more. You network need to be kicked in the ass. The reality show you make suck so stop making them and leave the good shows alone. >:(

I can’t believe that this show was cancelled and we are left with all of those reality shows which are all based on reality???? Whose reality??? the big honchos…. Yeah! like the average person can relate to them….so pleaaaaaaaaaase leave “Almost Human” on, at least we don’t know what might happen in the future; and that is the Reality!

Why would you cancel this show? It was one of the better shows on TV! You cancel it and these dumb reality shows like utopia and american Idol stay on TV?… Not to mention you keep family guy, the Simpsons, Bobs Burgers….. All of these shows suck….Almost human was something you could actually watch is something that could actually take place in the not so distant future…it had a good story line….you should really consider bringing it back

Michael November 19, 2014 at 9:25 pm

That was one of the best shows out there for its time and was looking forward to the next season.

It was a great show! What was FOX thinking. I hope it comes back.


David November 18, 2014 at 4:29 pm

I agree with the above comments. We live reality everyday, have to deal with attorneys, judges and police in every day life. When I set down to relax I want to see shows that do not remind me of the everyday rat race.

I am hoping to see the show come back. I enjoyed watching the show. I also cant believe that this show was cancelled and ALL of the reality shows are on forever and they keep adding more.


Grambo November 14, 2014 at 3:51 pm

I looking for it to restart again. Why is it that he good shows get cancelled and the stupid reality shows get renewed? I did enjoy watching this show.


Larry Wilson November 16, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Been looking forward to seeing the show again. One of our favorites. Can’t believe it’s been cancelled. What’s wrong with the network???? Maybe they want more fake reality shows.
