FOX CANCELS ALMOST HUMAN

Not a Surprise

On the same day that Bad Robot and JJ Abrams celebrated the Star Wars: Episode VII cast announcement, FOX canceled Almost Human. The Sci-Fi series that was produced by Abrams and Fringe’s J.H. Wyman will not return for a second season. The series, which took place in the 2014 featured a human cop, Karl Urban, and his robot partner, Michael Ealy. 

Does this come has any surprise to those of us that know FOX’s track record with Sci-Fi television shows? We here at Mania are sad to see the series go. We did our best to promote the show with updates and reviews. One member of our writing staff described it as Kirk and Spock, but as cops. Michael Ealy is now on our radar, thanks to the show. Hopefully, this will also allow Karl Urban more time to get another Judge Dredd film made. If anything, he is our first choice for Jessie Custer in the up coming Preacher TV series.

Fox pulled a total Firefly on this one. Airing the episodes out of order caused the show's narrative to be lost. Crap!

Never watched this show but it never really seemed like something that would make it on one of the big networks.  Another Judge Dredd movie would be cool though.  The first one was better than I expected.

Booooooooo.

No more Minka Kelly? :(

Good one Rogue 188! Hey Rob, every time Fox cancels a good show, use Rogue188's  comment..."Fox pulled a total Firefly on this one"

I didn't think it was as good as The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but it certainly deserved another season, and having the episodes shown in order. Fox sucks.

Very true, Iridan. The series certainly deserved another season. Hate to see a good series get cancelled. Hopefully, it'll get picked up by the Syfy network.

Shocking.  Fans get Firefly'd again.  I really liked this show, even with the episodes being shown out of order.

Yeah, can't say we didn't see this coming.  I just hope another network sees the potential and picks it up.

 I really dug it too...I thought it borrowed heavily from a lot of Phillip K. Dick stuff, but it borrowed well, IMO.  So WHO'S excited about FOX airing that "Gotham" show?  How many episodes before it gets canned?

 Ugh.  I really enjoyed this show.  This is the first fox show that I have been "fireflied" on.  Gave up on SCC after season one, couldn't stand it.
