TV News: Fox Axes ALMOST HUMAN

Written by Paul Mount Wednesday, 30 April 2014

TV News

ALMOST HUMAN, the sci-fi drama created by J.J. Abrams and starring Karl (DREDD, STAR TREK) Urban and Michael Ealy as a human cop and his combat android partner, has been cancelled by Fox after just one thirteen episode series. Its credentials alone made ALMOST HUMAN, which premiered in the States last November, a ‘one to watch’ show but following a strong debut rating of 9.1 million viewers, figures have fallen throughout the run with 5.6 million tuning in for March’s final episode.

The figures in themselves haven’t been disastrous but Fox has already-renewed a number of other popular dramas (BONES, THE FOLLOWING) and announced a number of new pilot episodes (such as the much-anticipated GOTHAM) so it appears that there simply wasn’t room in Fox’s upcoming schedule for another season of a show which hadn’t taken off as might have been expected. However, Starburst suspects there’ll be at least six new J.J. Abrams-produced TV series along before teatime. 

UK viewers will finally get to see ALMOST HUMAN when it airs on Sky 1 from May 6th at 9pm.

Indeed it does. Congrats on spotting my slightly-late April Fool. (Slopes off, shamefaced, to read book called 'Basic Research and How To Do It' by I Checkum).

It airs in the UK on 'Watch' not 'Sky One.

Will they be shown in the right order or are they going to stick to the order Fox decided to broadcast them in?
