It has been revealed that Fox has decided to axe J.J. Abrams series Almost Human after just one season.
Deadline reported that the series “got off to a sluggish start in November but held enough ground to at least renewal consideration, often finishing on par with its Monday Companion (the already-renewed drama The Following).” They also added, “Almost Human’s chances started to slip once Fox’s drama pilots started to come in. All three of them – Gotham, The Red Band Society and Empire are considered strong contenders for a series.”
Almost Human starred Karl Urban, Minka Kelly and Michael Ealy in the sci-fi drama about a cop who is paired with a Human Android as an effort to “combat rapidly escalating crime rates in Los Angeles, 2048”.
According to Independent.co.uk, “Fox has a crammed schedule, having renewed several past series and given the green light to newcomers Backstrom, Hieroglyph and Broadchurch adaptation Gracepoint.”
As someone who is just getting into Almost Human I think that the show should be at least given a second season. However, personally, right now, I can see this series becoming like Joss Whedon’s ill-fated Firefly series, which was also axed by Fox after one season, a fan-favourite which people will re-watch for years to come.
