Sad news today. It appears FOX has opted not to pick up a second season of Almost Human, the futuristic drama starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy.This is one of my top 10 shows on TV right now.
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 pickup.
Also, it is produced by an outside studio, Warner Bros TV, which also has The Following and the sure-to-be-picked-up Batman prequel Gotham. Almost Human, about a cop (Urban) paired with a lifelike combat-model android (Ealy), comes from the Fringe team of JJ Abrams and J.H. Wyman.
