Fox Scraps Almost Human (It's Canceled)

Nooooooooooooo!!! Fox has canceled its sci-fi robo-buddy cop show Almost Human after one season, says Deadline, which kind of comes as a surprise to me, because just last week I was thinking it had a decent shot at renewal.

If you need to point fingers, go ahead and blame everyone who didn't watch it and shame them accordingly. But you should really be blaming Kevin Bacon and The Following, which eked out a Season 3 renewal even after it sunk to a fourth-place finish in its time slot with its Season 2 finale. Okay, it may be a bit harsh to blame The Following, as Fox also has several promising pilots on its hands, and everything is jockeying for limited schedule space—especially since Fox doesn't program the 10pm hour. 

For me, Almost Human ended up being one of the season's biggest disappointments, because its impressive trailer, which debuted at last year's Upfronts, looked awesome. It didn't help that Fox aired several episodes out of order, or that the focus of the show often strayed from the most interesting parts of the series—the relationship between Kennex and Dorian and the idea of artificial intelligence—in favor of more procedural-y stories. But that doesn't mean the news isn't disheartening for sci-fi fans. 

If you want to get even more upset over Almost Human's cancellation, consider this zinger from Deadline: "Elsewhere in Fox bubble land, the renewal chances for Seth MacFarlane-produced freshman comedy Dads appear to have gone up in the past few days." Whaaaaaaaaaat? 


Will you miss Almost Human?

Please bring back Almost Human. My husband and I loved that show and was very disappointed it was canceled. The show, The following, I had/Have no desire to watch. That show needs to be canceled so Almost Human can come back on. AT least I get to watch the re-runs on the Elray channel at 6:00 and 7:00am. I don't understand why it was canceled in the first place. Please bring it back. Screw The Following and other shows that replaced it.

Fox killed yet another amazing tv show, and left viewers on a cliffhanger, while reality TV trash continues. Firefly all over again. The only difference is this time I watched and I waited with such hope for season 2. I know I'll never give a penny to fox with the way they keep this crap up.

I want this show back too, as it was entertaining all the time.

It ended with big plot hole like "The wall" etc. which would also add alot of more meat to the series.

Typical. I had a look to see when the second series was to be aired and found out it had been cancelled. Why? It was by far more entertaining than the other dross out there. I always had it in my planner and looked forward to it, with it's excellent comedic dryness and hi-tech storylines. Fox, you have got this one wrong

Bring it back! I am watching the series again. I just do not understand FOX and WHY they continue to cancel good shows. How does that boost their bottom line? Why is this station so obsessed with cancelling sci fi, yet keeps airing them?

Wow. Fox Made one of the Best shows Ever seen before "Terra Nova" And Now they have made "Almost Human" and yet again Cancelled it because they lost viewers towards The end. The truth is the only reason they lost there viewers in the final 3 episodes is because they started airing them in wrong order and changing times. If they made a second season And Used proper coordination they would have such a huge Fan base. This show did have a story to it though they thought it didnt. (PLEASE RENEW) Even as a surprise then they would get a bunch of viewers for the surprise renewal out of nowhere.

Seriously, I've been hitting Hulu Plus for about 3 months , once a week, checking for new episodes. Fox lost some points. Perhaps maybe you should put "NO MORE NEW EPISODES" over your products so we don't have to find out the news 8 months later from a third party. FOX YOU SUCK.

This is why I generally do not watch Fox. They cancel every sci-fi show they bother to put on in one season. It is a pattern with them. I will not set myself up anymore though, I am through with this network.

Very short-sighted, if not downright stupid, of Fox. It was a very entertaining program, certainly better -- much, MUCH better -- than the crap "Intelligence" on CBS (which also got cancelled - good call on that one).

Maybe the SyFy channel can pick it up?

Agreed better than many, certainly better than that rubbish Marvel's Shield which was OK for little league viewers but Almost Human should go back into production, big fan base here in the UK.

FOX = dont do scify shows you are gonna kill them anyways, leave those scrips to ppl that actually care for scify. The show was pretty good, with decent FXs, and a potential story. But... lets just shoot some reality show instead or more lobotomized cartoons.

This is really too bad. There isn't much on TV that I like, but Almost Human was a gem. I probably didn't help that I watched most episodes online. I wish FOX would have given this excellent series more time to catch on. I hope that some other network picks the show up.

Its all about money/viewers.. There are far more people who would rather watch COOKING/REALITY shows than quality shows like almost human. This reflects the lack of intelligence in the audience as very little thought is required. Provoking LAZY attitudes towards TV programs.

If it sells.....get some dumbass to watch it...

Not a lot of.original programmes left and very little Sci Fi worth watching, love almost human. Please reconsider a 2nd series, so many other programmes that are rubbish seem to get a 2nd.even.3rd.series do give almost human a 2nd series.and advertise it better to get the viewers.

Almost Human one of the best shows on tv. Another strike out for FOX. Not many other decent shows left to cancel on that network. Go CBS.

They ran the episodes of Firefly out of order, then cancelled that excellent series. They are still not to be trusted, I see. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water and all that. I am sorry that Almost Human will not be returning.

This why I hate Fox they always cancel the good shows. I should have known better than to start watching another new show on Fox. I guess they needed to make space for another stupid singing and dancing program. That is what happened to Human Target and Lie to Me they canceled them to make room that junk.

This is pure B.S. They cancel an interesting and original show, and air cramp like "I wanna Marry Harry"!.. Are they serious?! Who's making the executive decisions over there? Instead of canceling shows that have potential in their very first season, they need to fire all of the executives that have continually proven themselves to be incompetent. There are plenty of series that have had a slow start but went on to achieve greatness. We need to start a petition. If Roswell can get renewed by simply sending in Tabasco sauce bottles, we should be able to get a few extra seasons by sending in something. Old VCR parts, action figure legs, Post-its, pictures of Michael Ealy's eyes (that'll get a rise out of them lol) something. Someone has to be wise enough to pick this show up. We cannot allow this to be another Firefly

Yeah I'll miss it. I'm actually surprised it was canceled because for me it was a very engaging story with good, solid expanding web of character development. Some great story arcs were started, such as the crazy dude who designed Dorian apparently starting up his own robot army. A lot of anticipation was generated over this 'wall', and what it was about. Was looking forward to seeing that explained at some point. Then there was the clearly unfinished business between the cop dude (name is escaping me at present) and his ex girlfriend who sold him out to the crime syndicate. A lot of fresh stories were told through the medium of this show, even if some were revisited (the homing missile bullets from "Runaway"). Overall a very good show that wasn't given the time it deserved to come into its own.

Fox is so predictable it's painful. They canceled yet another great SciFi show with huge potential by purposely sabotaging it. It's as if Fox has a serious issue with SciFi that they go out of their way to disrespect it, or maybe they just don't respect their viewers enough.
Karl Urban and Michael Ealy were doing an outstanding job. The stories were interesting and their comedic timing perfect. I am going to seriously miss this show. It made Mondays bearable.
I only hope another network has the foresight to pick it up.

You'd think Fox would have learned their lesson to never air their sci-fi shows out of order and then bin 'em.
Almost Human move in 2016 ?

Can't say I'm surprised, it's FOX, after all. I give up on their Sci-fi shows, no matter how much like the concept, because I know they won't get a fair shot. Almost Human had its weak points, but I think it deserved another shot.
