‘Almost Human’ has been cancelled by FOX. The robot cop drama from mastermind J.J. Abrams has been entirely pulled, after just 13 episodes.

Even J.J. Abrams couldn’t save this one! Almost Human was a fan-favorite hit, but the ratings didn’t hold up to afford the sci-fi series a second season. Minka KellyKarl Urban and Michael Ealy starred.

‘Almost Human’ Entirely Cancelled

Almost Human started off strongly when it premiered in November 2013 with over nine million viewers, but the ratings struggled throughout its first season and couldn’t hold up against the Monday night competition.

FOX has pulled the plug on the futuristic sci-fi drama, which starred Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, as troubled detective Kennex and android robo-cop Dorian, respectively. Set in the year 2048, the two partners are paired together in their Los Angeles police unit. Minka Kelly was also a series regular, appearing as Detective Valerie Stahl, alongside Mackenzie CrookMichael Irby and Lili Taylor.

By the series’ March 3, 2014 finale, ratings dropped to 5.6 million viewers, scoring just a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

J.J. Abrams was the executive producer on the series with J.H. Wyman who served as the series creator. J.J. is also at the helm of RevolutionPerson of Interest and Believe, which are all currently on air.

We’re sorry to see Almost Human go, but we’re certain that J.J. will be just fine — he’s also directing Star Wars: Episode VII!

HollywoodLifers, are you sad to see Almost Human cancelled so soon? Let us know!

I am so “ticked” by the cancellation of Almost Human. This was a very good series. Good Actors and action. Made you think! If it doesn’t have extreme sexual scenes or innuendos, vampires, witches, zombies, or demons it does not stand a chance! It was the only thing I ever watched on Monday nights. I guess I’ll get the “bored” games out again.

This is ridiculous! I love Almost Human! I love both Michael and Karl. I am so glad I bought all of the episodes on my iPod! Just hope that they can make a freaking come back since they decided to leave us with a cliffhanger!

It was a great new show and would have done well if it had gotten any support at all from the network.
