FOX Cancels “Almost Human,” Show Doesn’t Score Second Season

Multiple sources confirmed that FOX will not be moving forward with a second season of “Almost Human.” The show, which aired its inaugural season finale in March, is officially cancelled.

Never a strong ratings performer, “Almost Human” nonetheless saw its odds of renewal increase when the network’s current Monday combination of “Bones” and “The Following” began to deliver similarly weak–if not worse–ratings.

Since both of those series received renewals for next season, many assumed that “Almost Human,” by virtue of its comparable ratings, would also receive an order to continue.

That order, unfortunately, did not come.

Simultaneously doubtful that “Almost Human” would enjoy significant growth in its second season and hopeful in a slate of new drama pilots, FOX opted not to reserve a spot on its schedule for the JJ Abrams-backed series.
