Fox Cancels “Almost Human” Series

The network upfronts are almost here and so final decisions are being made as to the fate of ‘on the bubble’ shows.

Fox came down with the decision today to NOT pick up a second season of its J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi cop procedural drama “Almost Human,” effectively cancelling the Karl Urban and Michael Ealy starrer.

The first season only had so-so ratings, but was performing on par with its Monday companion series “The Following” which has already been renewed for a third season thanks to better DVR performance.

Adding to its fate was that all three of the network’s new drama pilots – “Gotham,” “The Red Band Society” and “Empire” – are all strong contenders for a series pickup.
