Almost Human, starring Star Trek into Darkness‘ Karl Urban, will not be returning for a second season.
The sci-fi police drama was co-created by J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman.
Almost Human was “an action-packed police drama set thirty-five years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely connection is forged when a cop with an aversion to robots and a robot with unexpected emotional responses investigate cases in a brave new world.”
Urban took on the role of “hardened detective” John Kennex is the short-lived series.
The series started out with strong ratings (9.2 million viewers and 3.1 rating in the coveted 18-49 year old adult demographic range) but viewership dropped as the season progressed.
There was an uptick in ratings for last month’s finale, but it was not enough to save the show.
