Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Almost Human, you almost made it.
Deadline reports has canceled the freshman sci-fi drama, which starred Karl Urban as a human police officer paired up with an android partner, played by Michael Ealy. The show came courtesy of J.J. Abrams and his partner on Fringe, Joel Wyman.
The news is a bit of a surprise, as Almost Human wasn’t a ratings disaster, even if it didn’t perform quite as well as Fox executives were surely hoping for a show stamped with the Abrams brand. But Deadline contends the network likely passed on the show for a variety of reasons, including the upcoming arrivals of new dramas like the Batman-inspired Gotham.
