FOX Pushes ‘Almost Human’ Premiere Back 2 Weeks, Issues New Trailer
Among the fall offerings yet to premiere, FOX’s futuristic ‘Fringe‘-produced cop drama ‘Almost Human‘ has us itching for more, though it seems the network isn’t so keen to take us to the future just yet. Along with a brand-new trailer, the Karl Urban-starring thriller has been pushed back two weeks for a Sunday premiere on November 17, followed by another new episode on the 18. So, why the change?
Having initially scheduled the series to kickoff November 4, FOX made the last-minute change in order to use the November 17 football double-header to lead into the ‘Almost Human’ premiere, as has helped to launch ‘24‘ seasons in the past. Meanwhile, the network has issued another trailer for the futuristic new series, which pairs police officers with android partners in the line of duty.
Developed by ‘Fringe‘ team J.H. Wyman, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk, ‘Almost Human’ sees Karl Urban (‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘) take on the leading role of John Kennex, a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally following a disastrous mission that killed nine fellow officers and left him critically injured. Former ‘Common Law‘ star Michael Ealy portrays Kennex’s android partner Dorian, from a cast that includes Lili Taylor as the police captain, and co-stars Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook (‘Game of Thrones‘) and Michael Irby.
Though we’re sad to have to wait a few more weeks for the premiere, take a look at the latest ‘Almost Human’ trailer above, and tell us if you’ll tune in for FOX’s new series in the comments!
