SDCC 2013: Bad Robot’s Almost Human looks to please Fringe fans

July 20th, 2013 by Christopher Williams Comments

Fans of Fringe rejoice, you have not been forgotten about! The new Bad Robot show Almost Human made its debut at Comic Con followed by a Q&A with stars Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Lili Taylor, Minka Kelly and executive producers J.H. Wyman and Naren Shankar.

During the Q&A segment Wyman said his inspiration for the show came from “wanting to make Fringe fans happy…it has a lot of the great things that Fringe had in it. It’s going to be something different but something special.” This came before Wyman made an open casting call for all Fringe cast alums.

I really can’t wait for this show to air now as the report states those that got to view the pilot gave it massive applause when it was finished. Now my thing is, can this show take place in the same universe as Fringe? Sure it would be great to see Anna Torv or Jasika Nicole show up for an episode or a story arc, but how much cooler would it be if Olivia or Astrid stopped by instead. The guys at Bad Robot are super clever and inventive which is the main reason why I love the projects that come out of Abrams’ studio, I know they can find a way to make it work! When Bad Robot is involved anything is possible.

Almost Human premieres Monday, November 4th at 8:00pm eastern on FOX. Here’s the official trailer.
