As the fate of “Almost Human” hangs in the balance, one of its two main stars, Karl Urban, says if the show doesn’t get picked up for a second season, he likely won't be returning to TV as a series regular.
Urban addressed fans at the Salt Lake Comic Con FanX this weekend, where he first expressed his gratefulness for the show. “I love working on ‘Almost Human’,” he told an excited crowd. “I love working with Michael Ealy and that crew. We literally had a lot of fun [in season one].”
But he also says working in television has proved to be tough for his family.
“Television is a different beast,” he says. “It’s hard work. We were working six days a week, sometimes 17 hours a day. I didn’t get to see my family – at all, in six months. So if ‘Almost Human’ doesn’t go ahead, I’d be more inclined to say, “You know what? I am going to go for balance in my life at this point. I’m going to go be with my family.”
Urban has built a successful movie career, acting in two "Lord of the Rings" installments, the "Star Trek" prequels (a third film is still to come), "The Chronicles of Riddick," "Red" and "Dredd." He also has two movies set for release later this year.
But it is possible Urban may yet have to deal with the grueling TV schedule. TV Wise reports the chance of "Almost Human" getting renewed is picking up steam as industry buzz around the show heats up.
