No More TV for Karl Urban if "Almost Human" is Cancelled

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.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
