This is actually me asking Karl about a possible second season of Almost Human during his Saturday Q&A at ‘Destination Star Trek’. Please excuse my shaky voice, horrible stammering and German accent lol, I was extremely nervous and somehow all my good vocabulary was gone the second I got the microphone! Anyway, hope you enjoy! (And many thanks to karlurbaninternational who sat on the chair next to me and encouraged me to ask the question!)
Me: “Hello, I have a really small question. Will there be a second season of Almost Human? Can you say anything to that? Cause it’s a really great show and really funny. The car scenes they show with Dorian and John are amazing. So will there be a second season? Say yes, please!”
Karl Urban: “Thank you, thank you. I don’t know! Is my answer to that question. I don’t know. We haven’t been told. But I’m humbled and I’m honored that you really enjoy the show, thank you very much. I’m glad that you enjoy the car scenes. The great thing about Almost Human - we’re shooting that in Vancouver and all the producers were down in Los Angeles and they didn’t come up to visit us at all. Apart from the pilot. So consequently we kind of, in a rugby term, grabbed the ball and ran with it. We would do one version of a take that was on the page and then we would improvise. And particularly in those car scenes a lot of the stuff that I think that you are responding to is stuff that Michael and I improvised. We had so much fun working on it and really, you know, looking to inject that chemistry, the humor, and take it to places you not necessarily expect a network television show to go. And thankfully the guys at Bad Robot were up for it. A lot of material that you see on that show is actually improvised by Michael and myself.”
I ❤ the fact that those car scenes contain so much improvisation. That’s just proof that those guys have great chemistry. LOVE!
