What Fans Think About the Series
On the other hand, though the series promises an interesting plot, there are fans who are left traumatized with Fox cancelling news in previous occasions. Adding on, many commenters expressed their doubt that on the series future fate under the same network who is known for cancelling shows with the same genre.
Fans opened up about their views regarding APB. They talked about how impressive the series looks like. But here’s the catch, the fans also pointed out that the network once aired a story (Almost Human) similar to this but they eventually cancelled it. Now, they are worried that maybe the show will face the same fate.
One fan said in Fox released trailer on YouTube, “Fox did a similar science fiction series on police sometime back. (Almost Human) They cancelled it. I guess they’re not really into sci-fi we’ll see what happens with this series.”
“Let’s see if they don’t cut it short like they did with Almost Human or whatever it was called.”-Bruh
“I like shows like this. I hope they don’t cancel it like the did with “Almost Human” and “Intelligence”. So I am a bit afraid I will like this show then nada after season 1.” -OtaconAlonsus
Another fan said this series will be either really good or lame. But on the other hand, there are still who is hoping for the best.
APB premieres on February 6, 2017.
