Almost Human is an action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. The year is 2048. Meet John Kennex a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can't remember much - except that his partner was killed; his girlfriend, Anna Moore, left him after the attack; and he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage. Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the "psychological rejection of his synthetic body part," John returns to work at the behest of longtime ally Captain Sandra Maldonado. By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician Rudy Lom introduces John to Dorian, a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these "flaws" that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian's understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them. As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, including the eager and somewhat starstruck Detective Valerie Stahl and the distrustful Detective Richard Paul, who does not welcome John back with open arms. Almost Human will follow the week-to-week missions of John and Dorian, as they fight crime across this futuristic landscape, while the mysteries surrounding his attack and the larger mythology of this new world unfold.

In 2048 the mankind’s success in robotechnics bears dramatic results. Having learned how to create completely functioning androids people add them to the rows of common policemen and trust the protection of civilians to the sophisticated technologies. As a result of a dangerous skirmish Detective John Kennex, a policeman of flesh and blood, is gravely wounded and is under coma for 17 months. After regaining conscience John discovers a lot of new things: after that skirmish he lost his leg and acquired a hi tech prosthesis. But returning back to his duties does not bode well for him. Now to every policeman - human an android is attached, whereas John, who suffered from this heartless machine, doesn’t want to run together. But it turns out to be not so bad, when John gets a new mate – model DNR, defective android, that is programmed to feel. One is able to rely on it and John is going to get used to changes… This action-packed series will cut its viewers to the heart!
