Fox Cancels ‘Almost Family’ After One Season

The Fox drama Almost Family will not be back for a second season. The series, which starred Timothy Hutton as a fertility doctor who used his own sperm to inseminate patients, has been canceled following its 13-episode first season. After premiering in October, the series moved from Wednesdays to a Saturday time slot in mid-January and wrapped Feb. 22.

Based on the Australian series Sisters, Almost Family also starred Brittany Snow as one the children of Hutton’s character who got to know some of her half-siblings, including ones played by Megalyn Echikunwoke and Emily Osment.

Almost Family was met with largely negative reviews, and poor ratings.  News of the cancellation comes on the heels of Hutton being accused of raping a 14-year-old girl in Vancouver, Canada, in 1983. Hutton has vehemently denied the allegations.
