Why Was It Cancelled? Despite strong name recognition from the movie this show was spin off from, it debuted to poor ratings in Fall 2015 and slipped to historically low numbers for a Big Four broadcast network show amidst grumblings from fans that it was just another cop show with a twist. Its episode order was cut from thirteen to ten which acted as a de facto cancellation and official word finally came at the end of the season.

    well this sucks!! show the episodes out of order, and then cancel it!! First Almost Human, which again was shown out if order, then cancelled, now Minority report. Fox if you’re not serious about giving us a sci fi show please stop buying them!! let another network. This sucks I know with Fringe, we had to beg and plead for Fox to keep one of the best sci fi shows around.. just really bummed, and since they cut down fomr 13-10 i can assume they wont even wrap it up for us.. you suck fox..

    Setter off just not watching any new shows. So tired of getting involved then having the show cancelled that I record everything and if they cancel I jettison the show. These networks all suck fully 20 minutes of all of these one hour shows are ads and then you waste weeks learning the show and then it’s gone. Just BS

    they refuse to announce that this is cancelled. I would rather they just announce a show is gone. Right after they finish airing it. than force us to wonder about it. scy fy did this with Olympus. it’s in limbo? just let us know!. I love sci fi. so this sucks for me. with the recent slaughter of sci fi shows on tv it’s just sad. ‘under the dome, extant, dominion, defiance, the whispers, wiped out, and that’s just lately. the list goes back for decades of sci fi shows that get pulled.

      Most of the networks have developed a phobia of announcing cancellations of late (though not CBS with Angel from Hell) because I guess they want to keep all their options open as long as possible. Minority Report seems all but cancelled, though, and I expect FOX to make it official around May as the upfronts approach when the networks present their schedules for the 2016-17 season.
