Fringe returns to Fox on 28th September, and fans can now rejoice once more as a rather excellent Comic-Con trailer has been released online. Personally, I cannot wait for the return of Fringe, and I am absolutely stoked that a fifth and final season was agreed.
Fox President Kevin Reily said back in April the following on the deal for a fifth season:
“Fringe is a remarkably creative series that has set the bar as one of television’s most imaginative dramas. Bringing it back for a final 13 allows us to provide the climactic conclusion that its passionate and loyal fans deserve. The amazing work the producers, writers and the incredibly talented cast and crew have delivered the last four seasons has literally been out of this world. Although the end is bittersweet, it’s going to be a very exciting final chapter”
Not long to wait now Fringe fans, not long at all!
The show was created by JJ Abrams, Alex Krutzman and Roberto Orci and stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble and Lance Reddick.
A procedural thriller that follows the Fringe Team as they explore mysterious occurrences linked between parallel universes, doppelgängers and unimaginable threats.
(UPDATE: In a recent interview at Comic-Con, John Noble (who plays the terrific Walter Bishop) hinted at a possible Fringe movie in the future, he said “The film is very possible down the line,”. Joshua Jackson, who plays Walter’s son Peter stated “the show will live on in some form or another.” So there you have it, clear evidence that Fringe will not be going away after Season 5. Whether a film is in the pipeline is anybody’s guess, but it is good to hear that the fantastic show will continue…)
