All I can gather from these new teaser trailers is that the Fringe finale is going to be very exciting, and very dramatic. It looks like we see glimpses of a happy future, but The Observers suddenly appear, and things look to get very bad from this point on. Seeing poor old Walter Bishop beaten up and bloody is not exactly fun to watch, but it does prove the show is going to go out on a high.
Fringe returns to Fox on 28th September after being granted a final season by Fox earlier this year. 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”
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.
