Confident Fringe producers casting new character for season 4

Fringe fans may be holding their breath right now waiting to see whether the series has a future, but it seems there may be a chance we'll see a season four after all—despite Fox moving the series to the Friday night death slot a few months back against The CW's Supernatural.

It turns out the producers are so confident the struggling show will survive that they're already making plans to introduce a new character meant to recur NEXT year. So start crossing those fingers!

According to E Online's Watch with Kristin, Fringe is planning to introduce a female character—a brand-new, green, FBI agent.

Season four—and gods willing, there will be a season four—might bring us a new lady castmember. Producers are casting for a green FBI agent named Emily to come aboard for the finale and possibly recur next year. Let's see, Rachel Nichols is already locked up by Criminal Minds, and Emily Rose is on Haven, so ... paging Maggie Grace!

While we're not so sure about Maggie Grace (Lost), at least it's a sign that the producers are really hopeful for a renewal.

Still, we're sure Joshua Jackson, who plays Peter Bishop on the show, will still want everyone to keep on campaigning for the series until it's a done deal.

What do you think? Do you believe Fringe will make it for a fourth season? Do you like the idea of introducing a new FBI agent to the mix?
