Friday night death slot? Hah! Fringe is renewed for a 4th season!

Proving itself to be the show that refuses to die, the Anna Torv-Joshua Jackson-John Noble para-science-fiction series was just granted a fourth year by Fox. Hooray for more pan-dimensional escapades!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fringe didn't just get picked up for a fourth season, it got picked up for 22 episodes' worth of a fourth season, a terrific show of faith from Fox, a company that has been known to, from time to time, mercilessly cancel low-rated genre programming.

But if you hear Fox's entertainment chief Kevin Reilly tell it, as he did earlier this year, he's a big cheerleader for the J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman-created show:

"It's a fantastic show ... and honestly I'd be heartbroken if it went away."

So would we, Kev. So would we.
