Though a fifth and final season of Fox's Fringe was an unknown at the time, the producers decided to take the risk and introduce us to a wild, weird future ruled by the Observers late in season four. With a fifth year now a certainty, producer J.H. Wyman wants you to know: We will definitely be revisiting the bizzaro future of 2036 we glimpsed in "Letters of Transit."
Fringe's fall return will be bittersweet in more ways than one. Not only is it the drama's last season, but the show's losing a castmember. Shortly after becoming a series regular, Seth Gabel has been put out to pasture.
We see a lot of death on our favorite genre TV shows. Villains go down, henchmen meet gruesome ends, monsters fall, heroes make brave sacrifices. Blood is spilled, bodies pile up, and we keep watching. But which of those shows is actually the deadliest? The rankings may prove surprising.
It's finale time, and it's also time for us to say goodbye to a few shows that didn't get renewed. This week, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, Once Upon a Time and The Vampire Diaries ended their seasons with the knowledge that they'll be coming back, while The Secret Circle signed off for the last time.
Fox announced its fall schedule this morning and not one new sci-fi or fantasy show made the cut. In returning show news, both Touch and Fringe will be back, as previously announced, and have both been scheduled for Fridays, with Touch airing at 8 p.m. and Fringe's final season keeping its timeslot at 9 p.m.
Fringe finished its fourth season with an explosive freaky finale that could have been a somewhat satisfying series finale even if Fox hadn't renewed the show. And reviews for "Brave New World, Part 2" online seem to vary from glowing to "bitterly disappointed."
If you watched Fringe on Fox last week, you saw one doozy of a twist, although one that had been teased a couple episodes earlier. And it was a shocker!
The season finale of Fringe airs tonight on Fox, and judging by this new preview clip, the action picks up right where it left off last week—essentially with all hell about to break loose.
We're just days away from the first wave of season finales, and some shows are having better luck than others holding things together. The Big Bang Theory and Person of Interest both continued to dominate, while The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle struggled to get back their early season health.
It's finale time as several of the fall shows end their seasons going to war, including the dark magic sisters battling the Witch Hunters on the season one finale of The Secret Circle, the Fringe team trying to save the world against a newly discovered villain, and Once Upon a Time's epic conflict of good vs. evil.
