FRINGE Scoop: Is Olivia Coming Home in November? Producers Spill

October 25, 2010 by  

Is Olivia returning home to “our” universe this November?

The promo that aired after the last new episode of FRINGE said that would be the case and I was shocked by the bombshell. After all, if it’s true, that’s a major spoiler to drop via “next time on FRINGE,” no?

So, when I stalked talked with show producers Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman and Akiva Goldsman at the Meltdown Comics event last night, naturally that was the first question I posed.

Is it true?

“No,” Wyman answered.

Rats! It seems we’ve been duped by the Fox promo department. So when might Olivia return to our side?

“[Olivia] will return eventually,” Pinkner said.

“Sometime between November and, oh, say, the end of time,” Goldsman joked.

“Fox was a little bit premature with that [promo],” Pinkner shared. “In fact, we said to them, ‘This is a little premature’ and they said, ‘But she will be returning’ and we can’t deny that.”

However, they’re mum on when that return will be. They are quite the cryptic crew.

Are you disappointed, FRINGE fans? Or are you cool with this storyline playing out a bit longer?

    I must say that as someone that thought Fringe was great when in its first two seasons, I am not enjoying it anymore. Fringe when it first aired was fresh, new and very creative and now it has morphed into a show about two worlds, or dimensions, at war with each other but only one really knowing it. The wonderful chemistry between all the main characters, the search for answers, the combination of investigation, science, and “fringe science”, to eccentricities of Walter, all fit together in a cohesive mix resulting in two great seasons. Now this season has absolutely none of that whatsoever.

    Please wrap up whatever storyline(s) you feel you must and return to the formula that made the first two seasons so fresh and new! If Fringe continues on its current path my wife and I will most definitely stop watching it. We don’t watch shows we don’t enjoy.

    I used to watch Fringe when it aired, Now I DVR the show so I can fast forward through the majority of it. I agree with previous posters, that this season is not as good. This whole storyline is slow. They have watered down Walter’s charater. Walter is not cut out for corporate hassle. He was happy at the college with his lab, Astrid & the cow. Really, why would Bell leave Walter controlling interest ? He knew what shape Walter is in. It would have made more since to be 50/50 with Nina. Also, the idea that Peter & the gang would not know this Olivia is a fake by now is ridiculous. Do the actors feel the same way? It’s like they just come in and read their lines then go on about their day. What happened to the chemistry?

    i like the story line , but i too can’t wait for Olivia to return, someone else mention that they would like bolivia to see that olivas’ world is not evil like walternet claims it to be i like that idea too. Just give the season a chance you might like where its going

    I hope that Bolivia gets killed soon, or will experience a lot of bad things, I hate this caracter, she is kind of a pure cliche, reflecting a very misogynist point of vue. You know weak, bitchy, faulse, no self respect, she is just a very dirty mean used by Walternate. Very reductive isn’t it ? The writers should have built a different but interesting dopplehanger, but what she has alreday done kills all interest in her. I wait for Olivia to come back, but if the storyline on our side was interesting I would have like her to stay longer over there, because the red episodes are really good, I like the idea of these two universes at war. Peter doesn’t know he is sleeping with the ennemy, otherwise he would ask himself where is Olivia, after all they were supposed to be in love. But Peter’s relationship with Bolivia kind of kills all interest on his caracter too, the con man has been conned, ah ah cliche again ! Dispite all this I hope I’m wrong, and that the writers have a good reason to make all this happen, and that against all odds, it brings a real good storyline for Olivia.

    this season is the first time I did not watch and was not looking forward to watching the episodes, TV or online. I seem to have lost all interest in the series due to the annoying storyline and well acted but annoying Bolivia. I think producers or did a major blow to the series and unfortunately this season may be the end of the series due to this stupid plot, just look at viewership numbers dwindling.

    Wyman and Goldsman, move back to Israel! (yeah, uncalled for).. “Goldsman Sucks!” LOL, you guys are totally ruining this show! Can’t you effin understand – you made the show BORING now!

    To Bob, you know what ? I am really happy you don’t like Fringe anymore, so we definitely have nothing in common.

    At first I was kinda ticked off about Olivia getting stuck in the alternate, especially because I really loved the fact that she and Peter finally decided to become an “item”. But I have to say, I’m loving the alternate storyline now. It’s fun to see the differences and similarities between the worlds/characters. Like a few of you had said, I don’t want Olivia’s return to be rushed, but what would be nice is Peter/Walter/Astrid finding out about Fauxlivia *before* Olivia returns.
    That being said, I think that the writers of Fringe really took a risk by separating the characters we know and love, and I think that’s what I love about this show. It’s not the kind of show that you play it safe, it’s a show where anything can happen, as made apparent by the first two seasons. Olivia getting stuck was completely a surprise for me, and although I didn’t like it at first, I admire the writers for taking that risk and making me see that it was a good idea in the long run.
    One more thing to add: Please please please let this show be renewed for a few more seasons. 🙂 It’s just that good.

    I don’t really like CSI type shows, but I do like Fringe’s first two seasons, which are both pretty much collections of stand-alone episodes like CSI and other shows. That said, I prefer heavy, mythology-based shows like Lost, in which the viewer has to journey with the charactes of a connected series of episodes with one main plot. This season, I’ve heard the term myth-alone episodes, which combines individual mysteries with more serialized aspects of the show. I love that! It’s such a unique and innovative approach. I also really like Fauxlivia. She’s funny! And she’s not mean or a b*tch. She’s tough, yeah, but so is Ourlivia. I think people are just reacting to the fact that Fauxlivia is working against our world. But I think that we have to understand that it’s perfectly reasonable for her have that attitude, given that she’s from a different world that Walter really messed up. Realistically, their side is more victimized then ours. And you can tell that she’s very human and has reservations about what she’s doing. Fauxlivia has morals and reservations and a sense of duty. I love that neither side is good or bad. And I think this season is the most exciting yet!

    Nous n’en somme en france qu’a la fin de la saison 2, on a bien compris que notre olivia est coinçée dans l’univers parallèle. En regardant la suite sur le net j’ai été trés déçu de voir q’elle reste là-bas encore pour un trop long moment !!!!! l’histoire à bien moins d’intéret sans le trio Walter/Peter/et la vrai olivia !!!!!!!!!!! Ceci dit chapeau pour l’actrice : je déteste l’olivia de l’autre monde !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I missed the first season and got addicted in season 2, but now I love the show, and I have to say that I love the plot of this season, with a few exceptions. I agree with what others have been saying; that is, that seeing Olivia’s character in the alternate universe is fascinating, but I am not all that thrilled about “our” universe’s episodes. Mostly, what I have the biggest problem with is that Peter doesn’t realize that Fauxlivia is not his real Olivia. I mean, come on! I like where the show is going, as long as they realize soon that Fauxlivia is the wrong Olivia, because I think that there comes a certain point where you can’t go back, and Fauxlivia and Peter’s relationship is going to go too far for him and real Olivia to ever be together.

    Has anyone else gotten the feeling after watching the last episode, that Alternate Olivia is beginning to realize that OUR world is kinder, gentler and more appealing as Peter revealed that he intends to find a way to safeguard both worlds??? My theory is that she will abort her mission.

  13. Laura on November 15th, 2010 4:59 pm

    I loved this show up until this season, I’m sorry I want to continue to like it but I don’t! I think its boring as hell. I watched to see the different cases they solve this is the same old thing over and over. Peter is a smart guy and Walter is suppose to be one of the brightest minds of his time and they can’t tell this is not really Olivia pleassssssssse! And last season Olivia had her neice and sister living with her now all of a sudden they are not living with her?? Sorry to all you people who are still loving the show I think it sucks and have stopped watching.

    I think the show is perfect just the way it is!! I want Olivia to come home when the writers are good and ready for her to. Hope it doesn’t get cancelled cause usually every show I ever like usually does. But this seasons storyline is far superior to the past seasons!!! Perfect!!!

  15. Fabsie on November 17th, 2010 1:15 pm

    I think, this year, Fringe writers chose kind of a porn movie storyline with threesome stuff it’s what they call endless possibilites ? personally I’m not very happy about that, it lowers the interest, and seriously damages the caracters. hope they can make a miracle, like wiping all the memories that Peter has of Altivia. Despite that, I still watch every episode, it was my favorite show I’m looking forward of seeing all this little family reunited again.

  16. Rachel on May 20th, 2011 3:37 am

    I just don’t like Olivia’s character anymore. Wish they’d kill her off. She’s annoying.
