FRINGE Renewed For Season 5
April 26, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
Good news FRINGE fans! While the ratings may have given some people (understandable) cause for alarm and panic, Fox has officially renewed the series for a 13-episode final season.
Given what the FRINGE stars have teased about a potential season 5, my brain hurts with the possibilities of where the show could go as it heads towards the end of its run.
[Updated: Fox's official press release included some comments from the people who helped make this season 5 possible --
“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,” said Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “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.”
FRINGE co-creator and executive producer J.J. Abrams added, “We are thrilled and beyond grateful that FOX – and our fans – have made the impossible possible: FRINGE will continue into a fifth season that will allow the series to conclude in a wild and thrilling way. All of us at Bad Robot are forever indebted to our viewers and the amazingly supportive FOX network for allowing the adventures of Fringe Division to not only continue, but to resolve in a way that perfectly fits the show.”
“This pickup means the world (both of them) to us, because we love sharing these stories with our enthusiastic fans,” added FRINGE showrunners and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman. “On behalf of the cast and crew, we applaud our fans and FOX for allowing us to imagine the impossibilities together for so long. Season Five is going to be a conclusive thrill ride for all of us.”]
