FRINGE: Is Seth Gabel Returning As a Regular in Season 5? Plus, Gabel Talks About Where He Thinks Lincoln Was in the Finale and More
May 22, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
A little over a year ago, FRINGE fans were delighted when it was confirmed that long-time guest star Seth Gabel (Lincoln/alt-Lincoln) had been bumped up to a full-time position on the series following Peter’s season-ending erasure from existence.
But will given Lincoln’s decision to go Over There — and with the bridge being closed to prevent the collapse of both universes — will Gabel be a series regular for the show’s fifth season?
Unfortunately, this time the news isn’t as good.
Sources confirm that Gabel will not be an official series regular for the show’s final season. However — and this is important to note before you completely freak out — that does not mean Lincoln can’t pop up at some time during season 5. (After all, he was a guest star all the way up to last season.)
So, with that bad news out of the way, I talked with Gabel on the FRINGE set of the season finale. Obviously, he wasn’t in the finale, but I picked his brain on what he thought Lincoln might be up to and the differences for him being a series regular versus a guest star. Take a look!
You OK with this news, FRINGE fans?
