FRINGE: Co-Showrunner Jeff Pinkner Departs
June 19, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
A bit of sad news as FRINGE heads towards its final season — multiple sources confirm that co-showrunner Jeff Pinkner has left the series. TVGuide.com was first to report the news.
While Pinkner has been a part of the show since the first season (he cowrote the series’ second episode), the final 13 episodes will still be in good hands: J.H. Wyman — who has been with FRINGE since its first year and co-showrunning the Fox drama with Pinkner since season 2 — will continue on as the sole showrunner.
And if you’re curious to see what season 5 may bring, don’t forget that the cast and producers of FRINGE will be appearing at Comic-Con in just a few weeks. (That’s Sunday, July 15th in Hall H to be exact. And yes, I will be doing my best to get as many answers out of them as possible.)
Any thoughts on Pinkner’s departure?
