FRINGE Producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman Talk Balance in Season 3

August 11, 2010 by  

FRINGE ended their second season with a heartbreaking separation — but a whole lot of possibilities.

With our Olivia trapped in the alternate universe, season 3 will start off with screen time split between the two worlds.

And while some writers would be focusing their attention on exploring the second universe and the characters over there — it is new and exciting, after all — executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman say that what excites them the most is a chance to explore that arena thoroughly through the eyes of a character we already know and love.

“I think that for us, our hero characters are the first three we met — Peter, Olivia, Walter,” Pinkner shares in the video interview below. “And at the end of last season, we left Olivia in the other side. So we have a point of view character to explore the other side…Going over there is really telling the story that we’re compelled to tell. And Alt-Olivia, Alt-Broyles, Alt-Astrid, they’re really in relation to the characters that we love. So, we’re telling their story — and we intend to and we know their story and its a question of how fast we tell it — but for us, it’s only season 3. So to us, the mothership is still the shiny new toy.”


Still, had to ask, is there really only one alternate universe for their “shiny new toy” to compete with?

Pinkner and Wyman have an interesting take on that question. See for yourself…

    Love Fringe! I am ecstatic about the direction the show took at the end of last season. I cannot wait for the new season. Everything I have read/heard from the cast, crew, creators piques my interest. Brilliant development of the story thus far. One of the most promising avenues for any continuing series show from the 2009-10 season.
