Fox Officially Sets FRINGE’s Series Finale Date

November 2, 2012 by  

Leave it to FRINGE to zig when you expect it to zag, even when it comes to its own series finale date.

Originally, Fox Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly told reporters at summer Television Critics Association that the series finale for FRINGE would air in January of 2013. A little over a month later, FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman tweeted that the show’s final hour would actually air on February 1, 2013. But now, things have changed.

Fox has announced that FRINGE’s series finale will air Friday, January 18th in a two-episode two-hour block starting at 8 PM.

“It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of FRINGE,” J.J. Abrams said in a statement. “I will always owe the cast and crew for pouring their hearts and souls into every dimension of this series. Creating the show with Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman was a joy, but watching it evolve over the years into such an imaginative, insane and heartbreaking ride is nothing less than a thrill. I am grateful to our blessed fans, and to Kevin Reilly and Peter Rice and everyone at the glorious Fox network for allowing FRINGE to reach its bittersweet conclusion.”

“Above all else, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to personally thank everyone involved with FRINGE,” showrunner J.H. Wyman said. “From the most amazing fans, to our incredible cast, writers and crew, and our wonderful partners at FOX and Warner Bros. – we would not be here without you. It simply cannot be overstated how grateful I am for the ongoing and unconditional support we have received over the past five seasons. It has been both mind-blowing and humbling. I’ve always been a fan of science fiction, and to be able to tell this story about a family – a family that, through everything, fought together for survival – has been a highlight of my career. As we approach the final chapter, I can hardly believe it, and I’m just truly thankful for this unparalleled experience.”

“FRINGE has truly imagined the impossibilities over its five seasons and will go down in the books as one of FOX’s most riveting and creatively brilliant series,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It has been a blast to work with J.J., Joel and their masterful creative teams, as well as with Anna, Josh and John and the rest of the most talented cast and crew in the business.”

FRINGE airs Fridays at 9 PM on Fox.
