Rejoice, FRINGE fans! FOX has officially renewed the J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi show for a fifth and final season, which will consist of 13 episodes. Plenty of time for the producers and writers to wrap up the show in a satisfactory manner, and for the show to reach the magical 100 episodes for syndication.
In a press release, co-creator J.J. Abrams said, “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.”
He continued, “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.”
Showrunners/executive producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner added, “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 5 is going to be a conclusive thrill ride for all of us.”
The two-part Season 4 finale begins May 4th and continues May 11th.
