Whew! Killer Reviews has been a fan of the FOX television show for four years and the idea that the series might be cancelled at the conclusion of the fourth season was as sad to us as it was unfathomable. So we are thankful beyond alternate universes to relay that FOX has picked up the show for a fifth and final season.
Season 5 will only carry 13 episodes, but will allow Watler, Peter and Olivia tie up what loose ends are necessary to make the series a must-buy box set when becoming available.
Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment for the Fox Broadcasting Company had this announcement:
"'Fringe' is a remarkably creative series that has set the bar as one of television's most imaginative dramas," Reilly stated. "Bringing it back for a final 13 allows us to provide the climactic conclusion that its passionate and loyal fans deserve. The amazing work the producers, writers and the incredibly talented cast and crew have delivered the last four seasons has literally been out of this world. Although the end is bittersweet, it's going to be a very exciting final chapter."
"Fringe" co-creator and executive producer J.J. Abrams added, "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. 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."
Frings stars John Noble and Joshua Jackson and appears on Fox Fridays at 8PM
