Fans of Fox’s quirky Sci-Fi/paranormal series Fringe can relax. It seems the network is happy enough with the show’s performance and dedicated fanbase that it has decided to renew the series for fa fifth and final season.
That’s right, the show will live on at least one more year and debut with a final 13 episode season in the Fall, the last episode of which will mark the show’s 100th. Fox made the announcement today and of course, fans are not the only ones happy about this development.
“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,” series co-creator/executive producer J.J. Abrams said.
No word yet on the exact premiere date for the final season. However, don’t get too down about that because there’s already a promo for season 5. Check it out after the break. Fringe airs Friday nights at 9/8C on Fox.
