Friday, April 27 2012 - News - by: daveomac
Fringe has been renewed for a fifth and final season of 13 episodes. Fox made the decision yesterday and seems to be treating this final season as a reward to Fringe's loyal fans.
"Fringe is a remarkably creative series that has set the bar as one of television's most imaginative dramas. 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." said FOX president Kevin Reilly.
One can only thank Chuck who paved the way for network shows to produce one final short season to help wrap up fan favorite shows.
Fringe co-creator J.J. Abrams was ecstatic about the news, "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."
"This pickup means the world (both of them) to us, because we love sharing these stories with our enthusiastic fans," added Fringe showrunners and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman. "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."
I for won am sad to see my favorite show leave the air but I'm perfectly happy to see that it'll have a satisfying ending.
