Good news “Fringe” fans, Deadline is reporting that Fox has picked up the ratings challenged series for a fifth and final season. The renewal comes after months of negotiations between Fox, Warner Brs TV, and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot. The final season will consist of 13 episodes and will give fans the proper send off that they have long been hoping for.
Co-creator/executive producer JJ Abrams had this to say regarding the renewal, “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.”
Here’s a teaser trailer Fox has released for season five. While it may not be “six seasons and a movie,” I’m glad to see “Fringe” is ending on it’s own terms rather than cancellation.
