Fox has set the fifth season premiere of Fringe for September 28 but those lucky enough to be travelling to San Diego for Comic-Con next week will be treated with a special sneak peek. For the first time, the science-fiction series booked the biggest room at the convention and to promote the event, as well as the fall premiere, the network just released this Observer-centric teaser poster. Take a look.
Fox has posted its Fall TV premiere schedule, which includes the addition of their new drama series The Mob Doctor and a couple of new comedy series to the line-up, not to mention the return of The X Factor for Season 2, and the standard Animation Domination Sunday night block.
Fringe may have evolved into some pretty hard science fiction but it's also more rewarding than most of the shows that simply sleep through their renewals. To borrow a phrase, the series boldly goes where none have gone before, only, it's also not interested in holding your hand. Well, except to make sure you know that it's coming back. Fox already released a Season 5 Announcement Promo when word of the renewal came but here's another reminder that Fringe returns Fridays this fall...
While there's no word (yet) on whether or not HBO or AMC will manage to get their huge series into Hall H at Comic Con this year, Warner Bros. TV released some information about their series, which includes The Big Bang Theory and Fringe. The CBS comedy and the Fox sci-fi drama will both be featuring panels at SDCC this summer, and fans will find them in Hall H, as opposed to the smaller Ballroom 20.
Now that they know which ending to move forward with, the season finale of Fringe is set in stone, and the second and final part of "Brave New World" is ready to air on Friday. That means that it's also time to promote it, and to offer the epic conclusion its proper due, Fox has released a full cinematic trailer for the final episode of the fourth season. "It is possible." Take a look.
It's still much too early to have any season-five footage to show off, so instead Fox decided to celebrate the show's history with a new promo for the final season. Over the course of 60 seconds, the promo traces the long, strange journey Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop, and the rest have been on over the past four seasons, from mad science to parallel realities.
Once again, the imaginative science-fiction series managed to stave off extinction and Fringe will be rewarded 13 more episodes to wrap up the series. That’s right, somehow a low-rated but critical and cult favourite series actually deserving of renewal was graced with good news and Fringe is allowed to continue to tell the boldest, sharpest and most satisfying sci-fi story in this or any parallel universe.
Fringe fans, you can stop holding your breath. The word has come down from on high (or as "on high" as it gets at Fox, anyway), and it is good: Fringe will indeed return for a fifth and final season, albeit for only 13 episodes.
Here at Cinema Blend, some of our writers consume quite a bit of TV every week. So, we asked them, if you could save one single program in danger of being cut, which one would it be? Not surprisingly, we received five very passionate and very different answers. This week, we’re going to allow each one to present his or her case to the network heads and to their fellow fans as to why it would be an absolute travesty if their choice was given its walking papers. Below, you’ll find a short preview of what to expect.
Hang in there Fringe fans – there’s still plenty of hope for the series that seems to be perpetually on the verge of cancellation. The good news is talks are continuing to bring the show back next season, and while you wait, check out the video compilation of “Walter-isms” just released during the cast’s WonderCon panel.
For many fans sad to see the end of Lost in 2010, Fringe has become the show that filled the island-shaped hole in their lives. Now Fringe is adding another Lost connection to its collection, with actor Henry Ian Cusick, who played Desmond on the mystical island drama, set to appear in an upcoming episode.
Fringe fans have been waiting for the axe to fall ever since the acknowledgement to TCA press that the show is losing money, and that the current season might well be the last. There are still no promises, but it looks like there is some hope for Fringe after all. Negotiations for season five are underway and there are a few reasons to feel good about the show’s future.
It's always a constant battle for Fringe. It is fast-paced, challenging and very demanding which is why, like so many similarly complex television series, it is all but certainly going to be cancelled after this season. Let's try to save it yeah? Or at least enjoy it while we have it. Here's a recap of the fourth season and a preview for this week's "Back to Where You've Never Been."
While Reilly didn't explicitly say that any would be cancelled, his refusal to discuss them wasn't a good sign-- and when it comes to Fringe, he didn't mince words about the reasons the network might want to cancel it. Here's what he said
As the year draws to a close, we’re rounding off the last of our “Best of 2011” lists. In looking over our list of the best female TV characters from this year, it’s evident that TV delivered some excellent women to the screen.
