If you caught and loved the first episode of Sleepy Hollow this week or if you were a fan of Fringe when it aired, there is good news on the horizon. John Noble, who formerly starred in Fringe, has now signed a deal to appear in the first season of Sleepy Hollow. We’re talking a major storyline and a recurring role.
When I first read Fringe: The Complete Fifth and Final Season was already in the works over at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I was simultaneously a little shocked and impressed. The series only finished its run a few days ago, and usually it takes months and months for companies to put together sufficient Blu-ray and DVD sets. As it turns out, Fringe: The Complete Fifth and Final Season won’t hit homes until May 7, but Warner Bros. has been quick to put together the details of the release.
As you may have noticed, Netflix has been adding some shows to its library a bit sooner than usual following the series' original airdate. For example, FX's American Horror Story's first season went up last fall, about a year after it aired, and Scandal's first season was made available streaming on Netflix just months from its original airing on ABC. From Netflix's recent announcement about the deal they've signed with Warner Bros. Television Group, it looks like we'll be seeing some other great, currently-airing TV shows on Netflix in the future.
ABC is moving into The X-Files territory with a paranormal investigation series coming this summer. The network has ordered Weird Desk straight to series to join the new drama Mistresses on the summer of 2013 schedule.
Fringe fans, it’s time to get comfy on that couch and line up the snacks. Science Channel is giving you something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week. They’re airing a Fringe marathon that includes the complete first season, as well as a new series examining some real-life fringe science.
All good things must come to an end, and Fringe fans would probably categorize the sci-fi-drama among "good things." Fox has set the finale date for Fringe for January 2013. What's more, the series will close out its fifth and final season with two back-to-back episodes.
It's Friday! And for some, that means the end of the work-week and weekend plans. For others, it's the day of Friday-night TV shows, including the return of Fringe and Grimm's move back to its regular time-slot. Some say Friday night is a bad night for TV, and granted, there's probably far less competition on the last night of the work-week than there is on any other weeknight. But that doesn't mean there's nothing to watch on Fridays.
Always teetering on the edge of cancellation, despite the impeccable quality of the on-air product, Fringe is one of numerous programs that has already announced that the upcoming year would be the series' last. It's a trend these days to 'grant' acclaimed and beloved but not necessarily widely watched shows an often truncated final season.
They are coming! Dystopias are such a bummer. Heed, obey, serve? That's about as uninspiring a motto as you could possibly imagine but the Observers care little about what Natives would find inspiring (well, perhaps to quash it), they only care that they do as required. And in order to create a populace who will blindly follow the rules, you have to ensure that they know what the rules are first. So, pay attention!
Fringe may be wrapping up this season, but it looks like executive producers J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman are still looking to work with one another. The duo have teamed up for a new sci-fi project that has received a pilot production commitment from Fox. This marks the second recently announced robot-themed TV project in development for network TV.
The single most exciting return to television this fall is Fringe. After the usual tooth and nail fight to even be granted another, the science-fiction series on Fox is gearing up for their fifth and final season of 13 episodes. With the lean order, there will be absolutely no room for filler in the upcoming installments as the team, on-screen and off, work to resolve the complex yet emotionally satisfying storyline. And the new tease reinforces a consistent theme in all the Observer related marketing so far, namely, that "they are coming..."
Welcome back to FlixWorthy, your guide to Netflix streaming...and more. To help you navigate the new and notable streaming releases, each new installment of FlixWorthy will highlight new and/or notable releases on Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime. This week we took a look at AMC's Hell on Wheels, Fox's Fringe, and Morgan Spurlock's "A Day In The Life."
The final season of Fringe. which just started production, has had to come to a halt. Only four days into filming, the show has shut down for two weeks so that one of the stars can seek medical treatment. It doesn’t sound like anything life-threatening; John Noble will be treated for a sleep disorder and plans to be back on the set soon enough.
Fringe was moved to Hall H for its final Comic-Con visit and apparently it was an emotional affair. On Sunday morning, a giant line of fans filed in to witness the science-fiction's series farewell panel which not only discussed the fifth season but shared some exciting footage. Here's the three and a half minute teaser trailer shown at SDCC.
Part of the Comic Con experience is enduring the long but usually (relatively) quickly-moving line to pick up your badge and other materials each attendee receives. Among which is a big bag, which can be used to carry all sorts of loot acquired on the floor. Warner Bros. Entertainment and Comic Con have teamed up once again on the oversized 24”x29” bags, which feature a variety of TV shows, as well as a couple of anticipated feature films. Check them out ahead!
