Fringe season 5 set for 3-part finale

News 11 Sep 2012 - 08:01

The Fringe showrunner, J.H Wyman, has revealed some details about the show’s grand finale…

Friday September the 28th is the date that marks the beginning of the end for US Fringe fans. The show’s 13-episode final season kicks off on Fox on the 28th with the intriguingly titled Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11, before continuing with In Absentia, and The Recordist.

Ten further episodes will follow, disrupted by “two little breaks” according to Wyman. So it looks as though we’ll have a run of four episodes, a break, then two more, a break, and then an uninterrupted run of the final seven instalments, bringing the season finale to somewhere around mid-January.

Speaking to TV Line, showrunner J.H Wyman described Fringe’s final season as a “13-hour feature film type of thing, like a saga, because I feel that’s the best way to tell the end”. Though he denied rumours that the show will culminate in a two-hour TV movie, Wyman described the final three one-hour episodes as “a three parter” series finale.

Whatever happens, like many, we’re just happy Fringe was given a chance to tie up its loose ends and provide Walt, Olivia, Peter and co. with a proper send-off.

I'm so looking forward to this. In a way it's a shame that it's the end as the last season created a promising story arc that not only could potentially run for a good while, but would have spun the show off on a different direction. Ah well! Perhaps it's better that they quit while they're ahead.

Yeah. It has become a show without a formula if it can be said as such as it reinvents itself each season. However it would be satisifying to see a resolution to the fate of the two universes as well as the characters we've come to love rather than drag it out X-files style.

Perhaps it's unpredictability worked against it in the long run?

I'm surprised no-one's tried to create a show in the vein of Doctor Who that allows the main character to be played by different people and the premise is flexible enough to sustain it indefinitely and adapt to tastes as the years roll on. I guess it does show off the uniqueness of DW, though.

Super pumped for season 5, fringe took over my life when i began watching it early last year, shame it had to end but im sure it WILL BE EPIC
