Fringe season 5 set for 3-part finale
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.
