‘Fringe’ Sets Series Finale Date

“FRINGE has truly imagined the impossibilities over its five seasons and will go down in the books as one of FOX’s most riveting and creatively brilliant series,” — Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

January 18th, 2013 will be the 100th episode of FOX’s cult science fiction drama Fringe. It will also be the final episode of the series. We knew this was coming people, but it saddens me even more now that the date is officially set. We still have quite a journey to go before we approach the series finale, so strap in and get ready for an emotional and riveting conclusion.

Series Co-Creator and Executive Producer J.J. Abrams had this to say about the shows run: “It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of Fringe.” He went on to add: “I am grateful to our blessed fans, and to Kevin Reilly and Peter Rice and everyone at the glorious FOX network for allowing Fringe to reach its bittersweet conclusion.”

Executive producer and showrunner J. H. Wyman said, “Above all else, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to personally thank everyone involved with Fringe.” He added: “It simply cannot be overstated how grateful I am for the ongoing and unconditional support we have received over the past five seasons. It has been both mind-blowing and humbling.”

Both Abrams and Wyman seem very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Fringe and for the show to reach a conclusion after five seasons on the air. This show has a passionate fan base, which has been instrumental in the shows five-season run.

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m excited for what’s to come and what will happen to Olivia, Peter, Walter and Astrid. Can’t wait!

In the aftermath of the devastating loss of Peter and Olivia’s daughter, Etta (guest star Georgina Haig), the intensity escalates as the combat continues and Peter makes a pivotal and game-changing move in the all-new “An Origin Story” episode airing tonight (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
