FRINGE Renewed for Fifth and Final Season

     April 26, 2012

Much to the relief of plenty of fans, Fox has renewed Fringe for a fifth and final season.  It’s no secret that the show isn’t exactly a ratings smash, but the series has picked up considerable critical acclaim throughout its four-season run thus far.  Per TV Line, Fringe will return next season for a final run of 13 episodes, allowing it to reach the magic 100-episode number that makes it eligible for the lucrative business of syndication.  Fox president Kevin Reilly had this to say about the order:

“Bringing it back for a final 13 allows us to provide the climactic conclusion that its passionate and loyal fans deserve.”

Since the show was on the brink of cancellation, they show two endings to the current fourth season—one season finale, and one series finale.  Sadly, I stopped watching the show after only a couple of episodes so I can’t join in on the excitement that’s sure to come with this news, but I plan on catching up with the show sooner rather than later (thank you, Netflix).
