I love Fringe.  If you haven’t been watching, you’re missing out on a great sci-fi series that’s definitely worth your time.  And unlike The X-Files, which didn’t know how to end a storyline, every season of Fringe has focused on new ideas and mysteries.  It’s been a great ride that ends with a final 13-episode season this fall.

Shortly after winning Best Network Television Series at the Saturn Awards the other night, I landed an extended video interview with executive producer, writer, director and showrunner J.H. Wyman.  We talked about what fans can look forward to on the final season, where he is in the writing process, will the show answer all the mysteries, Comic-Con, and a lot more.  In addition, Wyman revealed that he’s writing and directing the last episode of the series and the last three episodes are all a continuation of each other, basically giving the series a three-hour finale.  Hit the jump to watch.
