“Let’s get started, we don’t have much time,” says Joshua Jackson’s Peter Bishop in the promo, and we imagine he’s probably right – there’s going to be a whole lot of action, excitement and revelations to get through in the space of 13 short episodes. “They are coming” is the tagline that adorns the poster, and is the first line spoken in the promo, and if you’ve never seen the show before then you might be tempted to assume that "they" are The Adjustment Bureau given that they’re all sporting fetching hats. "They" are actually The Observers, and seeing as they’re now on their way it doesn’t look like they’ll be sticking to observing from here on in.
The first episode of the new season will be titled “Transilence Thought Unifier Model-11” and will be set in the dystopian Observer-run future of 2036. This will all probably mean a lot more to fans of the show, but speaking as someone who’s not kept up with “Fringe” over the last 5 years, it all looks exciting enough to make this writer want to catch up before the premiere. Let’s hope this final season leaves the majority of the show’s dedicated fans satisfied (because, hey, you can never please everyone) in a way that other notable sci-fi shows in recent years failed to achieve.
