Poster & Trailer For Fifth & Final Season Of 'Fringe'

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist July 3, 2012 at 11:16AM

“Fringe” was one of those shows that seemed under threat of cancellation at the end of its fourth season, but it was also one of those shows that had a passionate and vocal fan base who were able to convince Fox to bring it back for a fifth and final season. That final run of 13 episodes will kick off on September 28th and will pick up after the events of the season 4 finale which (SPOILER ALERT) saw the return of Leonard Nimoy’s William Bell, as well as the death and subsequent resurrection of Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham (SPOILER END). That episode was apparently written as a possible series finale in the event that the show wouldn’t be picked up for a fifth season, but thankfully that wasn’t be the case. We’ve now got a new poster and promo for the final season, which will culminate with the show’s 100th episode.

Fringe” was one of those shows that seemed under threat of cancellation at the end of its fourth season, but it was also one of those shows that had a passionate and vocal fan base who were able to convince Fox to bring it back for a fifth and final season. That final run of 13 episodes will kick off on September 28th and will pick up after the events of the season 4 finale which (SPOILER ALERT) saw the return of Leonard Nimoy’s William Bell, as well as the death and subsequent resurrection of Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham (SPOILER END). That episode was apparently written as a possible series finale in the event that the show wouldn’t be picked up for a fifth season, but thankfully that wasn’t be the case. We’ve now got a new poster and promo for the final season, which will culminate with the show’s 100th episode.

“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.
