Okay, well, after your awe that this is not a Doctor Who post, you can move on to the most exciting genre news released this week (IMO). Fox actually listened to their fans and RENEWED FRINGE FOR A FIFTH AND FINAL SEASON! The gasps and squeals of
delight shock from fans around the world were tangible when the news broke Thursday evening. We even got a trailer to boot! Check out the awesomeness below:
Granted, they only are giving us 13 episodes, I don’t care. I’ll take it. I will soak up every last minute of these episodes, absorbing every last ounce of Bishopness, Walternate and Fauxlivia I can get.
J.J. Abrams released this statement with the news:
“We are thrilled and beyond grateful that Fox – and our fans – have made the impossible possible: Fringe will continue into a fifth season that will allow the series to conclude in a wild and thrilling way. All of us at Bad Robot are forever indebted to our viewers and the amazingly supportive Fox network for allowing the adventures of Fringe Division to not only continue, but to resolve in a way that perfectly fits the show.”
The fans – US – need to be congratulated for this one. Believe me, I’d like to think I am part of many fandoms and I love them all, but the Fringe fandom is absolutely brilliant. I mean, have you seen the #WhereIsPeterBishop campaign?! It is an absolute testament to the creativity, loyalty and downright awesomeness of this group. This video literally gives me chills every time I watch it. (It could be my slight fangirl obsession with Joshua Jackson too… but I digress. ;P)
This is not without recognition from the show big wigs either,
“This pickup means the world (both of them) to us, because we love sharing these stories with our enthusiastic fans,” showrunners and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman said. “On behalf of the cast and crew, we applaud our fans and Fox for allowing us to imagine the impossibilities together for so long. Season Five is going to be a conclusive thrill ride for all of us.”
I cannot express my happiness, I want to scream so many ecstatic things right now, but in the words of one of my favorite on screen geeks, “I can’t express myself monosyllabically enough for you to understand ’em all!”
So I’ll just end with this… WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Fringe airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. Season 4 concludes on May 11.
