Comic-Con 2011: Fringe Coverage and Panel
The fate of the world will be determined in the fourth season of Fox's awesome midbender of an acid trip Fringe. What secrets will we learn at the San Diego Comic-Con 2011 panel? Check back often for all our Fringe Comic-Con coverage.

When Fox renewed Fringe for a fourth season, we all breathed a collective sigh of relief...but that sense of security was all but obliterated after we watched the season three finale "The Day We Died." WTF are Walter and Olivia going to do save the world and rescue Peter...again?
But what does John Noble himself have to say to UGO on the presence of Joshua Jackson's Peter Bishop at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 or the series' fourth season? Check it out!
"John Noble: I wish I knew the answer, because I contacted—Josh is my mate—and I said “what’s going on mate? Tell me what’s happening here.” I haven’t heard back from him yet. I saw it in the press release, which came out in the Hollywood Reporter [Joshua Jackson not being listed at Comic-Con] and I thought “everyone’s here but Josh.” And I can’t get an answer, so whether someone’s playing tricks or...what I heard last for sure is Josh obviously is contracted to come back; he’s the lead actor in the show. I don’t know what’s going on, and no one will tell me!
I’ve been trying to pin down the show-running staff, I saw them the other night and I said “I’ve gotta talk to you”; I ran into them Wednesday and I said “I’ve got to talk to you,” and they said “yeah...”; yesterday they stood me up twice, and they’re not talking to me! Then I saw them again last night, and my wife said to them, “you’re upsetting John, he wants to talk to you.” And they laughed. Today apparently they’re going to talk to me. Bad Robot loves to play all of this sort of viral stuff that goes on, which they do so brilliantly. And they know that we’re blabbermouths, so they don’t tell us too much."
Hopefully we'll get some answers at the Fringe panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year. But who's going to be there to give them, when the panel teleports into Ballroom 20 on Saturday, July 23rd at 4:15 - 5:00pm? See for yourself!

What?! No Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop)? Is Joshua off filming The Mighty Ducks reboot, or are Fringe fans in for one hell of a special reappearance given what happened to Peter at the end of "The Day We Died?!" Check back often for updates on Fringe at Comic-Con 2011!
