‘Fringe’ Season 5 Details Revealed
May 15, 2012 by Anthony Ocasio


The battle will soon be upon us in Fringe season 5. As the Observers make their way into our world, will the Fringe team be able to prevent the events depicted in 2036 from occurring?

Speaking with TV Guide and TV Line, Fringe executive producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner reveal what’s in store for season 5, how the impending battle will seamlessly fit into the series’ overall storyline, the huge payoff that’s waiting for fans at the end of the series, and much more.

While there’s no talk about the potential return of William Bell in season 5, one should never discount Fringe‘s ability to surprise its audience. Things are dependent on Leonard Nimoy’s decision to return, and it is not currently known whether or not he will reprise his character once again. Though, after his tremendous performance in the Fringe season 4 finale, hopes are high that he will.

Heading in to its final season, the focus is now on the Observers and what eventually occurs in 2036. Despite the season 4 finale having some fans worrying that the impending Observer battle will set aside many the series’ original storylines, the producers promise that Fringe’s fifth and final season will be a “huge payoff” for its loyal fans:

Wyman: Well, let’s say that basically 2036 is extremely important to Season 5. It’s crucial, but having said that, everything that you have seen in Fringe from Season 1 all the way to 4 is really, really, really, really important to what’s going on in Season 5, and 2036 is part of that.

Season 5 is designed to be very important, a huge payoff for loyal fans. They will feel like, “Because I invested in every single episode, and I have so many questions, I want these questions answered. And I want everything to be made sense of, but taken on a journey that just can’t be stopped. I want it to end in a place where I feel like everybody kind of belongs where they are and got what they’ve earned.” There will be a sense of satisfaction for those long-term viewers that go, “Wow, I really feel good. I feel OK about what has transpired, what I have watched. But I also can imagine life after that for our main characters.”

Given the limited amount of episodes, fans shouldn’t worry about unnecessary episodic stories. Fringe has an end date, and it’s now a direct line to the finish:

It’s a 13-episode sprint; there’s no filler episodes. It answers some very bold questions. It culminates with a very satisfying type of crescendo that really is so important for the fans, that’s the biggest thing. That’s the only thing that’s really important is to make sure that they feel absolutely satiated.

Why does this blog have a "WARNING - Season 4 Spoilers" the story is all about season 5 spoilers. duh

This article is very encouraging. I hope that it is true that we will be satisfied at the end. Believe me I know due to my line of work you cannot please all of the people all of the time, but I feel good about this write up and that most of us will be happy about how things play out. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

I can’t wait to see Season 5, what a labor of love this whole journey has been for the cast, the writers, and everyone involved in every large, to miniscule aspect of this show. This is one of those shows that is going to be an everlasting classic. Thanks to everyone for four and soon five seasons of awesomeness.

I fully believe and trust in the showrruners, J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner, said. No doubt we'll have a fifth season, to the height of everything that has already been told on Fringe. But for me, Fringe ends not "fully" in this next season as it has a very, very rich storyline. I think Fringe will end on 5S, but leaving a strong possibility of continued later. This is for me the volume 1 of the Fringe.

Matthew M said...

I'm your opposite number. I think he promises too much and I'm afraid it won't deliver in just 13 episodes. I do hope I am wrong.

SissySiri said...

Matthew M – you could be right. In many of their previous interviews nothing they said matched what happened in the episode and/or future. In particular the one where they said they were going to put up a sign in front of Leonard Nimoy’s house imploring him to return to Fringe. All the while knowing the episodes with him had already been filmed. Now a person may say, well they did not want to give away the surprise. And I would retort, then don’t so far in the cover up by making an outrageous statement about putting up a sign! So annoying, IMO.

ok I dont know about anyone else, but this made me cry because it is now officially proven that fringe is almost over with! :( what am I going to do!? I am glad it will go out with a bang though most likely :)

So encouraged by this post. A big thank you to everyone who keeps us up to date on this awesome site. I really don't know why some folks are so pessimistic. Even if it isn't every single thing we want, it will be so much more than we would have gotten if the series was cancelled with Season 4. I have no reason not to trust this most excellent show and its writers/creators. I know it's going to be the best Fringe ride ever.

SissySiri said...

IMO I think it is simply that most people do not like change, it’s not necessarily pessimism. We have grown to love the characters in Fringe and true fans who have watched every single episode since the pilot, like I have, feel a sense of loss knowing it is coming to an end. I think it is as simple as that.

Reading for quite some time and then contributing to blogs has been a lot of fun. I am very grateful for this short 5th season; however my own personal concern is how this unique show is going to end. Why wouldn’t I be when I have been so disappointed in the past by other favorite show endings?

LittleWing said...

@ SissySiri, I consider myself a "true fan" too :-). (I own and have watched every Fringe episode more times than I can say.) I guess I'm just too caught in the gratitude for season 5 to worry.
