Fringe PSA: Heed. Obey. Serve.

The Observers are doing more than observing. Scary stuff, kiddies!

Fringe (Fox, Fridays, 9/8C) returns for its final season on September 28, 2012.

Fringe Takes #19 To Even Greater Extremes Of The Odd And Deeply Disturbing!

The year is 2036 and the Observers have taken over – but there is a resistance. That’s the basic setup for Fringe’s [Fox, Fridays, 10/9C] annual ‘out there’ episode [remember the previous animated, or musical 19th episodes], Letters of Transit [check out the cast teasing the episode above, and follow the jump to my review].

Fringe’s Jasika Nicole Talks Show’s First Astrid-centric Episode!

Astrids

Although it was cutting things pretty fine, Jaskia Nicole spoke with the press about her characters’ first feature episode of Fringe [Fox, 10/9C]. The ep was a special challenge because it not only features Astrid and Alt-Astrid from ‘Over There’, but they are onscreen together.

Nicole was excited to talk about the ep and the conference call was a very cheerful affair.

Fringe’s Executive Producers, Talk to Eclipse – Promise Adventurous Storytelling In Season Four

Pinkner & Wyman

Fans of Fringe [premiering on Fox tonight at 10/9C] are among the fiercest around, hence Fox giving the show a fourth season – even if it’s on Friday nights and faces stiff competition from The CW’s supernatural and NBC’s Grimm. It will take a lot of imagination and vision to face down those odds – especially since they disappeared the show’s male lead, Peter Bishop, in last season’s finale.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A with Fringe’s executive producers, Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman, who talked about the upcoming season. They sounded excited by the challenges they face this year, and promised more of the adventurous storytelling for which the show has become known.

TELEVISION: Rejoice Skiffy Fans! FRINGE Renewed For Third Season!

Fox TV has given TV’s second-best sci fi series [behind only Lost] the thumbs up for a third season, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Lynette Rice.

The series which averages under eight million viewers per week has still managed to give Fox a presence its new timeslot on Thursdays – and the network is showing its appreciation for both the high-quality series and its fervent fan base [kind of like they did with Dollhouse, only with a series that has better than three times as many viewers].

Maybe we’ve reached a tipping point where quality and economics and audience can co-exist – after all, NBC renewed Chuck, this season, which has a similarly-sized audience. Two shows might not seem like a trend, but with TV’s increasingly fragmented audience, they could be enough.
