Will Fringe viewers ever meet Dr. William Bell?
According to TV Guide, yes.
Senior Editor Mickey O'Connor spoke to John Noble, who had the following to say about the identity of Walter's former partner in the world of unusual science:
"I can't wait to see who it is, how it's revealed or what he represents or where he comes from."
Look for Bell to be introduced on the season finale of Fringe.
Walter Bishop won't be the only mad scientist on Fringe.
