J.J. Abrams: Excited for New Fringe Writing Staff, Season

by at . Comments

While J.J. Abrams did not offer up any Fringe spoilers when asked about the upcoming second season, the show's co-creator did express his excitement over a new staff on the Fox drama.

Other than Jeff Pinkner, no writers are returning to the series, which is unusual for a successful show.

But Abrams told E! Online he's far from worried.

"There's been a massive influx of strange new faces with incredibly talented brains who are replacing many of the previous, equally talented brains in that room. There are some who are the same talented brains; there are some talented brains who have nothing to do with last year. Like any show, there's a rate of attrition that sort of just happens, but I have to say, the Fringe writing room [is] electric. On fire. Great ideas. Fun. So I was thrilled about last year, and I'm equally if not more excited about this year."
