The End of William Bell on Fringe?

at . Comments

Just a couple weeks after his latest appearance as William Bell on Fringe, Leonard Nimoy has bad news for fans:

He might never return to the show.

"I've done three appearances for them. I don't know if I will do a fourth," the actor told The Los Angeles Times this week.

Nimoy's Bell most recently appeared in "Momentum Deferred" an episode that revolved around Olivia's return to her alternative reality.

"They've asked me to do more, but we have to talk about where the character is going," Nimoy said. "So far my character and my appearances have been used to lay in information about this alternate universe and the experience of being in this other world. And that's OK, but I don't know yet what plans they have for really developing a dramatic story for the character. I'm waiting for a conversation about that."

Whether or not he appears on screen again, the star has nothing but praise for the show.

"They do a great production job. They have great story hooks, terrific production values and very interesting performances."

Fringe Quotes

Nature doesn't recognize good and evil Philip. Nature only recognizes balance and imbalance. I intend to restore balance to our world. Whatever it takes.


Elizabeth: Sometimes what we have is not the world we want, but we have our hearts and our imaginations to make the best of it. I will promise you this: I will be the best mother I possibly can be to you. I'll take care of you, I will protect you and I will never let anyone take you away from me. No one. Not ever.
Peter: But you're not her, are you? You're not my real mother.
Elizabeth: You were sick. You were very sick for a long, long time and I think it confused you. Yes, I am your mother, of course I am.
