Fringe Season Two Finale to Top Last Year, J.J. Abrams Says

at . Comments

Producer J.J. Abrams says he doesn't know if Fringe will be renewed for a third season.

But he does know this: the second season finale of this Fox drama will somehow top the incredible episode that concluded its first season (in which we learned of an alternate reality in which the Twin Towers still exist).

"I think the whole alternate-universe idea is at the core of what's going to be happening," Abrams said earlier this week. "Without giving anything away, I think that the ending of this second season is richer and better and deeper than what we did last year."

While Fringe is off the air until April 1, it will return on that date and air seven consecutive episodes. The first one back, Abrams says, is worth keeping an eye on.

"It's one of my favorite episodes that we've done," he said. "It is particularly retro and weird. It's a really cool episode."

Fringe Quotes

Peter: Hello. Walter is that you? I can hear you breathing.
Janitor: Is this Peter Bishop?
Peter: Yes.
Janitor: I'm calling from NY. I know this is going to sound crazy but I just saw a woman disappear in front of my eyes.
Peter: Who is this?
Janitor: Her name was Olivia. She has a message for you; she's trapped in the other universe

You, Olivia, have the ability to bend things with your mind. That's what you're doing in this drawing, if you look at it the right way.

Walter
