Fox Renews Fringe for Season 5!

by at . Comments

Exhale, Fringe fans. And... now celebrate! Fox has picked up this cult favorite for a fifth and final season. It will air 13 episodes in 2012-2013.

Fringe is a remarkably creative series that has set the bar as one of television’s most imaginative dramas. Bringing it back for a final 13 allows us to provide the climactic conclusion that its passionate and loyal fans deserve,” said President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly. “The amazing work the producers, writers and the incredibly talented cast and crew have delivered the last four seasons has literally been out of this world. Although the end is bittersweet, it’s going to be a very exciting final chapter.”

Fringe airs a new episode tomorrow night and its season four finale on May 11. You can read about what's to come via this set of Fringe spoilers.

Said producer J.J. Abrams of the renewal news:

“We are thrilled and beyond grateful that FOX – and our fans – have made the impossible possible: Fringe will continue into a fifth season that will allow the series to conclude in a wild and thrilling way. All of us at Bad Robot are forever indebted to our viewers and the amazingly supportive FOX network for allowing the adventures of Fringe Division to not only continue, but to resolve in a way that perfectly fits the show.”

I'm so glad they get to end it right! In a perfect world this would be the most popular show and the creative team would get the seasons they need to fully flesh out the story as they envision it. But I'm not complaining. I'm glad they're going to be back!

WOOO!they get an entire year to figure out how to end it. The worst is when a show doesn't know it's being cancelled and so there's no good resolution- i'm looking at you veronica mars. Now all that needs to happen is community to be renewed and everything will be right in the world

I AM glad that Fringe is coming back, but sad that it is only 13 episodes and is the last season. I know 5 seasons in this age is a lot, but it will be hard to say goodbye. What will my favorite show become after Fringe leaves?
