Greetings, Etta

Along with the date confirmation, the network released the following finale synopsis:

As the Fringe team fights for humanity’s future in the fifth and final season, the imaginative journey toward the end of the acclaimed series will culminate in a climactic conclusion during the two-hour final-two-episodes event Friday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This milestone date will also celebrate the series’ 100th episode.

Fringe has truly imagined the impossibilities over its five seasons and will go down in the books as one of Fox’s most riveting and creatively brilliant series,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It has been a blast to work with J.J., Joel and their masterful creative teams, as well as with Anna, Josh and John and the rest of the most talented cast and crew in the business.”

Fringe Season 5 continues tonight with a new episode, "An Origin Story."

I mean people with an appetite for premium series are left in the dark! Alcatraz, Terra Nova, House & Fringe!? and none of the shows that are airing at the moment are worth watching... all intelligent shows are gone, vanished ... this is really stupid and sad ... let us wait and see the comet of fox banging us with the cancellation of "The Simpsons" after the end of the 25th season ..
