Re: Will Fringe bow out with a fifth season?

the observer saying olivia will die is probably true becuse the timeline will just be reset and she will be alive and loving Peter again. Problem is the they just made the series too confusing for the average user and that has hurt the rating IMO.

Re: Will Fringe bow out with a fifth season?

With Terra Nova now cancelled.
House bowing out and Alcatraz only doing so-so, the odds have at least moved up to 50/50 now that Fringe may get some type of S5 depending on what they think is in the Pilot mix they are looking at I'd think.

Before Terra Nova got the ax I'd say Fringe being gone was almost a certainty.

I'm so behind on the show. I've only seen 1/2 the first season but own all 3 that are on DVD with intent to watch it eventually. I only have $32 tied up on the seasons so I feel good that it's going to pay off as entertaining eventually based on what little I've seen.

On the good side, Fringe is at a point where if could bow out with a cliffhanger that solves some mysteries, creates others and would still leave enough options in case the show is renewed despite people's expectations.

8 episodes to come-and I suspect that's all she wrote. Lucky for me Leverage and In Plain Sight are still going-I'm running out of shows.

Not for long. In Plain Sight's final season starts this month.

Some good news

This Just In: FRINGE has been upgraded from "could go either way" to "a safe bet" on TVLine's 2012 Renewal Scorecard!
They may get the 5th season but that's all the luck they'll get.

No 11th hour save after 5th season.

They need to wrap things up in the 5th season

It's already available on Netflix. They have DVD and Blu-Ray from all three completed seasons.

It needs to end. I have this feeling that somehow Blue and Orange are going to merge, what with Orange Olivia now being Blue Olivia, too. That way we won't quite lose all of the characterization that's been going on, but find a way for people to be happy again.

Cool. I would be happy with that. We'll see how this plays itself out.

That's exactly what I think is going to happen.

I'm sure they are going for a way to merge the universes. After all, the "orange" one is how things were supposed to be, had Walter not stolen Peter.

I have mixed feelings about Fringe. While I love the characters and the overall story arc, the one off, X-Files rip-off creature features got old quickly. The next time a television executive pitches a story with "FBI Agent deals with the supernatural" I hope he's tossed out on his ass.

I used to be pretty irritated with the show's writers lack of even a basic understanding of science, but I've gotten over it.

I thought Walter still steals red universe Peter, but the Observer doesn't save Peter from drowning in the orange universe lake, which is why the older version of Peter supposedly reappears in the same lake.

...and yes, you've got to ignore the bad science - a given for nearly all TV and movie sci-fi in any case - but the clue is in the name Fringe. I well remember all the nutty ideas that were floating around in the 70's.

Frankly, I'm surprised Fringe has managed to last four seasons. I had put it down to Anna Torv being James Murdoch's cousin, but that's just me being very silly.

Maybe whatever season 5 it gets will be just to get it over 100 episodes. That would only be around what 12-13 episodes?
