After the Fox series FRINGE was moved to Friday nights earlier this season, it looked as if another season of the strange sci-fi series was a remote possibility at best.
However, good news fans – Fox has given the series a fourth season renewal and Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this announcement.
“When we moved the show to Fridays, we asked the fans to follow and they did. We’re thrilled to bring it back for another full season and keep it part of the FOX family,” says Reilly in today’s press release.
For Abrams, he’s just as jazzed (and why wouldn’t he), noting, “We could not be happier that the fans of FRINGE (and our most excellent partners at FOX) have allowed us to continue telling stories from the fringe for another season!”
And even better, this allows showrunners and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman to craft a very cool Season Three finale (rather than wrapping the show up prematurely).
“This early pickup comes at a perfect time as we start production on the Season Three finale,” Pinkner and Wyman in a joint statement. “We join the cast and crew in thanking our loyal fans and FOX for allowing us to have this much fun telling stories we love.”
