One of the big wins for the Fox network last season was the risky move of its signature science-fiction series FRINGE from Thursday nights to Fridays – resulting in sustained ratings and giving Fox a stronghold on what has been a traditionally difficult night for them. At today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association session with Fox Entertianment President Kevin Reilly, he says their expectations for FRINGE going into Season 4 on Fridays is more of the same. “One of the good things of having a strong network is we can support creative shows that should be on the air,” says […]Read On »

Wyman, Akiva Goldsman Network: Fox, Airs Fridays Original Telecast: May 7, 2011 Warning spoilers ahead … They didn’t just really kill off Peter (Joshua Jackson) on FRINGE, right? I mean that would be outrageous. That would be the biggest twist/development on the show ever. That would be totally freaking awesome. Don’t get me wrong. I love the character (and Jackson playing the role has grown on me) but just the fact that they would kill off one of the main characters […]Read On »

While speaking with FRINGE executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman this morning, they revealed a tiny bit about what the Season 3 finale plans will be. “We have sort of approached each end of season to be the end of story for year and also open up the door and imply and be first taste of what next seasons story telling would be,” says Wyman. “We believe this season finale does that. Hopefully it will be wholly unexpected and recontexualize the story of Season 3 in a way and be mind-blowing.” Wyman does confirm an important character will die, […]Read On »
