Fringe is a series very dear to us, we love it. A lot.
So the final season will be sad for us as there’s a wealth of stories in there that will never be told… in fact, if John Noble is right, we may already have lost out in a lot of the stories as the show does a Dollhouse on us…
One of the highlights of last season was the episode ‘Letters of Transit’ which was set in 2036 and focused on the Fringe team in a future that has fallen apart.
Well, John Noble has said that… SPOILERS!
Really… go no further if you want to avoid SPOILERS
OK, on your own head be it…
John Noble has said that the whole of the final season will be set in 2036.
“As far as I know, we’re just jumping ahead [to 2036], and there will be references [to the missing years].
“Walter, Olivia, Astrid and Peter are insurgents, so we know all the dirty tricks that have been played against us. We’ll be learning from the past.”
One concern was that in ‘Letters of Transit’ Olivia (Anna Torv) was missing, however Noble assures us: “she’ll be back”.
So what lies beyond… in the future? Noble goes on: “Walter is the man who started this, so there has to be resolution, there has to be redemption. I would love to see the Peter (Joshua Jackson) Walter relationship come back to where it was.
“We also have to see the final maturing of the relationship between Peter and Olivia, because it has been so difficult for them and we want them so much to be with each other.” – thanks to Digital Spy
This is all good news as it seems that, despite the fact that much will need to be skipped to get to the future, closure is in the show’s sights.
Fringe will return to Fox on Friday, September 28 at 9/8c. In the UK, the series airs on Sky1.
WE will be interviewing the lovely Jasike Nicole – Astrid in Fringe – this Thursday and broadcasting it on our live radio show on Thursday night at 9pm (est). Listen live through the link at the top of our home page.
