WonderCon Fringe panel revelations… but no ‘official’ word on Season 5 yet

March 20th, 2012 by Marc Comments


Yesterday’s WonderCon Fringe presentation showed a clip of the next (US) episode of the series and showed Olivia delaring her love for Peter to Nina: I’m in love with Peter. … It’s like I‘ve known him my entire life.” and she adds that she has memories of Peter that no-one else, including Walter, remember.. she is starting to remember the universe before Peter was erased.

The panel was attended by executive producers Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman and stars Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop), John Noble (Walter Bishop), Blair Brown (Nina Sharp) and Seth Gabel (Lincoln Lee).

Comic Book Resources has the highligts of the Q&A that followed the clip: the first big question was whether Peter Bishop still thinks he’s in the wrong universe. “I can’t answer you,” Jackson replied

Noble shared how his character has evolved since the beginning of this season, as this time around Walter has been the one resisting the relationship between father and son. The actor shared that his character is sad, and not as much fun without Peter – or, as he put it, “very bleak.”

Brown jokingly revealed that she found her double to be really interesting because the viewer has to be careful and observant to know which Nina is on screen at any given time.

Asked if Peter and Olivia were actually the Adam and Eve, or progenitors, of the future Observers, Jackson could once again only answer, “Not saying anything.”

Noble how he loves his character’s one-liners, saying, “I always try to get Lance (Agent Broyles) to laugh because Broyles doesn’t laugh”. He added that his character’s infamous line about women having a “Vagenda” was one of his favorites, and got everyone to break character on set.

The future of the show and the possibility of a fifth season still aren’t known. “We won’t say anything until we know,” Wyman said, adding that they change the show to stay on the air. “Our concern is the fans and how we leave it. We would tell you if we knew.”

Pinkner added that, “the end of Season 4 should make everything worthwhile,” but also set up storylines for a fifth season.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
