We we all know it’s coming, but we still don’t want to admit. Be we have to.

Fringe has announced its final air date – January 18, 2013. And it will be a two-hour finale. It will also be the 1ooth episode. So it all worked out well. Except for the fans. But we all know that all good things must come to an end.

Series creator J.J. Abrams weighs says: “It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of Fringe. I will always owe the cast and crew for pouring their hearts and souls into every dimension of this series.”

Sadly, Fringe has almost always struggled with the viewing figures, but thanks to a wonderful concept, loveable performances – we’re dreading the Walter Bishop sized void in our lives after January – and passionate fandom, Fringe was allowed to end on its own terms. What that will be in anyone’s guess, but w’ll all be on the safa that night…

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….
