The Twitterverse was buzzing last week with the news that Fringe was picked up for season five. I used to review the show over at the old TV Squad (since absorbed by the almighty Huffington Post), but admit to lapsing this season.
Still, I’m thrilled with the news, and it gives me a reason to get caught up on the current season. (Yes, I’m one of THOSE people. Hey, I have a lot of TV to watch for work, so I have to make sure I’m investing my time wisely.)
But you have to wonder if season five will indeed be “the final season” for Fringe, as the trailer below indicates. The show’s been on the bubble more than once, and moving it to the Friday night death slot only seemed to ensure its demise.
Only, it didn’t die. Fringe fans rose up en masse and rallied for — and were rewarded with — another season. Will they do it again next year? Will we have another Supernatural on our hands? That show was originally planned with a five-season arc, but the fans ralllied and here we are in season seven.
Happy about the Fringe news? Think we’ll get more Fringe after season five?
