For a final season that should be shedding more mystery than it creates, we found ourselves rather baffled yesterday when 'Fringe' season 5 introduced a new viral campaign urging vieweres to "trust the tapes," a strange concept given we had no idea to what tapes it referred. Now, with 'Fringe' season 5 set to debut its second episode tonight "In Absentia," what do the sneak-peek clips tell us about 'Fringe's' final season, and the mysterious tapes?
'Fringe' may be on its last legs, set to air the second episode of its fifth and final season "In Absentia" this Friday night, but just because the series has become laser-focused on its plot to rid the planet of its Observer overlords doesn't mean there isn't room for some fun casting and sci-fi references! Singer, actress and poet Jill Scott will join the 'Fringe' team for its final 13-episode season, for a role that should sound awfully familiar to 'Matrix' fans...
FOXThe battle against the Observers has begun, as ‘Fringe’ season 5 travels back to the future in its first episode of the final season, as the team struggles to recover Olivia Dunham from amber, before Walter's capture nearly derails their entire plan to take back the planet from their bald overlords.
Last season’s ‘Fringe’ finale “Brave New World, Part 2” saw the team foiling the universe-ending plans of William Bell (Leonard Nimoy), before Olivia discovered herself to be pregnant and September appeared to warn Walter of the coming invasion, so how does “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11” get the final season started? How will season 5 of 'Fringe’ close out the epic saga?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Fringe’ season 5 premiere , “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11!”
It may be the beginning of the end for 'Fringe' tonight, but since when has time ever been linear? The critically-adored, yet ratings-challenged cult sci-fi hit kicks off its final season tonight with "Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11" (Spoiler Alert: we've seen, and loved it), but series show-runner J.H. Wyman would almost prefer you think of the final episodes as a "13-hour feature film saga." Find out how things will be different in these last 13 episodes, and what surprises are still in store!
Sure, there are lots of series making their fall premieres this week, everything from 'New Girl' to 'Modern Family,' but how can we even pretend to be excited for those when 'Fringe' returns for its fifth and final season this very Friday? The Observer invasion is iminent as we count down the days to "Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11," but why wait when we've got three spoiler-y new clips to check out?
We've been talking quite a bit about the Emmys today, and with good reason, but there comes with the award a tinge of sadness that 'Fringe' has never been acknowledged for the major categories. Still, with 'Fringe' set to begin its fifth and final season this Friday, September 28, it's time to start talking! We've seen bits and pieces of footage so far, but how would you like to see the most epic, brain-scanningly good trailer to date?
Fans of 'Fringe' have long been used to the show's ultra-slick feel, everything from the sleek future technology seen throughout the series, to the dynamic offices of... well, Massive Dynamic. Still, as the show moves into its fifth, and final season, things are going to get a lot bleaker and a whole lot more dirty as season premere "Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11" sees the team re-uniting in the future for their ragtag rebellion against their Observer overlords. To that end, what does the ragged new 'Fringe' poster have the team looking like?
The fall TV season has officially gotten underway, though we're still another few weeks away from the long awaited debut of 'Fringe's final season. On September 28, we'll learn what it is to have our daily lives dominated by Fringe division and The Observers, but what of the poor rebel Fringe team? Would you turn in either of the Bishops, if you saw them on the street? Find out with the new creepy viral promo!
After all the photos we saw earlier today of an Observer-ridden 2036, and the dank underworld it forces outlying citizens into, we're starting to think the future presented in 'Fringe's final season might not be so bad after all. Plenty of sharp-dressed overlords, free brain-scans, and designated living quadrants? That sure would cut down on travel constraints! Still, the resistance is ever-resistant, so what do we learn from 'Fringe's latest viral PSA?
All week we've been catching glimpses of the year 2036, by which we mean the first photos of 'Fringe's' upcoming final season, set to premiere on Friday, September 28. But for as cool as the photos were, we couldn't help noticing that one particular 'Fringe' member was missing, the very same agent who'd been missing from the final season's introductory episode "Letters of Transit!" So now that FOX has unleashed the full photo set, do we finally learn their fate?
