Fringe Fans Celebrate in Style During Final Season Panel Session in Hall H


BURBANK, Calif. (July 15, 2012) — Crossing over for the final time, the acclaimed thriller Fringe (season premiere September 28, Fridays 9/8c FOX) occupied the massive — and dynamic — Hall H at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2012, the world’s greatest pop culture convention. To make the Fringe team — and fans — feel at home, Warner Bros. Television gave out 6,000 of the show’s iconic Observer fedoras to attendees. And the fans not only approved…they “observed!”


  • Celebrating the show’s fifth and final season, series stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Jasika Nicole and John Noble joined executive producer J.H. Wyman at the show’s farewell panel session on Sunday, July 15, to answer fans’ burning questions and look at what lies ahead for the climactic conclusion of the acclaimed sci-fi series, when the show jumps forward to 2036 and the world is controlled by the mysterious Observers.


Renewed for its fifth and final season, Fringe continues to explore new cases with endless impossibilities. From Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, Fringe premieres September 28 and airs Fridays at 9/8c on FOX. Become a fan of Fringe on Facebook at and follow the show on Twitter @FRINGEonFOX. Warner Home Video will release Fringe: The Complete Fourth Season of Fringe on Blu-ray™ and DVD on September 4.

    I have watched every episode so far and looking forward to final season.

  • Deadbeat

    I’ve also watched every episode and am thankful Fringe gets a final season to wrap up the storylines. It’s been one of the best shows on TV. I know many don’t appreciate the Sci-Fi aspect, and the alternate reality, but what amazing stories Fringe has produced!

  • Dennis

    Oh how I want one :(

    ….I’ll check e-bay later :)

    Also I’ve read some of the cast got a bit teary when talking about their favourite scenes

  • John A

    Really looking forward to the final season. Sounds like a great ending coming.

  • AppleStinx

    Hey, TVbtN could get one of those fedoras and give to whoever correctly guesses the ratings for the final episode. :grin:

  • Dennis


    1.5 in the demo and 3.6 million :)

    Take note

    From Deadline:

    Comic-Con: ‘Fringe’ Film Possible, Cast Says

    There might be a Fringe movie, at least if members of the cast have their way. “The film is very possible down the line,” John Noble said today at the show’s Comic-Con panel. “The show will live on in some form or another,” added fellow cast member Joshua Jackson.

    Ratings still matter!

  • ABCFanatic2012

    I hope the final season will be a good season.

    Season 4 was dreadful.

  • John A

    No way a movie will be made. Why actors say this makes me mad. It was truly lucky to get 5 seasons.

  • Orcbighter

    Season 4 ended with a nice cliffhanger.
    I await with anticipation for Season 5.

  • Jiji Moran

    I would’ve preferred T-Shirts with the “Fringe” logo (double “F”)on them.

  • Jiji Moran

    The Observers took over our civilization… kinda like it happened to the Incas. I hope that “Fringe” puts a spinoff on this, to explain at the end of the series that it’s the year 2012 and we as a civilization become extinct, as it happened to the Incas way back then, at the hands of the Observers.

    Sorry, lack of sleep and the hallucinations, everything is okay, I think.

    Gotta love “Fringe.”

  • eric

    such a good panel… and i got my hat

  • Stewart

    I really hope they don’t make a movie, as that means the show won’t get a true ending as they willleave it open for the movie!

    I would rather they give the show a proper ending that leave it open for a movie that would probably never happen!
