FOX have decided that five seasons of Fringe is enough for them. The TV Show which premiered on the Fox Broadcasting network on September 9, 2008 will conclude on January 18, 2013, with a two-hour series finale.
Is this the end?
But is this really the end for Peter, Olivia, Walter and Astrid? We’ve seen it happen before where another network has picked up a show after it has finished. It happened with Supernatural, they began on the WB Network but are now part of the CW Network’s lineup. Futurama has a similar story with Fox, the original broadcaster cancelling the show, only for it to get revived again for Comedy Central. So why not a sixth season of the show? It is a huge hit with fans from all over the world, and I’m sure there’s still a market out there for it.
Well, it could become a reality. There have been some talks of another network picking it up. There are rumours that it all depends on whether or not the cast still want to do it, and apparently Anna Torv is all for it! I guess it depends on Joshua Jackson and John Noble. John is 64 years old now and has been having some health problems recently.
Could the show work without Peter and Walter Bishop? How would it work without them? They are Fringe division. Having said that, they have created other universes and traveled through time.
How could it work?
There could be a season focusing on the young Walter Bishop and William Bell.
Could future seasons (if they happen) be shifted to focus on Etta Bishop? She was certainly loved by the fans. Besides, there’s 20 years of story there.
They’ve created parallel universes and traveled through time, so why not? The original cast could make guest appearances.
There’s plenty of scope for the show and I would love to see this show get another 5 seasons. What do you guys think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. The fans petitioned and campaigned for this fifth season. So why not do the same thing for further seasons?
