Release date [UK] May 20, 2013
The Final Season of Fringe comes a few months earlier than the releases for seasons 1 through 4! Probably because of the shorter season of course, which is 13 episodes. It is very rare these days that a sci-fi series gets a real ending. Of course it's almost a miracle Fringe lasted five seasons because the ratings dropped hard, still in my opinon one of the best tv shows at the moment.
As I'm writing this we have a few episodes left to go but I'm confident the ending will be satisfying! About the Blu-Ray release itself, it's a 3-disc release, it has English and a Spanish soundtrack and has at least English subs. The UK release is an all regions release! No word yet about the extra's.

Mark your calendars as Fox has announced the air date for the final episode of the highly underrated sci-fi series ‘Fringe.’ It looks like the New Year will be starting off with a bang and an ending on January 18, 2013.
Originally the final episode was thought to be airing in February as showrunner J.H. Wyman’s tweet had us to believe. But along with the official air date, it was also announced that the series would air the conclusion as a two hour finale that will also celebrate the show’s 100th episode.

Fringe showrunner J.H. Wyman is taking a particularly hands-on role in ushering the show into the sunset by directing the series finale. But when that sci-fi swan song will air is up for debate.
Earlier this week, Wyman himself told a fan on Twitter that the series finale would air Feb. 1, 2013. Fox declined to confirm that date; sources tell TVLine the finale will air sometime after Jan. 1, however. The fifth and final season, premiering Sept. 28, will have “two little breaks,” Wyman suggested to TVLine during our fall preview interview. “Four [episodes], and then two… and the rest is a[n uninterrupted] run-on” — landing the finale in mid-January, at least. And while the twisty-turny saga will not culminate in any sort of two-hour TV-movie — “It’s definitely going to be in the one-hour slot,” Wyman says — Episodes 11, 12 and 13 “are like a three-parter,” he shares. All told, Wyman envisions and is structuring Fringe’s farewell tour “as a 13-hour feature film type of thing, like a saga, because I feel that’s the best way to tell the end.” I could not agree more!

The character of William Bell has come a long way in four seasons of Fox's Fringe, and acting legend Leonard Nimoy says his latest persona (probably) isn't quite finished yet. So what can we expect from the maddest scientist of all in the show's fifth and final season?
Nimoy said he was intrigued by William Bell's story arc at the end of season four, which enticed him to come back for a surprising (and awesome) cameo as the puppet master behind the season's Big Bad.
"It was explained to me that we're opening up a whole world, and William Bell is being recreated as something else. He's in another universe and has taken on other characteristics. There were challenges in the character itself that were attractive to me. I could play aspects that I haven't played in a long time, so it was very welcoming to me."
If J.J. Abrams' plan for William Bell is as exciting for season five, Nimoy said he would definitely consider coming back for the final year—just to see how things evolve for the less "rational" version of Bell.
"It will depend on what they have in mind for the character. There are a lot of issues that have to be dealt with, but we'll be talking," he said. "The William Bell character started as a very intelligent and rational character. I think he's still very, very intelligent, but I'm not quite so sure that he's rational anymore."
Sound off: Would you like to see Nimoy back for Fringe's final 13 episodes?

Fringe's fall return will be bittersweet in more ways than one. Not only is it the drama's last season, but the show's losing a castmember. Shortly after becoming a series regular, Seth Gabel has been put out to pasture.
Gabel, who played Agent Lincoln Lee, is no longer a fixture on Fringe. The last time we saw his character, he moved to the other side to join Fauxlivia. After he left, the bridge was closed, meaning our chances of seeing him with the gang again are slim to none.
In a recent interview with TVLine, Anna Torv (Olivia) revealed, "I don't think [we'll see Lincoln again]. Unless we go to the other side, no."
But in the Fringe world isn't anything possible? Have we really seen the last of the nerdy, lovelorn agent? A Fringe insider isn't ruling out a guest appearance from Gabel in the future.
We'd love to see Lee return, with Fauxlivia and maybe Charlie in tow. Since it's the show's final season, anything is possible.

Fox announced Thursday that the show has been renewed for a fifth and final season of 13 episodes, giving producers the chance to end the series on their terms.
howrunners Jeff Pinkner and J. H. Wyman, who've been planning for the worst , released a statement promising fans they'd deliver a proper curtain call for the series.
"This pickup means the world (both of them) to us, because we love sharing these stories with our enthusiastic fans. On behalf of the cast and crew, we applaud our fans and Fox for allowing us to imagine the impossibilities together for so long. Season Five is going to be a conclusive thrill ride for all of us.
Not only does this mean the show will get a fully imagined conclusion rather than an abrupt season four ending, but it also puts it at the critical 100-episode mark that makes syndication in the future all the more likely. It's a great day for Fringe fans, no matter what universe you're living in.

While we wait with bated breath to learn whether Fox will bring the beloved sci-fi drama Fringe back for a fifth season, there's a new rumor that the show could potentially find second life in an admittedly unlikely place.
We already know the producers have a comic book contingency plan if Fox pulls the plug, TV Guide's guru Matt Roush has now raised the question of how likely it could be for the show to move to another network. Namely, The CW.
"I've begun to wonder if Warner Bros., which produces the show, might turn to one of its primary distribution arms, The CW, to keep Fringe alive for however much of a fifth season they need to wrap things up," he wrote in his latest column. "(Just speculating here; haven't heard a thing and wouldn't necessarily expect it to happen.) One of my favorite aspects of the Fringe experience is watching it reinvent itself every season. I'd love to see it get this last chance."
It may sound a little farfetched, but it actually makes some sense. Warner Bros. makes the show and has a big stake in The CW, so why not marry the two for an abbreviated final season to make the show more attractive for syndication? Fringe's ratings on Fox are admittedly low, making it a long shot at most other nets, but if it could pull similar numbers at the struggling CW it could be a bona fide hit.
What do you think? Would you follow the show if it jumped networks?

The cast of Fringe have shot two different endings to the current fourth season.
The sci-fi drama's future is currently in doubt, with ratings falling to a series low of 2.87m in recent weeks.
"We've shot two [endings]," John Noble (Walter Bishop) confirmed to TVLine.
"The way [season four] ends could function as a series finale, but there's one storyline left open that could end up as a cliffhanger for the beginning of the fifth season," added Lance Reddick (Broyles).
"We'll see what airs depending on what [Fox and WBTV] decide."
Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) also revealed that a "door" to a potential fifth run is "opened" in the upcoming episode 'Letters of Transit', airing April 20.
"If you watch that, you'll have an understanding of where [the writers] want to take the series," hinted Jackson. "The writers have given themselves a device by which we can tell a fifth season story without having to leave this season's story open."

Fringe could be renewed for a fifth and final season, reports suggest.
It is possible that the sci-fi drama will return to Fox for a shorter run, composed of just 15 episodes, according to TVLine.
The current fourth season of Fringe has seen the show struggle in the ratings, with midseason premiere 'Back to Where You've Never Been' pulling in just 2.87m viewers. Last week's (February 17) instalment 'A Better Human Being' rose slightly to 3m. Series star Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) recently hinted that the series could continue "off network" if Fox declines to recommission it.
"I think there's a possibility that if people just watched the show on the day and date, and if the numbers came back, [renewal] is a possibility [on Fox]," he said. "[But] the TV landscape is a different place than it used to be, so [cancellation on Fox] might not be death."

Fringe‘s best episode of Season 4 to date sadly drew the Fox series’ lowest rating to date, dropping 15 percent week-to-week to a 1.1 — and on 11/11/11 (as one Tweeternoted). Fringe had matched its previous all-time low, a 1.2 rating, with this season’s second episode, but notched increases here and there since. For those who hope for a fifth season, don't count on it, we should be grateful if the fourth season will end with dignity in terms of storyline....but also ratings!

Looks like someone’s going to take advantage of that fancy new “bridge” between universes next season on Fringe — and that someone is Seth Gabel! Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the actor — who has recurred the last two seasons as Bolivia’s “Over There” colleague, Lincoln Lee — will return in Season 4 as a full-fledged series regular.
