TV trailer: ‘FRINGE’ season 4 finale will rock your (wool) socks [Update: the showrunners tease what's next]
If you thought part one of the two part Fringe season 4 finale was spectacular, just wait. After watching this movie-like trailer for “Brave New World: Part Two” you will surely see what I mean. (Spoiler!) Leonard Nimoy’s William Bell is back and he’s off his rocker. Will the Fringe team–including Bell’s former parter Walter Bishop (John Noble)–be able to stop him from collapsing the two universes so he can control a new one like a God? Ramp up anticipation for tonight’s epic season finale that airs at 9PM on FOX by watching this revealing clip. After the break you’ll find a bonus video featuring Nimoy and Noble discussing the new chapter that is about to unfold as we make our way to the final thirteen episodes of one the best sci-fi shows in history.
Jump after the break to view an excerpt from a recent interview with the Fringe showrunners.
Update: In a post-finale interview with TVLine, Fringe showrunners J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner cryptically discussed what’s in store for season 5:
September [in the final scene] was referring to the Observers [coming], to the events of 419 ["Letters of Transit"]. But going forward, it’s a who, what, where, when and why, for sure. It’s also a crescendo of everything that has come before it. Season 5 is designed to be very important, a huge payoff for loyal fans. They will feel like, “Because I invested in every single episode, and I have so many questions, I want these questions answered. And I want everything to be made sense of, but taken on a journey that just can’t be stopped. I want it to end in a place where I feel like everybody kind of belongs where they are and got what they’ve earned.” There will be a sense of satisfaction for those long-term viewers that go, “Wow, I really feel good. I feel OK about what has transpired, what I have watched. But I also can imagine life after that for our main characters.” So that’s what Season 5 is — and it’s a big responsibility!
Head over to TVLine to peruse the entire interview; in addition to discussing the final season, the executive producers talk up season 4′s “quiet, emotional” finale, the importance of episode 419, and they express just how happy they are to have been granted 13 more episodes to wrap things up for the fans. In their words, “…it was like, “Finally, I get some canvas to finish this picture.” And what a magnificent masterpiece Fringe is.
