In an interview with Collider, FRINGE executive Joel Wyman revealed that the supernatural FOX series will end its run with a three-part finale. "I am writing and directing it, so I know exactly what it is," he explained. "It's important - as important as it is to the fans, it's important to me. I just want it to be perfect." He added, "I know for sure that, at the end of it all, when it's done, I will stop at nothing to make sure it's exactly as I envisioned it... because I want to deliver something that I'm proud of."
The showrunner described the final three episodes of the series as a "continuance" of the same story arc. "It's basically a three-hour [finale] - they're not [airing] on the same night, that's all," he said. "But it's a continuance - a lot of the story wraps up in those three episodes at the end."
Set in Boston, the FBI’s Fringe Division started when Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv) enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, PETER (Joshua Jackson), to help in an investigation of an airline disaster that defied human logic. After the defining case was solved and furthermore revealed to be one of a series of unusual incidents linked together, the unlikely trio – supervised by Special Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and assisted by ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole) – was formed. Rounding out the roster is LINCOLN LEE (Seth Gabel), an agent from “over there” who serves as an integral part of the narrative.
