‘Fringe’ Season 4 Teaser Trailer: Where Is Peter Bishop?

Peter returns in this Fringe season 4 teaser Fringe Season 4 Teaser Trailer: Where Is Peter Bishop?

The tense wait for the fourth season of Fringe is almost over with its premiere airing in just under a month. Until then, fans will have to make due with usual assortment of cryptic clues in the form a of a new Fringe season 4 trailer.

There’s no doubt among Fringe observers that Joshua Jackson’s character Peter Bishop will return, but after last season’s cliffhanger ending, there’s no telling just how that will play out. It looks like Peter is still operating in some capacity, despite being apparently erased from both of Fringe‘s dual realities.

Jackson has been seen on the set, and according to reports, the crew was shooting for the third or fourth episode of the new season. That means it could be at least a few weeks after the premiere that fans get to see Peter in any fashion.

After a short fan service video, Jackson made a surprise appearance at the Fringe panel at Comic-Con 2011 last month. Jackson appeared in the video and on stage in the black suit and fedora of the mysterious Observers – take that for what it’s worth, considering the generally shoot-from-the-hip atmosphere at Comic-Con.

Then again, there’s at least one fedora’d figure in the following teaser video:

The short clips show Peter conversing with an over-the-shoulder character (possibly Anna Torv as Olivia), one of the enigmatic Observers explaining the situation to Walter, Peter leaning in to kiss the alternate Olivia, and the prime universe Olivia describing an undefinable sense of loneliness as “a hole in her life.”

Speculation about Peter’s role in the altered timeline has been rampant since the finale. While its obvious that Peter’s absence is felt by the remaining characters (Olivia prime, anyway), Jackson himself clarified just how his disappearance affected the rest of the world at Comic-Con: “It’s not that Peter’s consciousness isn’t here. Peter doesn’t exist. He’s gone.”

What does that mean for the rest of the Fringe teams? What does it mean for Peter? We’ll have to wait until September to find out.


Fringe returns to our universe on Friday, September 23rd on Fox.

  1. Cant wait for this!

  2. Peter didn’t lean in to kiss AltLivia. It was a projection of him kissing our Olivia when she was still over there starting the process of her realising she didn’t belong over there.

  3. Look forward to the new season. Fringe is an example of science fiction well done.

  4. Science Fiction well done indeed! Sep.23rd seems so far away :(

  5. Actually his not kissing the alternate Olivia in that clip. It’s the real Olivia after they had convinced her that she was the other Olivia and she was having hallucinations of Peter telling her that she didn’t belong there and that she needed to get back to her own reality. Just thought I’d clear that up and I’m DYING for season 4. Plus it premieres on my birthday so that makes me double the excited. Peter and Olivia are so amazing together!!!!!!!!!

  6. Please keep Peter and Olivia alive and don’t let the show die please

    • Agreed. If this show is cancelled I don’t know what I might do……… to my TV.

  7. Can’t wait to see the show I have to work that day so I might have to get someone to take my shift what a ling time sept 23 seems

  8. This show has gotten better and better season after season, and I just can’t wait for season 4 to start. Why hasn’t every sci-fi fan seen this show yet?!

    • Start a chain contact and get them on board we can’t let the show end this year

  9. It’s not clear in your description of the trailer, but the short clips are from each of the previous three seasons. The clip at the end with Olivia talking about loneliness may be from the upcoming season. Also, check out SYFY’s “ALPHAS”; it has a FRINGE feel to it and is pretty good.

  10. We need to make sure to get ALL our friends watch thus year need ro get numbers up let’s rally love show and Sontag want it to stop

  11. Can’t wait. It’s been a long, long summer. Fringe is the best.

  12. This is the BEST written and acted Scifi show I have seen. The script each episode keeps me on the edge of my chair. I prefer to tape the show so I can fast forward through the commercials to keep the tension mounting as it should. I hope it continues forever though I know realistically speaking that is impossible.

  13. I agree!!!! I wish we could come up with a “lets all watch and spread the word about the show campaign” I don’t want it to stop. I am afraid touch time is being put into the other new show teranova!!!! All of us together can do it if we put our science sides together!

  14. I Love , Love , Love this show i faithfully watch it every week and i am looking forward to this season ..

  15. Does anyone else have a sense of deja vu from Alias when JJ “killed off” Vaughn. I really hope that doesn’t mean this is the last season.

  16. OMG! Joshua Jackson is SOOOOO cute!!! I am breathless waiting for this season!
