‘Fringe’ Season 5 Teaser Trailer & Poster: ‘They Are Coming’

Published 3 years ago by

It may be the final season, but Fox’s Sci-Fi drama Fringe intends to go out with a bang. After a startling season 4 finale that saw the return of William Bell as well as the “death” and resurrection of Olivia Dunham  – season 5 is going to new heights with an impending full-on invasion, as it seems like The Observers aren’t too keen on just observing any more.

The final chapter of Fringe will kick off with “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11,” which takes place in the dystopian Observer-run future of 2036, and will continue the events touched upon in the fourth season episode “Letters of Transit.” The fifth and final season will begin on September 28 and will consist of 13 episodes.

Speaking of September, check out the bad-ass, ominous ‘They Are Coming’ poster that features ‘September’ – the only Observer that is on the side of the humans. (Click to enlarge):

With production in full swing, Fringe season 5 will be making do without longtime executive producer/showrunner Jeff Pinkner, as he announced his departure from the series last month – leaving J.H. Wyman as sole showrunner.  [SEASON 4 SPOILER AHEAD!] Also not returning this season is Seth Gabel, whose character special agent Lincoln Lee was written off the series when he opted to stay in the alternate dimension at the end of season four.

With the Fringe Comic-Con panel being held on Sunday, July 15th from 10am-11am in Hall H, Wyman is not giving anything up, just saying:

“If I give you any spoilers, it will just force me to go back in time and prevent myself from answering this question. So if you wouldn’t mind, I should probably save us all the trouble and the potential paradoxes.”

For those worried about the big jump to the future – not to worry, this season will fill in the blanks that got us to where we are now by bouncing back and forth in time.  It is also said to contain “a wonderful reunion of mother and daughter” As well as Walter, Olivia, Astrid and Peter becoming more insurgents than FBI Agents.

Big things definitely seem to be popping off this year for the big Fringe farewell – but even with the very limited details there are plenty of burning questions this year. Acting as renegade insurgents means our favorite Fringe team will certainly be in more perilous situations – how will they survive without the benefit of all their fancy toys and unlimited resources? What will Walter’s ultimate fate/redemption be? What help (if any) will the non-amber-sealed old man Broyles be? And the major question of the year is really: Who’s going to make it out alive?

  1. I have never seen Fringe but I think I will check it out after I finish watching Enterprise. Im finally almost done watching all the star trek movies and series (except for the animated series, dont know if Im gonna check that out or not), Ive watched TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and now im halfway through season 2 of Enterprise. They have been consuming my life for over a year now so i will need a new series to watch when im all done with them and Fringe looks like a good show to watch.

    • I have to fully endorse Fringe, it’s a great show with very well written characters. A lot of people compare it to the X-Files and while I do see certain similar elements – I feel it stands up as something new.

      • “White Tulip”.
        those words alone are enough to set Fringe FAR above the level of X-files… at least, the final season of X-files.

    • You really owe it to your self to watch the Animated Star Trek Show !
      Stories are Cool and the voice acting has some of the Original TOS series !

      • AMEN to that. Nothing can compare to Fringe. It is the BEST SHOW EVER.

        • I also want to check out lost and Firefly to eventually

  2. So sad to see it end, unfortunately in Australia, we are so far behind, and when they do put it on it’s only for a couple of weeks, can even buy the dvds before the shows get played here !!!!

    • Its like that in New Zealand also. Season 4 started last month but I only found out a week ago so Ive missed the first 3 episodes :(

  3. Just hope Leonard Nimoy continues to be in this final season!

  4. Really excited for the final season! Can’t wait for it to begin!!!

    By the way SR staff. You should consider adding a spoiler alert at the first paragraph. The little bit of Bell’s return and Olivia’s encounter with him at the season finale could ruin it for those who haven’t seen it!

  5. Fringe has become my life, not that I had much of one. I am so upset they ended it with the 4th season. There was no closure so I hope that the fifth season really does come and it’s not a hoax. I am trying to watch lost now, but I just can’t get into it. I keep comparing everything to fringe. Bald guy Lock in Lost is the observer. Anytime a telephone rings, Dunham. Ahh, I don’t watch much T.V but Fringe had me hooked and I am stoked about the Fifth season coming, if it does. There is no other show like Fringe, even the X-Files couldn’t compare.
