Posted April 26th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Though it has always struggled in ratings Fringe has been one of the best shows on television throughout its run. The low ratings have kept it on the bubble for renewal and against all odds it has continued through the fourth season airing now. Fox has given it the opportunity to do so because of the strong reviews, fan support, and it’s stable performance on Friday nights.

The network has decided to give Fringe a fifth and final season with a 13 episode order. This is great news for fans of the show as it means the storylines can be tied up and a proper conclusion for all the characters can be realized. A recent episode jumped ahead to 2036 leading many to believe that could be a potential direction for the series if it were to be picked up for another season.
