Fringe: The Big Guide to Series Finale Coverage

fringe series finaleAfter five seasons and 100 episodes, it’s time to say goodbye to Fringe, FOX’s beloved but low-rated sci-fi TV series. The audience may be small but it’s certainly a devoted one.

The series finale has inspired a lot of great online coverage about the series and the last episode. Rather than recreate the wheel, I’ve tried to find the best and aggregate it below.

TV Guide: An oral history of Fringe with John Noble (Dr. Walter Bishop), Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop), Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham), Jasika Nicole (Astrid Farnsworth), Lance Reddick (Phillip Broyles), Blair Brown (Nina Sharp), Seth Gabel (Lincoln Lee), series co-creator J.J. Abrams, executive producers J.H Wyman and Bryan Burk, Warner Bros. President Peter Roth and Fox’s Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly.
