Comic-Con 2012: Final Season of the Fox Series ‘Fringe’

Comic-Con 2012 came to end on Sunday and it was a tearful look-back for the Fringe casts’ final appearance.  Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop), Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham), John Noble (Walter Bishop), Lance Reddick (Phillip Broyles), and Jasika Nicole (Astrid Farnsworth) were on hand to share their favorite moments and expectations for the final season.  Fringe will be wrapping the final season of the show in the fall.

Lance Reddick became teary recalling his favorite scenes with Jasika Nicole, “You can’t go out and tell anybody this happened,” he joked.

Joshua Jackson talks about being ready to say goodbye to Fringe and the show having the opportunity to wrap-up its final season in a satisfactory way and not leaving fans hanging like some abruptly cancelled shows.  He also reveals what he believes to be the show’s greatest accomplishment.

“Yes, I’m ready because the opportunity we have to properly finish our show is maybe the rarest thing that can happen, in the television world.  The last two years, there has been a contingency plan to end the show, and we could have put a reasonably satisfying ending to any one of those seasons, but you still would have had to jam the ending in.  Now, we have 13 hours to tell a whole ending to this story, and I couldn’t be more excited about that.  It’s a gift for us, who make it, and it’s a gift for the fans, hopefully, if we don’t screw it up.  It’s the nice version of the story.  It’s the non-Firefly, non-Millennium version of the story, where everybody who has put in the time gets the chance to walk away.”

”[Fringe] is not unique in this because I think all good science fiction can accomplish this, particularly in the television format, but its greatest accomplishment is having human characters at the center of a huge, epic story, really having a believable heroine, and this beautiful father-son dynamic that is a very rare thing to put into a story.  John [Noble, who plays Walter Bishop] created this beautiful, human, broken, tortured, funny, witty, scary character that is totally unique and instantly relatable, which is the hardest thing in the world to do.  Maybe that’s our greatest accomplishment:  John Noble.”

Anna Torv reveals what she is looking forward to in the final season.

“Being able to put all of my heart into Olivia.  It’s the first time, in a couple of years, that I’ve just had her to play with.”
