Fringe (Fox) returns with season 4
My cover of the upcoming Fall season for science fiction and fantasy fans continues.
Fringe is one of my favorite shows all categories. It is something of a modern Archive X with a great following even if one could be happier with the ratings. It will be back this Fall after a game changing season finale this Spring. Peter Bishop connected the two universes with the machine then he ceased to exist so this season starts with Peter gone. Much has Changed is Fox theme for this new season.
I doubt Peter is gone forever especially after his appearance at Comic-Con but we might have to wait and see. But one can speculate a bit about it. Rumors that he would come back as someone else has been denied and he has a contract for this season. The question is rather when he is coming back.
The new situation can be interesting. We have two Olivia, Two Fringe teams and a lot of interesting technology not to forget the animosity between the two Walters. Will there be joint missions? or will they raise a new iron curtain between the two realms? A popular speculation is that Peter will become an Observer. I am interesting how people’s lives has changed without Peter. Olivia could be a totally different person and Walter never kidnapped Peter from the other universe so why did he go there? Interesting questions …
One thing we can be sure of is that the fringe events have not been stopped by the merger or there wouldn’t be a show.
The first episode will be called
A Sort of Homecoming Neither Here Nor There but rumor has it that Peter won’t be in it.
