Season 4

"Fringe" Season 4 promises to be mind-blowing as it continues to explore new cases with endless impossibilities.

Set in Boston, the FBI's Fringe Division started when Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) enlisted institutionalized "fringe" scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), to help in an investigation of an airline disaster that defied human logic. After the defining case was solved and furthermore revealed to be one of a series of unusual incidents linked together, the unlikely trio — supervised by Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) — was formed. Rounding out the roster is Lincoln Lee (Seth Gabel), an agent from "over there" who serves as an integral part of the narrative.

As unimaginable events continued to unfold, the Fringe Division's investigations often lead them to the important science and technological corporation Massive Dynamic and its enigmatic chief executive, NINA SHARP (Blair Brown). Olivia discovered that she was a test subject of Dr. Bishop and Massive Dynamic's elusive founder and chairman William Bell (guest star Leonard Nimoy) as a child. When she uncovered this, she learned of a parallel universe and discovered her ability to detect anything from this alternate world. Shockingly, it was eventually revealed that Walter kidnapped Peter as a child from "over there" after his Peter died, thus creating an imbalance between the two universes.

As life in these two interconnected worlds was explored, complications quickly began to ripple. Peter's romance with alternate Olivia resulted in a baby, and the DNA from this child allowed alternate Walter to activate a "doomsday device" — a device he believed would destroy our world in order to save his. Ultimately, Peter used this device to build a bridge between the two worlds and sacrificed himself in the process.

"Fringe" Season 4 will reset the show's contentious context as the Fringe teams must work together to heal their worlds, and solve cases in both. This season will examine the consequences of our heroes' actions in Season Three. Peter saved the day. But in the process, he ceased to exist. His influence on our characters' lives never happened. So what now?

Created by J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, "Fringe" is produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman and Joe Chappelle serve as executive producers, while Kurtzman, Orci and Akiva Goldsman are consulting producers. Additionally, Pinkner and Wyman serve as the series' showrunners.


Season 3

Heading into its mind-bending third season, the critically acclaimed "Fringe" continues to explore otherworldly cases with endless impossibilities.

Set in Boston, the FBI's Fringe Division was introduced when Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) enlisted institutionalized "fringe" scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), to help in the investigation of an airline disaster that defied human logic. After the defining case was solved and revealed to be one of a series of unusual incidents linked together, the unlikely trio supervised by Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Junior Agent Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) was formed.

As unimaginable events continued to unfold over the first two seasons, the Fringe Division's investigations often led them to the multifaceted biomedical science, energy and technology corporation Massive Dynamic and its enigmatic chief executive Nina Sharp (Blair Brown). When Olivia discovered that she was a test subject as a child of Walter Bishop and Massive Dynamic's elusive founder and chairman William Bell (guest star Leonard Nimoy), it triggered a search for details about her forgotten and perplexing past. Her findings uncovered the existence of a parallel universe and she recovered her childhood ability to detect objects from this parallel universe, which shockingly led her to learn that Peter is from the "other side." As a result, Walter revealed that he kidnapped Peter as a child from the parallel universe 25 years ago.

At the conclusion of last season, a distraught Peter returned to his otherworldly origins to reconnect with his roots and his birth mother (guest star Orla Brady). When the Fringe Team mobilized to retrieve Peter, it was seen as an attack on the alternate universe and led to an intense situation with Walter and Olivia pitted against their doppelgangers in a race against time. William Bell made the ultimate sacrifice that paved the way for Peter to return "over here" with Walter and a disguised alternate Olivia at his side. This extraordinary turn of events shockingly left an imprisoned Olivia "over there." The quest to retrieve Peter from the parallel universe will raise questions about identity and choices this season. In the Season Three premiere, a disoriented Olivia fights to find her way home with the help of a taxi driver (guest star Andre Royo), and we are introduced to her mother (guest star Amy Madigan). Meanwhile, Peter and Walter try to move on with their lives unknowingly alongside alternate Olivia.


Season 2

"Fringe" continues to explore the unexplained phenomena and terrifying occurrences linked throughout the world — known simply as "The Pattern" — in pursuit of a larger, more shocking truth.

Set in Boston, the FBI's Fringe Division formed when Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) enlisted the help of institutionalized "fringe" scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), to save her partner and lover from a mind-bending death. Through unconventional and unorthodox methods, the "Fringe" team imagines and tests the impossibilities while investigating unbelievable events, macabre crimes and mystifying cases involving teleportation, reanimation, genetic mutation, precognition, artificial intelligence and other fantastical theories. When the unimaginable happens, it's their job to stop it.

Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) guides the group, while by-the-book Agent Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo) and Junior Agent Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) provide support and depth to the team. Underscoring the unfolding mysteries, enigmatic Massive Dynamic executive Nina Sharp (Blair Brown) asserts that the advancement of technology is changing the world of science, and conversely, the science of the world.

In the shocking season finale, Olivia's anticipated introduction to Walter Bishop's former lab partner and Massive Dynamic founder William Bell (guest star Leonard Nimoy) revealed the existence of a parallel universe and the ability to travel between the two worlds. This new universe has a different, intriguing history and holds secrets of its own, which was evident when Walter stunningly visited his son's gravestone.

Each episode of the sophomore season promises to uncover more about the larger threat and while some questions will be answered, new ones will surface. The intensity accelerates as Season Two opens with Olivia's shocking return to this reality, and a determined Peter, unknowingly in a race against time with an ominous mobile force, pursues information about Olivia's blurred and perplexing visit to the alternate reality. Meanwhile, Walter reenters the lab to cook up a bit of fringe science, and of course, some custard for someone's birthday.


Season 1

From J.J. Abrams ("Lost"), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the team behind "Star Trek," "Mission: Impossible III" and "Alias," comes FOX's "Fringe," a new series that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between the possible and the impossible.

When an international flight on "Fringe" lands at Boston's Logan Airport with no signs of life, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) is called in to investigate as part of an inter-agency task force. After her partner, Special Agent John Scott (Mark Valley), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), our generation's Einstein. There's only one catch: he's been institutionalized for the last 17 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son Peter (Joshua Jackson) in to help.

When Olivia's investigation on "Fringe" leads to multi-billion dollar corporation Massive Dynamic and its manipulative corporate executive, Nina Sharp (Blair Brown), our unlikely trio, along with Department of Homeland Security Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and FBI Agents Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo) and Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole), will discover that what happened on Flight 627 is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.

The "Fringe" pilot is directed by Emmy Award-winning Alex Graves ("The West Wing"), and the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions. J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers on "Fringe."
