Fringe producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman have dropped hints about the show’s third season finale.
Wyman told TV Line that the conclusion of the sci-fi drama’s current run will be “very complicated”.
“You’re going to understand our show in a different capacity,” he claimed. “It’s going to stretch your mind and make you think, ‘I never saw that coming’.
“We have a few cards to lay down that I don’t think anybody expects. That’s what we feel we owe the fans.”
Pinkner added: “Largely this season [so far] has been about the march to war, and it will continue to be so, driven equally by the relationship of Peter and the two Olivias, but we’ve got more stuff coming.”
Pinker also confirmed that the finale will be about “setting up [the] next season”, despite fan concerns about the show’s future.
“It’s like when you read a great novel and you finish a chapter, you’re like ‘Oh my gosh, something happened that’s going to propel me forward!’,” suggested Wyman. “That’s something we desire to emulate.”
Fringe continues on Fridays at 9/8c on Fox.
