New preview from tomorrow’s episode of Fringe “5×08 The Human Kind”
If you were counting on seeing Joshua Jackson or Anna Torv jump right into another TV role after Fringe wraps its series finale, you might want to take residence in the alt universe. Because both actors tell TVLine they likely will sit out the coming pilot season.
“I’ll probably skip this pilot season, for a variety of reasons,” Jackson shared with us at Fringe‘s 100th episode party held Dec. 1 in Vancouver, just days before filming began on the Warner Bros. TV drama’s final hour (airing Jan. 18 on Fox).
Among the TV vet’s considerations: “With the intensity of 22-episode television, I don’t know how healthy it is to try to jump from show to show,” he noted. “And I had the benefit, because of my first show (Dawson’s Creek), to be able to wait out on something really good like [Fringe], and they don’t come around every year just because you’re unemployed. So the next time around, I’ll be waiting for something as good as this.
Torv, meanwhile, told TVLine that since pilots for the 2013-14 TV season start casting “pretty soon” (aka early January) — after five intense Fringe seasons — “I really want to take a deep breath.”
A relative newcomer to U.S. audiences when she first inhabited the role of Olivia Dunham in 2008, the Aussie actress explained that “after any little jump that you do, you go through a period where you have to let go of your character. You sort of think about them and miss them, and then you put them to bed and you grieve them, and then that’s it. I’ve never played anybody for five years, so it’s going to take a bit of time for me to get her all out [of my system].”
Forgoing pilot season “is my immediate plan,” she added. “And then… I don’t know!”
Add my sadface to this post. I do hope Anna gets her break, but I do want her to be back on TV on some kickass show soon!

Even more photos from the Fringe 100th Episode and Finale Event Party are up in the gallery:
The cast and producers of Fox’s Fringe gathered at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver on Saturday night to celebrate the Warner Bros. TV series’ 100th — and final — episode. And now we have a title for that ultimate hour.
“It is called ‘An Enemy of Fate,’” series boss J.H. Wyman shared with TVLine on the red carpet.
Episode 100 is the second of two hours airing on Friday, Jan. 18.
And while Wyman leading up to and throughout this final season has repeatedly stressed the emotional stakes for Peter, Olivia, Walter et al during these last 13 episodes, make no mistake — this show is going out with a literal bang as well.
“It’s definitely the biggest season finale we’ve ever had,” Wyman promised. “It’s the most expensive…. It’s massive, really big. I wanted to go out like, ‘Wow, how did they do that?’”
“I wanted to make sure I handled [the action element] and the emotions with equal import,” he added.
Fringe resumes its fifth and final run on Friday, Dec. 7 with this season’s eighth episode, “The Human Kind.” What do you think “An Enemy of Fate” means?
