Comic-Con 2012: Watch the Newest Futuristic Fringe Trailer (VIDEO)

They are coming! Today's teary-eyed Fringe panel at Comic-Con was punctuated by a new trailer from the best trailer-making department in the industry. As if we needed to get more excited (in a bittersweet way) about the final season of Fringe, the video below makes it clear that the hot-sauce-chugging Observers we saw in the time-jumping episode "Letters of Transit" are going to be a real pain in the ass in Season 5, and that we'll probably be spending a lot of time in 2036.

There's no new footage in the clip (I don't think), but Fringe folks have always had a way with re-cutting footage to make it feel new.


Fringe returns for its fifth final season September 28 on Fox.

was "fifth final season" purposeful? and what about the trailer makers for community?



anyways i hope there's a lot of future fringe in fringe's future as i was kinda disappointed with what turned out to be just a tease.

Does anyone think they'll end the show by wiping out the possibility of the Observers, therefore September would never be there in 1985 to distract Walter from finding the cure? So everything basically gets reset...again?



I'm not sure whether or not I'd hate this or love it.



But, AWESOME Trailer!!

I'm only just up to season 4, so won't watch it. I will resist... Hopefully I can catch up by the premiere date.

CAN'T WAIT!! It will be a sad day when there's no longer Fringe to look forward to on our screens. This is TV at its best.

I think this is a really good role for Henry Ian Cusick, then again anything where he gets to be a badass and save people is a good role for him. The introduction of Peter & Olivia's daughter will be interesting as well, shake things up a bit (more). I as well can't wait for the season premiere! The "showdown" between the Observers and the Fringe Team looks like it will be epic on so many levels. I really like the idea of Olivia, Peter, and Walter creating Fringe Events to distract the Observers, that sounds like something Walter has been waiting for his entire life, I mean to have a legit reason for doing it aside from "for the heck of it." Can it be that the FBI would condone Fringe Events to stop the Observers from taking over the world? Time Will Tell...

My wife and I love this show. We can't wait till it comes on in September. This season looks like the best ever. Fringe will sure be missed after this season. Wish the entire cast much success in the future. They have been superb.

I'm still adjusting to this idea. I hope they don't flop it.

I hope the finale will be a long 2 and a half hour episode. That would be FANTASTIC!!

Letters of Transit rewatch time!

There is new footage in the trailer. It includes a scene in which Walter (possibly pre-2036) said he knew how to get rid of observers.

Eh ! Is that Olivia in amber, at 1:26 ? If she was there, why didn't they release her first ? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to have Peter and Astrid, but Olive is a bigger asset, even without powers, than any of both, don't you think ? Was she ambered somewhere else ? Anyway, I'm so happy she isn't dead in 2036 !!!

She wasn't in the same area that the others were Ambered in. If she was placed in Amber, it was somewhere else entirely, and they'll have to go and retrieve her.

New footage or not, every minute of Fringe is appreciated.

When the show ends I will be fighting back tears.

This is AWESOME. I'm extremely excited to see (hopefully) how the present Fringe team ends up in amber, where Olivia was in "Letters to Transit," and William Bell blowing up cars! Fox always makes the best seasonal promos, but I'm literally screaming with excitement for Fringe's final season. I expect nothing but the best from my favorite scifi show!

The scene where Bell blows up cars was the season 2 finale.

I'm... ashajwheagweauyw!! This is just awesome. I'm so glad that Fringe is gonna get the proper ending it deserves, and I'm sure it's going to be epic. This show has blown my mind over and over again and I know I won't be disappointed. Ooohhh September 28th can't arrive soon enough!!

Well, after "Letters of Transit", I was expecting pretty much something like that for the next season. But I'm gladly surprised Olivia appears as well. I thought she would be missing this season and Etta would be her replacement as main female figure. Oh, and there's also a scene with William Bell. I'm very happy Nimoy decided to "unretire" temporarily to do the final season of Fringe. Probably he'll go back to full retirement after that.

This is the final season. They would never remove Olivia from it without a proper goodbye.

"I think it's time we caused a few Fringe events of our own."



It may be the last season but we are holding on to this show and we will love it forever.

I think there was some new footage in there, only brief glimpses but some it didn't look familiar.

Am I the only one who find a war against evil Observers a bit simplistic? Good Vs evil? Will there be any complexity at all this season? Of course the horrible finale where Walter kills Olivia, and simply revives her AND ostensibly rendering her normal in the process, already proved that Fringe now has its pig-laced brain cake and eats it as well.

I wouldn't exactly call these new Observers evil, anymore than I'd call historical colonizers evil. They just see us as inferior thanks to their technology and really, isn't this sort of struggle grounded in humanity? And if the future of the human race is to become the Observers, are we waging war against the inevitable?

It seems there will be a simple us vs them anyway doesn't it. The beauty of the two universes was that it was not like that, and that simply everyone have their own reasons for doing things. Alt -Olivia wasn't "bad" and the way the two universes had to finally trust each other was quite poignant. The story of the Observers seems just like a ruthless enemy, like in Independence day or something.

If fans were able to save Chuck, we should be able to get a full last season for Fringe. Come on! just thirteen episodes? what's a few 15 episodes more.

Yep, definitely some new footage, like Olivia talking about Etta and Bell shooting that car.



So excited, but it sucks that it starts in late September.

I can't wait for this show to return. It will be so sad seeing it end, but it will be one hell of a journey to that end based on the past 4 seasons and "Letters of Tranit."

There IS some new footage in this clip, actually. You don't really see it until you get to the middle of the trailer. I won't say what for anyone who is watching this for the first time...
