Fox Renews Fringe For A Fourth Season

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of Fringe fans collectively breathing a sigh of relief. After weeks of uncertainty, and a move to the Friday "death" slot on Fox, the sci-fi show has finally been renewed.

The news emerged on Twitter today when executive producer Joel Wyman wrote: “Fringe was picked up!!!! Thanks Fringedom!” Fox later confirmed this, adding the fourth season pick-up is for a full 22-episode order.

The new slot hasn’t been too unkind to Fringe. Despite last week’s episode hitting a season low--believed to be down to a schedule clash with March Madness--it remains Fox’s best-performing Friday show in years. Whether it will remain in that slot next season is not yet known.

How will you be celebrating the news?

Fringe’s second season continues in the UK on Sky1 next Wednesday at 10pm.

Good news all round ... I thought the show was dragging on with Season 3 being grand finale. I'm glad I'm disappointed.

Will be making baconberry frosting on Saturday watching some season 2 and the re-run of Bloodline. This is great news but there is no time to be idle.
Get your friends to watch and catch up during the summer. Keep watching with those Fringe eyes and make it worth the renewal. Fringe rules!
