As the “Fringe” team fights for humanity’s future in the fifth and final season, the imaginative journey toward the end of the acclaimed series will culminate in a climactic conclusion during the two-hour final-two-episodes event Friday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This milestone date will also celebrate the series’ 100th episode.
Throughout “Fringe”’s thrilling five seasons, the series has followed 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) as the “Fringe” team explored mysterious occurrences linked between parallel universes, doppelgängers, Observers and unimaginable threats. The unlikely trio supervised by Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) – often led them to science and technological corporation Massive Dynamic, founded by William Bell (guest star Leonard Nimoy), and its enigmatic chief executive, Nina Sharp (Blair Brown).
TV Line got their hands on the poster for the 2 Hour event. It’s broken into 2 episodes. In “Liberty”, which airs this Friday at 8/7c, “the Fringe team engages a desperate plan as Olivia embarks on a dangerous and otherworldly journey into the unknown.” Then in “An Enemy of Fate” the team must “face off against the Observers in one final and extraordinary battle for the fate of mankind.”
