FOX explores more 'Fringe' science
FOX stole some of NBC's Infronts thunder on Monday (May 4) by announcing the renewal of one of its key bubble shows.
"Fringe," which stands as the season's top-rated new show in the key 18-49 demographic (thanks in no small part to "House" and "American Idol," its two lead-ins), has been picked up for a second season.
"'Fringe' proved to be a notable addition to our schedule all season and it really has fans buzzing as it builds to a fantastic season finale," says FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly. "J.J. and the whole Bad Robot team have been phenomenal partners, and we look forward to years of making great television with them."
Reilly is referring, of course, to J.J. Abrams, who created "Fringe" with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
"'Fringe' continues to gain momentum, creatively and with viewers,” Abrams adds. "We couldn’t be more thrilled that 'Fringe' will continue to freak people out for at least another season!"
"Fringe," which stars stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Kirk Acevedo, Blair Brown and Jasika Nicole, has two more episodes remaining this season, as the show digs deeper in the Z.F.T. Manifesto and the dark secrets of William Bell and Massive Dynamic.
