FRINGE
















Heading into its mind-bending third season, the critically acclaimed FRINGE will continue to explore new cases with endless impossibilities.

Set in Boston, the FBI’s Fringe Division began when 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), to help in the investigation of an airline disaster that defied human logic. After the defining case was solved and revealed to be one of a series of unusual incidents linked together, the unlikely trio supervised by Special Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Junior Agent ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole) was formed.

As unimaginable events continued to unfold over the first two seasons, the Fringe Division’s investigations often led them to the multifaceted biomedical science, energy and technology corporation Massive Dynamic and its enigmatic chief executive NINA SHARP (Blair Brown). When Olivia discovered that she was a test subject as a child of Walter Bishop and Massive Dynamic’s elusive founder and chairman WILLIAM BELL (guest star Leonard Nimoy), it triggered a search for details about her forgotten and perplexing past. Her findings uncovered the existence of a parallel universe where Bell ominously warned of a threat that would change our world forever. She also recovered her childhood ability to detect objects from this parallel universe, which shockingly led her to learn that Peter is from the “other side.” As a result, Walter revealed that he kidnapped Peter as a child from the parallel universe 25 years ago. Evident by the omnipresence of the “Observers,” there is more than one of everything in the worlds of FRINGE.

At the end of the second season, a distraught Peter returns to his otherworldly origins, and the team travels to the alternate universe to locate him. The finale features the highly anticipated face-off between former pioneering lab partners Walter Bishop and William Bell, and when sacrifices are made, both universes may never be the same again.

In Season Three, additional details of the alternate universe will continue to emerge as the FRINGE team investigates otherworldly characters and forces.

Created by J.J. Abrams & Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci, FRINGE, is produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams, Bryan Burk, J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner serve as executive producers, while Kurtzman, Orci and Akiva Goldsman are consulting producers. Additionally, Pinkner and Wyman serve as the series’ showrunners.
