With no decision yet announced regarding the fate of Fringe, despite Joel Wyman’s prediction earlier this week, John Noble has confirmed that plans are in place for either contingency.
“We’ve shot two [endings],” John Noble told TVLine on April 12 pointing out, “I hear warm and fuzzy things — but I’ve been hearing them all the time. We just picked up [TV Guide Magazine's] fan award for Best Drama and so forth, and the fans have always been very supportive… [and] I know the Fox executives actually like Fringe very much. But they run a business. I think we’ll be back, but we’ll wait and see.”
Lance Reddick added, “The way [Season 4] ends could function as a series finale, but there’s one storyline left open that could end up as a cliffhanger for the beginning of the fifth season…. We’ll see what airs depending on what [Fox and WBTV] decide.”
