FOX was kind enough to give Fringe a renewal for a final 13 episode season. I’m not sure if JJ Abrams had to pay someone off to get that, but if he did, I appreciate it. I still have a couple episodes to catch up on before the final 3 of this season come out, but I’m very relieved to know that the writers (producers, actors, etc.) will be able to finish out the show in (what I imagine is) the way they want it to end. Much better than Firefly, which had to cram in 2 hours what was probably 3-4 seasons worth of material (or in Joss Whedon’s case maybe 8-9 more seasons).
