J.J. Abrams Ponders End Date for Fringe - Featured

At this week's Television Critics Association winter press tour, J.J. Abrams had both good news and bad news (for some) surrounding Fringe.

First, he talked as though the series is most definitely returning for a third season, an announcement Fox has yet to officially make, yet a no-brainer for fans of what's become an engrossing drama.

But Abrams also hinted at a possible end date for Fringe, as he's witnessed the creative resurgence such a decision allowed for on his best-known creation, Lost.

"Just as with Lost, we didn't get to a place until the third season where we were saying, 'OK, we need to know where halfway is,'" Abrams said. "If we're lucky enough to continue going, I do think that at a certain point it would be a really smart thing to start to say, 'OK, let's figure out ... what the actual date is so we sort of know... how far we should push things.'"

I actually would really support a decision like that I really like Fringe but having an over reaching plan for a show is important and I think that death clauses help avoid the jumping the shark horror and slow agonizing deaths as stories get drawn out and character development stagnates and we lose what drew us to a show to start with
