Fringe Season 4: Andre Royo to Return?

One of my favorite casting bits for season 3 of Fringe  was actor Andre Royo. Royo played cabdriver Henry Arliss Higgins, who developed a special relationship with both Olivias over the course of the season. He helped Olivia plot her escape to our universe in "The Abducted," and he delivered Altlivia's baby in "Bloodline." That was Royo's most recent appearance in the series, but now sources are saying that he'll be back for the show's fourth season. Royo, who is perhaps best known for his role as Bubbles on HBO's  The Wire ,  spoke to a member of The Fringe Movement , and he revealed one very important piece of information to her: Henry will be back.

Fringe Season 4 Scoop: Who is Returning?

They won't reveal very much about season four - which premieres on September 23 - but Fringe producers Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman have given fans something interesting to ponder all summer at least. "We have some things we're very excited about," Pinkner said in a recent interview. "We're bringing back some characters who were among our favorites." It's already been confirmed that Seth Gabel is on board as a new series regular. But might the producers be referring to others, as well? Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2011/06/fringe-season-4-scoop-who-is-returning/

'Fringe' Star Anna Torv: The Series Finale 'Has Been Written'

Dying to know how 'Fringe' will end? Star Anna Torv, who plays Agent Olivia Dunham, says the writers have it all planned. In an interview with TV & Satellite Week, Torv admitted that the hit sci-fi show's last episode is already mapped out. "I've been told the ultimate final episode has been written," Torv said. "[The writers] know where they want us to go, but they don't know yet when we will get there." The executive producers of 'Fringe' have hinted at a seven-year plan for the show, but given it's eternal "on the bubble" status, it makes sense that they'd want to be prepared, just in case. But Torv said she wants to be kept in the dark, admitting she has no idea what they have in store. "Initially, I wanted to know ... now I'm happy not to. There's something great about working on a film or a play where you know where you're going, but on television it's more open and that's good, too." //www.aoltv.com/2011/06/15/fringe-star-anna-torv-series-finale-written/

'Modern Family' is the 2010-11 DVR champion; 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Fringe,' also make big gains

"Modern Family's" ratings were quite good this season just counting the people who watched it the night it aired. Among DVR users, though, no other series got a bigger boost.The ABC comedy added almost 3.5 million viewers and 1.7 ratings points among adults 18-49 per episode, according to Nielsen's live+7 rankings for the 2010-11 season. That puts it at the top of the list in both categories. (The live+7 ratings count only original episodes, not repeats or those classified as "specials" -- i.e., episodes that aired away from their usual time period.)"Hawaii Five-0" gained the second-highest number of viewers for the season, an average of 3.26 million per episode. It was also in the Top 10 in adults 18-49 gains, going from a 2.9 rating to a 4.0.The season's two most-watched shows overall, "American Idol" and "Dancing With the Stars," aren't especially great DVR performers, since their live-performance elements tend to make people want to... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/06/modern-family-is-the-2010-11-dvr-champion-hawaii-five-0-fringe-also-make-big-gains.html

Fringe: The Return of David Robert Jones?

Sometimes Peter Bishop not existing isn't such a bad thing. Take, for instance, the story possibilities that could arise now that Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) never existed. Imagine the impossibilities,  Fringe 's tagline declares. While mulling over what could happen next in the story, my thoughts stumbled upon my favorite impossibility thus far: the return of David Robert Jones. Jared Harris's villainous David Robert Jones was perhaps the highlight of the first season; this was before the really meaty main cast parts started coming along in season two. No, Jones was the perfect bad guy for the first season of the show, back when we were just starting to understand the concept of alternate universes. Unfortunately, he found himself literally trapped between the two universes in the season one finale, and was chopped in half when a certain someone forced the universe portal to suddenly close. Have a guess as to who that someone is.

Anna Torv and John Noble Discuss Fringe's Big Cliffhanger

Fringe 's third season finale left us with quite the cliffhanger. September (Michael Ceveris) and December, two Observers, were commenting to each other on the fact that since Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) had fulfilled his purpose, "he never existed." While fans are still trying to piece together what exactly that meant, Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham) told  Give Me My Remote  that she thinks Peter still exists within the storyline of the show. "I think he's still in existence. I think that we just don't remember him," she shared. "[Peter could be] be walking around, knowing everything, but with nobody knowing. It'd be like being invisible, almost." "He'll be back in a different form," co-star John Noble, who plays Peter's father Walter, added. "But I don't know any more than that." Torv clarified that she'd not spoken to the showrunners since the third season wrapped. "I was just about to ask [them about the cliffhanger]," she said.

Why I Trust the Writers of Fringe More Than Any Other Writers on Television

When it comes to picking television shows, you need to choose carefully. You need to pick a show you can get behind, one that you can rely on. It's like choosing a girlfriend, albeit one you only see for an hour a week. It has to be a show you can stand proudly behind, saying "That's my show!" when it wins awards or gets a smattering of critical adoration. It needs to be a show you can tell your friends about, one that you can bring home to your parents. For me,  Fringe  is that show. And it all goes back to the writing staff of the show, headed up by the wonderful Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman. I trust them more than I trust any other writing staff on television, bar none. That's a pretty big claim, and one I don't make lightly. What does it take for a TV writing staff to gain my trust? The answer is both simple and complex: the show needs to be something I can rely on. It needs to be a show that's consistently amazing, week after week, while at the same time it needs to be something that commitment to pays off. A show can have consistently good episodes without really going anywhere in terms of overall plot, and conversely can have consistently mediocre episodes that advance the plot light years every week. Oh yeah, and you can't just make up the plot as they go along ( LOST , as wonderful and dear as that show is to me, meets the other two criteria but falls a bit short on this last one).

More Lincoln Lee? Yes, Please: FRINGE Makes Seth Gabel a Series Regular

With all the bad news that FOX dumped last night (yes, there was some good news, too, but wow), leave it to  FRINGE  to make me smile. Seth Gabel, who has recurred as the awesome Lincoln Lee for two seasons, is being promoted to series regular for season 4. We’ve mostly seen the alt-universe version of Lincoln Lee, and now with Peter’s shiny new "Bridge" from the season finale, there is ample reason to see even more of that Lincoln. I hope we get to see more of our world’s Lincoln, whom we met in "Stowaway," too, though. Basically, more Seth Gabel on Fringe  is a very good thing all around.
