Print this article The science fiction series "Fringe" has become somewhat of a cult hit over the last several years, and its fans recently received a bit of good and bad news. Fox announced it will pick up the series for a fifth, but final season, according to Vulture.
The show's future had largely been in doubt throughout its fourth season. Although it debuted to considerable ratings, its viewership decreased over the years and only attracted about 3 million viewers throughout its latest season when it ran on Friday nights.
Despite the low ratings, experts are quick to point out that Fringe is one of the most time-shifted series on television. According to Vulture, if one includes DVR viewers, the show's audience increases by an impressive 60 percent.
There's no word yet on when the fifth season will premiere, but it will consist of 13 episodes, giving the series a final total of 100. Anybody who is a fan of "Fringe" may want to check out similar series including the long running favorite "The X-Files" and the short lived "FlashForward."
