A series finale is like a laboratory-conceived psychotic porcupine monster: It has a very long tail, and it will make you cry. Nearly five months after Fringe said goodbye by sending Walter Bishop (John Noble) into the far future to save Peter (Joshua Jackson), Olivia (Anna Torv) and the rest of humanity (thanks!) by changing history, the cult classic squirrels back into our field of vision one more time to drop its last DVD and take a bow.

Good news for all Observers! Starting next week, Science Channel will air three full hours of Fringe every Tuesday night. These nights of reruns will begin with a special message from John Noble, who plays brilliant mad scientist Walter Bishop; by 2013, the network will have re-aired the sci-fi series in its entirety.
The great Fringe rewatch begins Nov. 20 at 8 p.m., when the series’ two-hour pilot and first regular episode will play. Science will then air Fringe‘s full first season during daylong marathons on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24. Season 2 starts airing the following week. Even those with piles of Fringe DVDs may want to tune in: the Fringeblock’s commercial breaks will feature episodes of “Science of Fringe,” a short-form series in which real scientists will examine “phenomena such as time travel, dream sharing and parallel universes,” according to a release.

John Noble has confronted and conquered an array of daunting acting challenges playing Fringe’s brain scrambled boundary-pushing physicist Walter Bishop. But when the star found himself literally brain scrambled as a result of an ongoing sleep disorder while shooting the first episode of the Fox drama’s fifth and final season, Noble had to ask for a time out.
“I couldn’t even think, mate,” the Australian actor tells EW. “I was working and going: ‘This is really hard.’” Which is saying a lot for a heady sci-fi series that routinely challenges its cast and audience with such noodle-cooking concepts as time travel, parallel worlds, and alternate timelines. With the blessing of producers and backers, Noble took 10 days off to seek treatment in Los Angeles. He’s now back at work in Vancouver, shooting the second episode of the season, which will launch as scheduled on September 28. “People were so bloody supportive, it was really touching,” says Noble. “I’m feeling more well rested now and sleeping better than I have in 20 years.” READ FULL STORY »
Production on the fifth and final season of Fringe has been delayed as star John Noble receives medical treatment. The actor, who was absent from the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association Press Tour earlier this week, is being treated for an unspecified sleeping disorder.
Production is expected to resume on Aug. 7, and the delay will reportedly not affect the show’s premiere date.
