There might be a Fringe movie, at least if members of the cast have their way. “The film is very possible down the line,” John Noble said today at the show’s Comic-Con panel. “The show will live on in some form or another,” added fellow cast member Joshua Jackson.

That dedication was evident right near the beginning of the session as hundreds in the crowd held up print out of white tulips in tribute to the show’s 18th episode and the flower’s role as a symbol of forgiveness. Beyond the actor’s speculation and fond hopes, not a lot was revealed in where things were going in season five or down the line.

As primetime continues to lose viewers to the longer days and warmer springtime, Fox’s Fringe last night (1.1/3 in adults 18-49) went up a tenth from last week in its first airing since the sci-fi series was renewed for a 13-episode final season. It was one of only two series to post gains vs. their most recent originals last night.

After surging 33% last week, Fox’s The Finder (1.1/4) was down 8% this week as it faced all-original competition in the 8 PM hour vs. all-repeats on the major nets last week. Read More »
