Fringe has been one of the shows "on the bubble" this season - critics pegged it as a show that was in danger of not being renewed. It has a loyal fan base, and was Fox's highest-rated scripted show in its first season. A second-season order was fast in the making, and a season three order was a no-brainer. But then things got a little murky. The ratings became shaky, and Fox moved it to Friday - which didn't help. Check out the full good news after the jump - there is more than just a fourth-season order.
Fringe will be back for a fourth season. A FULL fourth season. Not a 12-episode, let's-see-how-it-goes order. A full season. The ratings still suck for the live episodes, but it is a big winner with the DVR crowd, and the execs at Fox have really put their support behind it to make it the next X-Files. Frankly, I think I like it better than X-Files. What do you think?
