Reaching 100 episodes is a big deal for an American TV series, as it means the show can enter the coveted syndication cycle.

It usually happens at some point in a show’s fifth series, and so Fringe was lucky to just about make it! For the celebration, they not only had an awesome cake but they also brought together most of the cast and crew, including showrunner Joel Wyman and main stars Joshua Jackson (with girlfriend Diane Kruger), Anna Torv, John Noble, Jasika Nicole and Blair Brown.

We were also happy to see former co-star Seth Gabel (Lincoln) in attendance, along with creator JJ Abrams and former showrunner Jeff Pinkner!

Other notable persons included co-creators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, executive producer Bryan Burk, co-executive producers Kathy Lingg and Reid Shane, Fox Chief Operating Officer Joe Earley, and Warner Bros. Television president Peter Roth.

The show returns next Friday with the eighth episode of season 5, titled “The Human Kind.” The final season only has 13 episodes, and the finale will air on January 18, 2013.
