The season 5 (and series) finale of Fringe will air soon on Fox, and now you can read a detailed press release for the two-part episode!

Fox has released the following press statement for the upcoming finale of Fringe, which will conclude with a two-parter airing January 18, 2013:

THE FIFTH AND FINAL SEASON OF “FRINGE” CONCLUDES WITH A TWO-HOUR SERIES FINALE, INCLUDING THE 100TH EPISODE, FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, ON FOX

Climactic Nine-Episode Countdown Continues with an All-New Episode Tonight

As the Fringe team fights for humanity’s future in the fifth and final season, the imaginative journey toward the end of the acclaimed series will culminate in a climactic conclusion during the two-hour final-two-episodes event Friday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This milestone date will also celebrate the series’ 100th episode.

Series Co-Creator and Executive Producer J.J. Abrams reflected on the show’s run: “It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of FRINGE. I will always owe the cast and crew for pouring their hearts and souls into every dimension of this series. Creating the show with Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman was a joy, but watching it evolve over the years into such an imaginative, insane and heartbreaking ride is nothing less than a thrill. I am grateful to our blessed fans, and to Kevin Reilly and Peter Rice and everyone at the glorious Fox network for allowing FRINGE to reach its bittersweet conclusion.”

Executive producer and showrunner J. H. Wyman said, “Above all else, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to personally thank everyone involved with FRINGE. From the most amazing fans, to our incredible cast, writers and crew, and our wonderful partners at FOX and Warner Bros. – we would not be here without you. It simply cannot be overstated how grateful I am for the ongoing and unconditional support we have received over the past five seasons. It has been both mind-blowing and humbling. I’ve always been a fan of science fiction, and to be able to tell this story about a family – a family that, through everything, fought together for survival – has been a highlight of my career. As we approach the final chapter, I can hardly believe it, and I’m just truly thankful for this unparalleled experience.”

“FRINGE has truly imagined the impossibilities over its five seasons and will go down in the books as one of FOX’s most riveting and creatively brilliant series,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It has been a blast to work with J.J., Joel and their masterful creative teams, as well as with Anna, Josh and John and the rest of the most talented cast and crew in the business.”

Throughout FRINGE’s thrilling five seasons, the series has followed Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv), enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist WALTER BISHOP (John Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, PETER (Joshua Jackson) as the Fringe team explored mysterious occurrences linked between parallel universes, doppelgängers, Observers and unimaginable threats. The unlikely trio supervised by Special Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and assisted by ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole) – often led them to science and technological corporation Massive Dynamic, founded by WILLIAM BELL (guest star Leonard Nimoy), and its enigmatic chief executive, NINA SHARP (Blair Brown).

The fifth and final flash-forward season of FRINGE is set in 2036, when the “Observers” have become ruthless rulers of a dystopian society. As the battle for the world’s future continues to unfold, the Fringe team is in the midst of making its final stand to save humanity. In the aftermath of the devastating loss of Peter and Olivia’s daughter, ETTA (guest star Georgina Haig), the intensity escalates as the combat continues and Peter makes a pivotal and game-changing move in the all-new “An Origin Story” episode airing tonight (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

After the death of Etta, the Fringe team will be struggling to keep going, but with only eight episode left, it’s probably about time they start picking up the pace.

Fringe 5×05 “An Origin Story” airs tonight!

Warm up those microscopes — Bill Nye is coming back to television thanks to Netflix!

Netflix has announced Bill Nye Saves the World, a new talk show slated for Spring 2017.

In a statement, Netflix says “each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.”

“Since the start of the Science Guy show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science,” said Bill Nye in a press release.

“Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little.”

Netflix also promises that “In Bill’s unfiltered style, he will bring in special guests, conduct experiments and demonstrations, and ultimately let the facts lead the argument.”

Bill Nye is best known for Bill Nye the Science Guy, the half-hour PBS show that ran from 1993 through 1998.

The theme song is iconic. Science RULES!

The new Netflix series seems like a continuation of Bill Nye the Science Guy, so we’re very excited for the new show to launch in 2017.

The first Sherlock series 4 trailer premiered last month at San Diego Comic-Con, where Cumberbatch teased that “a lot comes home to roost this season… it’s ballsy.” Indeed, the trailer suggests that the characters have a lot to be concerned about. Check it out below:

The new season of Sherlock doesn’t have a premiere date, but it’s expected to launch in late 2016 or early 2017. Perhaps today’s portrait release suggests that some more news is on the horizon!

The last season of Sherlock aired in early 2015, but the busy schedules of Cumberbatch and Freeman have left the show with production challenges.

Coming as absolutely no surprise whatsoever, Netflix is bringing Stranger Things back for a second season!

Can we get a YAAAS?

Netflix’s hugely successful ’80s horror series Stranger Things has been renewed for season 2. The news hit Wednesday morning, and fans are already losing their minds (as well they should).

Here’s Netflix’s official announcement video:

The video plays the show’s eerie theme, over what appears to be the season 2 episode titles: “MadMax,” “The Boy Who Came Back to Life,” “The Pumpkin Patch,” “The Palace,” “The Storm,” “The Pollywog,” “The Secret Cabin,” “The Brain,” and “The Lost Brother.”

Netflix has confirmed that there will be nine episodes of Stranger Things season 2. Writers/creators Matt and Ross Duffer will return, along with executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. No news of cast changes yet, although we know that four new characters will be showing up.

We’re stoked to see this awesome series return for a second season. No spoilers, but Stranger Things season 1 kind of ended on a major cliffhanger, which needs to be resolved.

While we’re glad to have official confirmation that the show is returning, there never really was a question, considering the series’ popularity. In fact, we’ve already compiled a list of 60 questions the show needs to answer.

The Duffer brothers have also been pretty candid about their future plans for the series, hinting that season 2 will pick up at least a year after the first season ended. They’re further implying that the show could continue for as many as seven seasons, to mirror Harry Potter and allow us to watch the kids grow up.

“I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade,” Ross Duffer tells EW. “That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here, there’s still things that are unresolved.”

But first, let’s wait and see if Stranger Things season 2 can maintain the momentum of season 1. As much as we love Netflix series, they’ve been kind of hit-and-miss with their second seasons.
