Joshua Jackson says that the upcoming fifth season of Fringe will be a “big family reunion.”
Speaking to TV Guide, Jackson teased a few details of the upcoming final season for the show.
“It’s going to be a big family reunion. It takes on a slightly different flavor than I think you would anticipate. It happens quite quickly off the top of the season and it’s as emotional as you would imagine, but not quite the reunion that you’re expecting,” he says.
Producer J.P. Wyman added that the series won’t overlook the details leading up to the reunion.
“What happened? How did they get in amber? The day the Observers arrived, what did it look like? How did Olivia and Peter and everyone get separated? Why were they all together? Why was Bell there? The history will surprise you when you realize there’s a lot of emotions going on for reasons that you don’t know yet, but you will,” he says. “I want to feel that my questions are answered, but I feel like the characters that I love meet an end that they deserve that makes me feel good and makes me feel like, ‘Wow, I’ve really been through something and now I understand what it was all about. On the other side of it, it also makes me want to feel like the next day when I get into my car, I want to feel like I can still imagine what they’re doing. I can imagine there’s a future and they are somewhere. That was my biggest thing.”
