Fox has decided to give fans a second season of J.J. Abrams’ “Fringe” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The freshman series was given a full-season, 22-episode pick-up today.
“‘Fringe’ proved to be a notable addition to our schedule all season, and it really has fans buzzing as it builds to a fantastic season finale,” said Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox. “J.J. and the whole Bad Robot team have been phenomenal partners, and we look forward to years of making great television with them.”
“‘Fringe’ continues to gain momentum, creatively and with viewers. We couldn’t be more thrilled that ‘Fringe’ will continue to freak people out for at least another season!” added creator and producer Abrams.
With the renewal, fans can expect to see actor Leonard Nimoy at least two more times as the founder of Massive Dynamic, William Bell.
