FOX RENEWS "FRINGE" FOR A THIRD SEASON OF ENDLESS IMPOSSIBILITIES

FOX has renewed FRINGE, the critically acclaimed thrilling drama, for a third season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company.

"FRINGE tapped into a deep creative mine this year that built momentum throughout the season and helped give us our first real foothold on TV's most competitive night," said Reilly. "The entire FRINGE team - from the producers and writers to the cast and crew - has taken smart storytelling and top production quality to a whole new level. The rest of this season is mind-blowing, and we can't wait to get started on the third installment of this amazing journey."

This season, FRINGE improved FOX's performance in the time period (Thursdays, 9:00-10:00 PM) by 11% among Adults 18-49 and by 33% in Total Viewers. In fact, together with its BONES lead-in, FRINGE helped boost FOX's Thursday average rating during the fall among Adults 18-49 by 52%.

"We could not be more excited to continue the wild ride of FRINGE. We are grateful to FOX, and our viewers, for allowing this fun, mind-bending adventure to go on," said FRINGE co-creator and executive producer J.J. Abrams.

Series showrunners and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman added, "This early renewal comes at a great time and adds to the cast and crew's energy and excitement as we head into production on this season's revealing final two episodes. We have so many stories to tell, so this is awesome that we have another season to explore the worlds of FRINGE."

The second season of FRINGE resumes with eight all-new and uninterrupted episodes beginning Thursday, April 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
