Fringe (And Peter Bishop) At SDCC


Above is the Fringe panel from last week’s San Diego Comic Com. The clip below was also released:

Joel Wyman has revealed on Twitter that the title for the first episode of season four of Fringe will be A Sort of Homecoming. I wonder if that refers to Peter in the teaser clip above.

Jeff Pinker and Joel Wyman also discussed Peter’s fate in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

Joshua Jackson joked to THR that he would like his alter ego to return to the cult sci-fi drama in a “flash of light,” when the time came. Wyman, however, wasn’t as giving. “You know, that is an assumption,” he replied when asked about how Peter would return to the series. “He will not be another identity.”

“For us, we are really using Peter’s story this season to explore a lot of the basic rules of the show, which are choices and connection,” Pinkner added.

But Wyman and Pinkner were adamant in dispelling any theories that questioned whether the events in the season finale actually happened.

“It really happened,” Wyman reassured. “What we are trying to do from a conceptual standpoint is have the audience understand that it happened and you know it did happen. We watched it and there has been a catastrophe and it needs to be righted. It will either right itself properly or it will go in a very negative way. Now you have to understand what those repercussions are going to mean.”

He added, “Peter sacrificed himself. He was a selfless hero. There are sacrifices; a sacrifice wouldn’t be hard if it was easy.”

Before they decided to go ahead with the finale, there were discussions about the events that unfolded that would affect the trajectory of the series.

“Before we decided to actually pull the trigger and do that season finale, we convinced ourselves that it happened and we were willing to play with consequences,” Pinkner said. “I think it ends up in a place that is really kind of beautiful.”


There was also a second teaser released. Plus below is an interview with Anna Torv:
