Fantastic news for Fringephiles – FOX has renewed the beloved sci-fi drama for a final season of 13 episodes, despite its disappointing ratings. This means the series will hit the magic 100 episode mark just before it airs its fifth season finale, which guarantees that it will be shown in syndication.

Fringe fans everywhere will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the show will be allowed to reach a dramatic conclusion, rather than leaving everyone hanging at the end of the climactic plot of Season Four. The renewal decision was delayed for so long that the show actually shot two final episodes for this season; ‘Brave New World, Part 1 of 2’ which will air on May 4; and a different episode in case the season finale turned out to be the last episode of the entire series. (Maybe some day we might see that one as a DVD extra.)

Check out the fifth season teaser trailer below, and don’t miss the final two episodes of the fourth season of Fringe this and next Friday at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX.
