Fringe is an American science fiction television series created by J. J. AbramsAlex Kurtzman, andRoberto Orci. It premiered on the Fox Broadcasting network on September 9, 2008, and concluded on January 18, 2013, after five seasons and 100 episodes. The series follows Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), and Walter Bishop (John Noble), members of a Federal Bureau of Investigation “Fringe Division” team based in BostonMassachusetts, under the supervision of Homeland Security. The team uses “fringe” science and FBI investigative techniques to investigate a series of unexplained, often ghastly occurrences, which are related to mysteries surrounding a parallel universe. The series has been described as a hybrid of The X-FilesAltered States, and The Twilight Zone.

The series format combines elements from procedural dramas as well as those found in serials. The series began as a more traditional “mystery of the week” series, and became more serialized in later seasons. A majority of episodes contain a standalone plot, with several episodes also exploring the series’ overarching mythology.

Early critical reception of the first season was lukewarm but became more favorable in subsequent seasons, when the series began to explore its mythology, including parallel universes and alternate timelines. The show, as well as the cast and crew, has been nominated for many major awards. Despite its move to the “Friday night death slot” and low ratings, the series has received a cult following. It has also spawned two six-part comic book series and an alternate reality game.
