      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A daring reset may baffle casual viewers, but those already enthralled by Fringe's knotty mythology will likely become even more invested.

      Previous Tiffany Wendeln Connors New York Post Could've served as a tidy series ender... Jun 26, 2018 Full Review Phelim O'Neill Guardian It can be followed, though. You just need to not mind being confused until you find your bearings. And surely it's always better to be confused than bored. Jun 26, 2018 Full Review Sam Adams indieWire The show's creators have been bolder about playing to the crowd, letting new arrivals find their own way in rather than constantly starting from scratch. It may have cost them some casual viewers, but the show encourages obsession, and rewards it as well. Jun 26, 2018 Full Review Anthony Ocasio Screen Rant With great performances form everyone in the series, but most notably Leonard Nimoy, there really isn't much more that you could ask for. Jun 26, 2018 Full Review Fay Brennan What Culture We are back where we started and things aren€™'t quite different enough... But as an avid fan I have faith, so I€'™ll pass it off as unavoidable part of establishing the new timeline. 3/5 Jun 26, 2018 Full Review Jessica Johnson Time Out Chicago How Fringe attempts to rewrite the history of its characters with a major influence in their lives missing is one of the many things that makes the new season incredibly exciting.

      Previous David W Superb. One of my all time favourite sci-fi series reinvents itself with a who new storyline. It resets the characters and lore beautifully and continues to have suspense, humour, wit and invention in spades but now in a darker setting. The acting is superb from the main cast who have wonderful chemistry. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/28/23 Full Review Toms c Great quality throughout. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I can't believe that I'm starting to see fringe as surpassing the x files, it's been thought out and executed just beautifully. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review robert p Another great season for Fringe!!!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A great sci fi ride. Great performances! I was totally intrigued. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the very best and most intelligent TV shows ever created period! Just finished watching the bluerays of the whole series for the second time since watching the broadcast of the show when it first aired! It just gets more enjoyable to watch each time! Wish there were some new shows of this caliber! Some others like Stranger Things are very good however don't quite measure up to Fringe! The story arc and resets mean you need to watch this from the beginning and stick with it, it takes some time to get comfortable with the underlying story arc and characters but it is so worth it!
