‘Fringe’ season 5 spoilers: Seth Gabel out as series regular

Changes are coming.

This seems to be the day of cast members departing. Only mere minutes after reporting that “Smash” is going to be losing two series regulars for its second season, we now have some similar news when it comes to the fifth and final season of “Fringe.”

According to some new reports, Seth Gabel is not going to be back as a series regular for the final collection of episodes. This news was for many a foregone conclusion, mostly because the bridge between the two universes seemed to be shutting down at the end of season 4.

As for what the subject matter of season 5 will revolve around, expect a story themed very much around what we saw in the “Letters of Transit” episode — and if you go back and watch it again now, there are even more clues that should be apparent (especially when it comes to what Peter and Olivia are going to be facing).

What’s your reaction to this news, or did you already see it coming?
