‘Fringe’ exec talks season 5, Emmy snub at Fox TCA event

After spending the past few seasons running “Fringe” alongside Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman is now taking on sole duties steering the ship for its final season — and with that, he has he difficult responsibility of trying to find a way to end this show in a way that all of the fans appreciate.

While trying to get specifics about season 5 is very much akin to pulling teeth, Wyman did suggest at Fox’s TCA event that we would get the opportunity to see some semblance of hope for Peter, Olivia, and the rest o the characters moving forward beyond what happens in the future:

“Some things may be unexpected, some things may be expected. But I want to feel like what they got was earned … I want to be able to feel like there’s a sense of closure…and a feeling of hopefulness.”

Wyman also had one other subject on his mind while speaking in front of reporters — the continued lack of interest the Emmys seem to have in his show despite some high-quality episodes and a performance from John Noble that really should have found a way to score a Best Supporting Actor nomination. He said that he “couldn’t comprehend” why the Emmys did not want to look in his direction for a nomination or two, but tried to downplay the idea that the awards show simply hates everything within the science fiction genre:

“If it’s an issue because this is a science fiction show, I really don’t know. I’m trying to believe the cream will always rise to the top. I have to believe that.”

Thankfully, “Fringe” still has one final opportunity to break through next year — let’s just hope that the show ends on a strong enough note that it is next to impossible to ignore.
