The Observers Are Coming In New Fringe Season 5 Teaser
Sometimes the simplest of teases can go a long way, and few series have mastered the simple tease as Fringe. When you have a show that is as dense as Fringe, showing too much in a promo can ruin what’s planned for the season, in which case past footage is relied on, mixed together in such a way as to take our minds in a specific direction. In the case of the new teaser for Fringe’s fifth and final season, we get new footage in the form of a bunch of Observers marching ominously toward the screen while voice over from various episodes is played over top. And it all points to one conclusion: Season 5 is going to be a war of epic proportions.
The audio clips used all share the same topic: the Observers. They give a brief history and explanation of what they are – humans from the future who have ruined their world and traveled back in time to take over ours. It’s short and to the point. Season 5 will be taking us into the future, to the point where the Observers have taken over our planet and a small resistance – lead by the Fringe team – is fighting back. It will be a totally different kind of Fringe.
The first episode of Season 5 will be called “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11.” What a mouthful. I have no idea what it means and I really don’t care. As long as Fringe is emotionally satisfying and appropriately epic, they can name their episodes after flowers for all I care. I’m sure though, based on the huge departure Fringe will be taking by going to the future, some fans will be put off by the show. For me though, Fringe will be Fringe no matter what time the show takes place in. If anything, the time jump just solidifies it as a science fiction classic in my mind.
