SAN DIEGO – The final Comic-Con panel for FOX’s “Fringe” was emotional for the entire cast, with tears coming easily for stars Anna Torv, Jasika Nicole and even Lance Reddick.
In the press room after the panel, Torv was quick to jokingly blame Nicole for her lachrymosity in front of a crowd of 6000 fans.
We also discussed the biggest news to come out of the Comic-Con panel, which was that the fifth and concluding season of “Fringe” will be largely — never say “entirely” went it comes to time, space or dimensions on “Fringe” — set in the 2036 future established in the “Letters of Transit” episode from last spring.
That just happens to have been an episode that didn’t include Torv. In our conversation, Torv discusses going out of her way to meet her on-screen future-daughter and what she expects the future is going to mean for Olivia.
Stay tuned in the days to come for my “Fringe” Comic-Con interviews with Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick and showrunner J.H. Wyman (somehow I missed Jasika in the press room tumult).
“Fringe” returns to FOX on Friday, September 28.
