After a protracted war and an awkward peace with the alternate universe, the true villains of "Fringe" stand revealed as the evolved future humans known as the Observers.
For years, the Observers seemed content simply to watch as Fringe events overtook our world and the alternate universe. But having ruined their own future, the Observers have come back in time to seize our world as their own.
As introduced in last season's “Letters of Transit,” the fifth season of "Fringe" will take place in 2036 as Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) and Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) adjust to being awakened after 20 years of amber slumber as they attempt to fight off the Observers and reclaim the Earth for humanity. The reunited Fringe team is joined by Etta (Georgina Haig), the grown daughter of Peter and his missing wife, Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv).
With a run of new episodes kicking off this Friday, Fox has released an extended trailer for the fifth season of "Fringe" in which we see just how difficult it will be to defeat the Observers. Walter has a plan, but the Observers have him… and we finally get a glimpse of where Olivia has been for the past two decades…
Don't miss the fifth and final season of "Fringe," this Friday, September 28 on Fox!
