‘Fringe’ cast bids tearful goodbye to Comic-Con
SAN DIEGO (AP) - There were no doppelgangers at the final panel for "Fringe" at Comic-Con, but there were plenty of tears.
"Fringe" stars Jasika Nicole, Anna Torv and Lance Reddick cried while reminiscing about their favorite scenes at the pop-culture convention Sunday.
"You can't go out and tell anybody this happened," joked a weepy Reddick after recalling a few heartfelt scenes with Nicole's character, Astrid, and her double.
"Fringe" actors Joshua Jackson and John Noble were also on hand for the panel, which kicked off with a trailer for the final installment that was filmed last season and served as a sales pitch to garner the ratings-challenged series a final bow.
"This was a testament to how much everybody loves the show," said executive producer J.H. Wyman.
The new season will jump ahead to the year 2036 when the mysterious, pale Observers have taken over the world.
After a group of female fans asked why there were no lady Observers, Wyman told the crowd that the reason would "become apparent this year." He also said he let the actors in on how the show would wrap up, a departure from past seasons when the cast was left in the dark.
"Just as much as you want the show to end well, we want the show to end well," said Jackson.
The fifth and final season of "Fringe" debuts Sept. 28.
