The fifth and final season of Fringe will be Lincoln-lite, according to sources.
Per TV Line, Seth Gabel will not return as a series regular in the fifth season of Fringe. This always seemed on the cards the moment the Bridge was closed with Lincoln opting to stay in the alt-universe with Altlivia and her peacoat.
Sources don’t rule out Gabel returning for an episode or two next season.
