According to the latest rumors, Fringe Season 5 renewal odds have strengthened this week.
Our partner site Seriable has the latest (via EW):
According to Entertainment Weekly, Fringe was “doomed” until this week. That was before the 2-hour Alcatraz finale dipped to season-low ratings (1.6/1.5):
“We’ve been hearing Fringe was doomed — until this week. There’s renewed hope for a 13-episode “final season” pickup thanks to the modest performance of Alcatraz.”
In addition, this week’s Fringe ratings uptick (from a series low 0.9 to a 1.2, matching Friday rival Grimm in the key 18-49 demo), can’t hurt the cause. Word is the show’s renewal chances have flipped now from ‘negative to positive’ [..].
Note: Nothing is guaranteed at this stage. Consider this a rumor update.
