"Fringe" has taken so many twists and turns over four years, it's anybody's guess how the series will end for good this season. One thing's for sure: we'll glimpse more of the future.
"Last season, we got a taste of what to expect," "Fringe" star Anna Torv told CNN Geek Out. "2036, here we come!"
We briefly met Peter and Olivia's grown-up child in 2036. What did Aussie Torv think of her TV daughter?
“She’s really sweet. And she’s Australian, so that totally works."
Of course, it's bittersweet when any show is coming to an end, and it becomes all the more real when there's a final San Diego Comic-Con panel to see it off. But Torv is looking on the bright side.
"We’re fortunate that we can end the show knowing that we’re ending the show," she said.
"Our writers are going to be able to do it justice, serving the viewers and serving us as well, because we’ve put a lot in. And we can make it count, knowing we can finish the game."
In 1969, William Shatner thought his iconic show's run was over.
“I finished ‘Star Trek’ late one night and everybody said goodbye and off I went, saying, ‘That’s the end of that show.' It was just a good show and that was the end of it."
Little did he know that the fans had other ideas; they wouldn't let the show fade into obscurity. "Star Trek" conventions began in earnest.
As the years went by, Shatner wondered what motivated these fans to go to conventions year after year, so he embarked on a sociological, anthropological study of "Star Trek" fandom that became a book and then a film called "Get a Life!" The works are based on a famous "Saturday Night Live" sketch in which Shatner went off on a tirade against "Star Trek" fans. The documentary is set to premiere on Epix on July 28.
It takes one to know one. When it comes to topics of interest to nerds, geeks, and superfans, we know how true that is. Geek Out! features stories from a nerd's perspective that you can still share with your "normal" friends and family.
