Season three of Fringe is in the books. Fans are awaiting the start of season four which they worked so hard to make happen. Then they know there will be hard work again to guarantee a fifth season.
Meanwhile, Anna Torv, who plays Olivia Dunham on the show, states that the series finale to Fringe has already been written. Wait, what?
Not sure if that can be believed honestly, but Digital Spy reports it to be true.
Torv says that she personally does not have any idea how the series will be completed but she has a belief that the writers and producers already know exactly what they want to do at the end. She recently spoke with TV & Satellite Week and told them she knows certain things.
“I’ve been told the ultimate final episode has been written. [The writers] know where they want us to go, but they don’t know yet when we will get there.”
Anyone ever seen Memento?
Nothing is set in stone of course even if an ending has already been scripted. Torv acknowledged that fact.
“It’s more of a dance between the audience, the creators and the cast about what works and what doesn’t,” [..] “It’s nice that although the skeleton of what is going to happen is there, it’s still a dance.”
Often times to avoid any type of spoilers or leaks, show creators or producers will avoid giving the cast their episode scripts until right before it is time to shoot. Not worried about that, Torv would rather not know where things are going anyway.
“Initially, I wanted to know [what's going to happen], now I’m happy not to. There’s something great about working on a film or a play where you know where you’re going, but on television it’s more open and that’s good too.”
