Fringe star John Noble has confirmed that the show will "reset" when it returns for a fourth season.
The actor previously suggested that the Fringe writing team might "give [the show] a restart" following the disappearance of Peter (Joshua Jackson).
Noble told TV Line: "All I know is that [the show] will do a reset, and that [the writers] are really excited."
He continued: "I know that they have about nine episodes in a sort of package [to begin the season]."
Noble, who plays both Walter Bishop and his doppelganger Walternate on the sci-fi drama, also suggested that his two characters will be forced to work together in future episodes.
"It doesn't make sense for them not to, ultimately," he said. "But it won't be easy."
Noble recently admitted that he expects Fringe to run for five seasons, but added that he would be "surprised" if the show continued beyond that point.
The fourth season of Fringe will premiere on Fox on September 23.
