Fringe co-creator JJ Abrams has insisted that the show will continue to build on its mythology.
Abrams told TV Line that the sci-fi drama will not change dramatically in an attempt to attract new viewers.
"It's kind of doing what the show needs to do to be the best version of the show, as opposed to just the apologists' stand-alone thing," he said. "I don't think Fringe could ever be [that]."
However, Abrams confirmed that his new shows, Fox drama Alcatraz and CBS series Person of Interest, will focus more on standalone stories.
"Shows like Alcatraz and certainly Person of Interest have much more of a shot because it's much more, clearly a new case every week," he suggested. "Whereas Fringe is like more about this insanely twisted family of people that are working in this crazy lab."
Fringe star John Noble (Walter Bishop) previously claimed that the show's fourth season will launch with a nine-episode "package" that will "restart" the series.
