Fringe to Continue Even if Cancelled

Fringe comic bookFor most Fringe Fans, (myself included) it has been a nerve-racking couple of months as Fox’s critically acclaimed mind-bending drama has seen a steady decrease in ratings. The dismal numbers lead many to assume that cancellation will be the likely outcome as Fringe‘s last new episode to air barely broke 3 million viewers. (You can check those numbers here!) To ease some of the sting, executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H Wyman have promised that, in the event of cancellation, the story will continue, just not in the way that you would expect. Like the previously announced Smallville comic, Fringe would do something similar where the show would continue in comic book form.

Speaking at Wondercon 2012, Pinkner had this to say about the comic, “It would be really elaborate and we would go to town on it and make sure that everything you needed to understand about the show would be in that and pay off that way. That’s our back up plan.”

Although it would be unfortunate to no longer have the Fringe team grace our television screens, a comic book is an interesting angle to take. Die hard Fringe fans might recall this would not be the Fringe team’s first comic book appearance as Joshua Jackson (The Boy Who Lived/Peter Bishop) also made his comic book debut by writing the three part series “Beyond the Fringe.”

What do you think Fringe fans? Would you read the comic continuation if the worst were to happen?

Fringe returns this Friday.
