Fringe Season 5 News: The Observers
“Letters Of Transit”
Fringe producers Jeff Pinkner and exec JH Wyman tease the final season of the fan favourite show in the new issue of SFX, and a here’s a little extract to whet your appetites:
Will the season look like the fascist Observer-led future of 2036 glimpsed in the season four episode “Letters Of Transit”?
“Yeah, I think it’s safe to say you will [see that],” says Wyman. “Part of our storytelling is about reveals and re-contextualizing what you think you know and what you’ve seen and putting it in a different mind frame for the viewer. It’s good to say that future is important to our storytelling but it’s not the be-all and end-all. The critical question is always why do we do flashbacks or flash-forwards and for us there is always a reason. Does ‘Letters Of Transit’ have further implications? It does. You need to understand what it is, or was, in order to fully grasp the thematic things we want to tell this year.”
SFX #223 is in the shops on Wednesday 30 May.
