Fringe, the series that Rolling Stone calls the "most exciting drama around," returns with a brand new season of endless impossibilities exploring the depths of the mysterious saga that holds millions of viewers in its hypnotic grasp. Shape shifters, cryonic heads, belly-dwelling beasts, and shadows that turn victims to dust inhabited the last season.
Season Three plunges further down the rabbit-hole as we rejoin our three unlikely partners - FBI Agent Olivia Dunham, brilliant but damaged scientist Walter Bishop, and his jack-of-all-trades son Peter - on mind-bending investigations, battling threats lurking at the border between science and science fiction. The world of the impossible is alive and well in what The New York Times describes as "the most satisfying, coherent story arc of any science-fiction-flavoured primetime drama."
01 - Olivia
At the conclusion of last season, a distraught Peter returned to his otherworldly origins to reconnect with his roots and his birth mother (guest star ORLA BRADY). When the Fringe Team mobilized to retrieve Peter, it was seen as an attack on the alternate universe and led to an intense situation with Walter and Olivia pitted against their doppelgangers in a race against time. William Bell made the ultimate sacrifice that paved the way for Peter to return "over here" with Walter and a disguised alternate Olivia at his side. This extraordinary turn of events shockingly left an imprisoned Olivia "over there." The quest to retrieve Peter from the parallel universe will raise questions about identity and choices next season. In the Season Three premiere, a disoriented Olivia fights to find her way home, and we are introduced to her mother, Marilyn (guest star AMY MADIGAN). Meanwhile, Peter and Walter try to move on with their lives - unknowingly alongside the alternate Olivia.
