An ending date has apparently been set for a Fox series that is heading into its final season, TVGuide.com reports. The end date of Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, has been set for “Fringe,” according to a Twitter post by executive producer J.H. Wyman.
Fox would not confirm the date for the series finale, which is being written and directed by Wyman, according to the report. The new date represents a change from what the plan that was outlined previously.
“In July, Fox boss Kevin Reilly told reporters the series’ swan song would air in January,” the story notes. Speaking at Fox’s Television Critics Association fall preview session, Reilly said: "There’s probably going to be a few interruptions, but not many. Just the holidays. [The series] will end in January."
The show’s fifth and final season launches Sept. 28.
