It comes in 3’s!

Along with  ABC & NBC, FOX jumped on the renewal bandwagon:

Fringe has officially been renewed for a third season!

While the show definitely dropped in numbers their second season when it was moved in the uber-competitive Thursday 9p (EST) time period, the show’s numbers helped (along with Bones) FOX increase their numbers for that night.  I guess you could say Fringe “took one for the team”, and have since been rewarded for it with this early renewal.

Here’s the official press release from FOX:

FOX RENEWS “FRINGE” FOR A THIRD SEASON OF ENDLESS IMPOSSIBILITIES

FOX has renewed FRINGE, the critically acclaimed thrilling drama, for a third season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company.

“FRINGE tapped into a deep creative mine this year that built momentum throughout the season and helped give us our first real foothold on TV’s most competitive night,” said Reilly. “The entire FRINGE team – from the producers and writers to the cast and crew – has taken smart storytelling and top production quality to a whole new level. The rest of this season is mind-blowing, and we can’t wait to get started on the third installment of this amazing journey.”

This season, FRINGE improved FOX’s performance in the time period (Thursdays, 9:00-10:00 PM) by 11% among Adults 18-49 and by 33% in Total Viewers. In fact, together with its BONES lead-in, FRINGE helped boost FOX’s Thursday average rating during the fall among Adults 18-49 by 52%.

“We could not be more excited to continue the wild ride of FRINGE. We are grateful to FOX, and our viewers, for allowing this fun, mind-bending adventure to go on,” said FRINGE co-creator and executive producer J.J. Abrams.

Series showrunners and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman added, “This early renewal comes at a great time and adds to the cast and crew’s energy and excitement as we head into production on this season’s revealing final two episodes. We have so many stories to tell, so this is awesome that we have another season to explore the worlds of FRINGE.”

The second season of FRINGE resumes with eight all-new and uninterrupted episodes beginning Thursday, April 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. In “Peter,” the spring premiere episode, Walter (John Noble) flashes back to 1985 while explaining Peter’s (Joshua Jackson) otherworldly origins to Olivia (Anna Torv). Also, Peter’s mother (guest star Orla Brady) is introduced and details of the neighboring world reaffirm that there is more than one of everything.

Created by J.J. Abrams & Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci, FRINGE stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown and Jasika Nicole. The series is produced   by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman serve as executive producers, while Kurtzman and Orci are consulting producers. Additionally, Pinkner and Wyman serve as the series’ showrunners.
