John Noble: ‘Fringe future is secure’
Fringe star John Noble has claimed that the show is likely to be renewed for a fourth season.
Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly previously claimed that the sci-fi drama “could be on the air for many years” if it maintained its current ratings.
Speaking at the Emerald City Comicon, Noble said: “We’ve not only [maintained our viewership], we’ve exceeded it.”
He added that the series has set a new record for time-shifted viewing, with many fans choosing to watch the show via a DVR.
“Based on those figures, I think we should be fairly safe,” suggested the actor. “Unless Kevin breaks his word, and I don’t think he will.”
The future of Fringe has been in doubt since the show was moved to an unpopular Friday night slot earlier this year.
The series returns to Fox this Friday at 9/8c.
