    Fringe: The Complete Series also available on Blu-Ray and DVD May 7, 2013
    BURBANK, CA (January XX, 2013) – The battle to save our world reaches a climactic conclusion as the Fringe team makes its final stand in the release of Fringe: The Complete Fifth & Final Season from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. The critically acclaimed fifth season of television’s most thrilling sci-fi series features 13 mindbending episodes with over 90 minutes of special features, including an exclusive featurette, coverage of the Fringe cast at Comic-Con 2012, producer commentary, and a gag reel. Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group (WBHEG) is releasing Fringe: The Complete Fifth & Final Season and Fringe: The Complete Series on DVD and Blu-Ray May 7, 2013 with SRPs of $39.98 / $49.99 and $159.96 / $197.50, respectively. Order due date is April 2, 2013.
    Season Five picks up from events depicted in Season Four’s flash-forward episode “Letters in Transit,” wherein the once seemingly peaceful Observers have seized control of our universe. Now, in 2036, they have become ruthless rulers who stand unopposed, and the Fringe Team is forced to take their final stand. The remaining Fringe team — comprised of Fringe scientist Water Bishop, Walter’s son, Peter, and FBI agents Olivia Dunham and Astrid Farnsworth — – is joined by Olivia and Peter’s now-grown daughter, Etta, in a final season filled with struggle, surprises and sacrifice. The team must bring together all they have witnessed in preparation for the final battle to save their world.
    Fringe executive producer/showrunner J.H. Wyman said: “We’re extremely excited that the fifth and final season of Fringe will be out very soon this coming spring. From our cast and crew, to all of our friends in the press and especially to the fans, we could not be more grateful for this incredible experience. We hope this DVD set gives an even closer look at the amazing adventure we had these past five seasons.”
    “We are thrilled to release Fringe: The Complete Fifth & Final Season and Fringe: The Complete Series on DVD and Blu-ray,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. “Season Five took fans on an extraordinary final journey with the Fringe team – one filled with unimaginable struggle, hypnotic suspense, and heart-breaking drama. While we’re sad to see this iconic show come to an end, we are excited to make the Fifth Season and the Complete Set available on DVD and Blu-ray, so the show’s loyal fans can re-watch their favorite episodes again and again.”

Abrams (Lost, Super 8, Star Trek films) & Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Hawaii 5-0, Star Trek and Transformers films), the fifth season of Fringe stars Anna Torv (The Pacific), Joshua Jackson (Dawson’s Creek), Lance Reddick (Lost, The Wire), Blair Brown (Altered States), Jasika Nicole (She’s Out of My League) and John Noble (The Lord of the Ringsfilms).

    Great news. Love the show and really enjoyed the finale. Can't wait for a chance to go back through the final season without having to wait a week or more between epsiodes. BTW... The WB shop has the first four Fringe sets up as part of their January Clearance sale, so anyone who has held off on buying the series, on disc, you have two days left to save BIG. (I just bought the first four seasons on Blu Ray; the first time I have ever "double-dipped" on a TV series, and no doubt the last.) BD sets $21.29 (except S4, $23.79 for some reason) with free shipping. DVDs are $17.49 (S1 - S3, $19.99 S4) and they also ship for free. If you don't have a BD player, buy a cheap one and get the series on BD. The DVDs are notably inferior in video quality, not only to the BDs, but to other TV series on DVD. Regards, Joe

    OK, maybe I'm losing my mind, but I don't see any pre-order links in that post.. Also there's a typo in the press release. The season 4 flash-forward episode that sets the stage for season 5 is "Letters OF Transit", not "Letters IN Transit". (The title is a reference to Casablanca.) Regards, Joe

    You're right. I installed an ad blocker for Firefox on this laptop a few months ago and promptly forgot about it. Just disabled it on the HTF and I can see the pre-order links. (And I just placed my order for the S5 Blu Ray at Amazon. :)) Thanks, Joe

    I have a couple of questions about the links. If I use a referral link to get to amazon and subsequently purchase something other than the linked item do you guys *still* get a % of the order? I've done that on occasion thinking that was the case but would really like to know for sure. And do I need to do all my business in a single browser window for it to work properly? I tend to use several tabs during a amazon session and want to make sure I'm not doing something that would take the % you guys get away.

    Howie, Absolutely, that is the case. If you go to Amazon through one of our links to preorder/purchase a Blu-ray/DVD and then shop for other item(s) we also get a percentage of that purchase. Doesn't cost you anything extra, of course. Very thankful to you for doing that.
