Fringe - Spring Date, Pricing, Extras and Early Art for 'The Complete 5th and Final Season'
Blu-ray and DVD sets are on the way for May, along with 'Complete Series' bundles in both formats
Posted by David Lambert
In the fifth and final season premiere, Peter and his daughter Etta (GEORGINA HAIG) set out to find what happened to Olivia. The critically acclaimed and fan-favorite series, FRINGE, returns for its fifth and final season to deliver a climactic conclusion…in all worlds. Picking up from events depicted in season four's flash-forward episode, the seemingly peaceful Observers seized control of our universe in 2015.
Now, in 2036, they have become ruthless rulers who stand unopposed. What awaits in the future, however, is the Fringe Team's final stand, which will bring together all they have witnessed in preparation for the final battle to protect our world. Joining Fringe scientist Water Bishop, FBI agent Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop and the Fringe team is Olivia and Peter's now-grown daughter, Etta, in a final season filled with struggle, surprises, and sacrifice.
Warner Home Video hasn't formally announced it yet, but the studio's WBshop.com online store has put up listings for Fringe - The Complete 5th and Final Season on 4-disc DVD ($39.98 SRP) and also a high-def Blu-ray Disc set ($49.99 SRP). These sets will be in stores on May 7th, and will include the bonus features listed at Warner's site show as follows:
Featurette: A Farewell to Fringe
Fringe Panel at Comic-Con 2012
Blu-ray Only, USA Only: Includes UltraViolet so you can enjoy the film on many different compatible devices. MUST REDEEM WITHIN 2 YEARS OF THE STREET DATE
Our thanks to reader Jeremy Joyner for the heads-up about this. Below we have an early look at the package art for the Blu-ray edition of this title, but keep in mind that it might not be final and could be subject to change. On the same date, Warner will also be releasing "Fringe - The Complete Series" DVD and Blu-ray sets, but there is no detailed info about them (not even pricing) at the time of this writing. We don't know if there will be any special content or packaging, or if these will merely be bundles of the separate season sets into one big item. Stay tuned and we'll let you know if we find out anything!
