The folks over at the Science Channel are going to be making sci-fi fans very happy starting this Thanksgiving weekend. What are they doing, you ask? Well, they will be airing all five seasons of the fan favorite series Fringe this year and next year, staring with the network premiere of the two-hour pilot and the first episode on Tuesday, November 20 from 8 to 11 PM (ET/PT). The cabler will then continue to air season one of the series with day-long marathons on Friday, November 23 from 10:30 AM to 11 PM (ET/PT) and Saturday, November 24 from 11:30 AM to 11 PM (ET/PT). ‘Fringe’ will then move to its regular timeslot on the Science Channel that of Tuesday nights from 8 to 11 PM (ET/PT) beginning on November 27, airing season two.
‘Fringe’ explores the ever-blurring line between scientific concepts and reality, where hybrid beings tear through sewers, thieves walk through walls and portals open to parallel universes. Unable to police a world in which science has advanced beyond our wildest dreams –and nightmares– Olivia Dunham (series star Anna Torv) seeks help from Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his jack-of-all-trades son, Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson). Under the direction of Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Agents Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole), Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo) and Lincoln Lee (Seth Gabel), the Fringe Team investigates unusual incidents that defy human logic and unimaginable events that threaten our very existence on a universal scale.
Featuring leading experts such as Dr. Michio Kaku, Science Channel will examine phenomena such as time travel, dream sharing and parallel universes with the short-form series, “Science of Fringe”. Also, every Tuesday night Science Channel airings of FRINGE will begin with a special appearance by series star John Noble, who will set the stage for the back-to-back-to-back episodes.
Mark those calendars and join in the adventure on the Science Channel!
