What is Fringe About?
Set in Boston, the FBI’s Fringe Division began when Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv) enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist WALTER BISHOP (John Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, PETER (Joshua Jackson), to help in the investigation of an airline disaster that defied human logic. After the defining case was solved and revealed to be one of a series of unusual incidents linked together, the unlikely trio supervised by Special Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Junior Agent ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole) was formed.
As unimaginable events continued to unfold over the first two seasons, the Fringe Division’s investigations often led them to the multifaceted biomedical science, energy and technology corporation Massive Dynamic and its enigmatic chief executive NINA SHARP (Blair Brown). When Olivia discovered that she was a test subject as a child of Walter Bishop and Massive Dynamic’s elusive founder and chairman WILLIAM BELL (guest star Leonard Nimoy), it triggered a search for details about her forgotten and perplexing past. Her findings uncovered the existence of a parallel universe where Bell ominously warned of a threat that would change our world forever. She also recovered her childhood ability to detect objects from this parallel universe, which shockingly led her to learn that Peter is from the “other side.” As a result, Walter revealed that he kidnapped Peter as a child from the parallel universe 25 years ago. Evident by the omnipresence of the “Observers,” there is more than one of everything in the worlds of FRINGE.
