FRINGE Recruits Boardwalk Empire’s Emily Meade for Season Finale

Emily Meade

One of the FRINGE teams is getting a new member. TVLine reports that Emily Meade (Boardwalk Empire) will appear in the FOX drama’s third season finale as a rookie FBI agent.

Meade’s character is described as “wide-eyed and eager” and should Fringe be renewed for a fourth season (fingers and toes crossed), she could recur next season. We don’t yet know which Fringe team she’ll be joining–the one on our side or the one in the alternate universe–or exactly why. Maybe the finale’s eerie title, “The Day We Died,” provides a clue?

Meade is best known for playing Pearl, Jimmy’s (Michael Pitt) prostitute girlfriend on Boardwalk Empire. She has also appeared in episodes of Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU.

Fringe airs on FOX Fridays at 9pm eastern/8 central. The season finale airs May 6.
