‘Fringe’ May Be Back for 5th Season, But One Cast Member Won’t Be

Fringe The End of All Things

The viewers of Fringe are, more likely than not, going to be upset about a recent casting change on the fan favorite FOX drama that was just announced.

Actor Seth Gabel, who has played Lincoln Lee on the series since 2010, will not be returning as a series regular.

According to a recent interview at TV Line, lead actress Anna Torv shared that the odds of (Seth) returning are slim. She stated, “I don’t think [we’ll see Lincoln again] unless we go to the other side.”

But the news isn’t completely awful as a ‘Fringe’ insider said that a guest appearance (or two) by Gabel could possibly happen during the show’s final 13 episodes.

‘Fringe’ will be back on FOX on Friday nights at 9 PM this fall.
