At Wondercon 2012 in Anaheim, CA, we got a chance to chat with “Fringe” producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner. Now, these guys could be in the CIA, they’re so good about keeping secrets. They teased us, saying that we shouldn’t necessarily trust what we’re told about new casting and who Henry Ian Cusick and Georgina Haig will be playing. They also gave us some info about easter eggs in the show and how they’ll handle finishing the story if they don’t get a pickup.
“You may or may not know that every week, there is an Easter egg imbedded in every episode that teases that next episode,” Wyman says. “So literally, from the first episode, there has been something that teases some element of the very next episode. And there have been season and series-long Easter eggs floating out there as well. Some of which have been seen and misinterpreted and some of which have never been found.”
They said that if they don’t get picked up, they’ll probably write one special edition comic. “It would be really elaborate and we would go to town on it and make sure that everything you needed to understand about the show would be in that and pay off that way. That’s our back up plan,” says Pinkner.
“Fringe” returns Friday night on Fox.
