The Fox network has renewed the series Fringe for a final, shortened season of 13 episodes, according to the New York Times. A drama about an F.B.I. team that looks into the nether regions of "fringe science" starring Joshua Jackson (pictured) and Anna Torv, Fringe regularly attracts only about three million viewers when it is broadcast on Friday nights — low numbers for a network show.

Co-creator J.J.
