The fifth and final season of J.J. Abrams' sci-fi series is bound for Blu-ray in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has dated 'Fringe: The Complete Fifth Season' for Blu-ray on May 7, and a complete series box set is also expected on the same date.
SPOILER ALERT: Critically acclaimed, fan-favorite series Fringe returns for its fifth and final season to deliver a climactic conclusion to the saga... in all worlds. Picking up from events depicted in the fourth season's flash-forward episode, the seemingly peaceful Observers have seized control of our universe in 2015. Now, in 2036, they have become ruthless rulers who stand unopposed. What awaits in the future, however, is the Fringe Team's final stand, which will bring together all they have witnessed in preparation for the final battle to protect our world. Joining Fringe scientist Water Bishop (John Noble), FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) and the Fringe team is Olivia and Peter's now-grown daughter, Etta (Georgina Haig), in a final season filled with struggle, surprises, and sacrifice.
The 3-disc set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Producer Commentary, Featurette: A Farewell to Fringe, Fringe Panel at Comic-Con 2012, and Gag Reel.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray sets are still undetermined at this time.
