Oh Fringe.

The first official teaser for the upcoming fourth season of Fox’s cult sci-fi drama has hit the web and it doesn’t answer any looming questions. In fact, it raises the biggest one: “Where is Peter Bishop?” Is he in an alternate dimension? Does he even exist? Is this all a dream?

No new scenes from the upcoming season of Fringe were featured, so where did the scene in the 10-second teaser from from? A Season 1 episode titled “The Arrival.” (Some even noticed that “The Arrival,” which centers on the Observers, was the first season’s fourth episode. Coincidence?)

Like many out-of-this-world conundrums and situations the Fringe gang find themselves in, the scene still has its intended effect after the shocking third season closer, which left many viewers questioning Peter’s true existence.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fringe showrunner Jeff Pinkner admitted that the inevitable questions about Peter would be difficult to answer, especially during its Comic-Con panel next Saturday. “We’ll probably be faced with those questions. Our answer will probably be, 'Who’s Peter?,' " Pinkner joked.

Fringe returns for its fourth season on Friday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
