The "Buffy" and "Lost" alum reunites with J.J. Abrams.

David Fury has traded one alternate universe for another.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum has signed on to Fox's sci-fi drama Fringe as a writer-producer after departing the network's Steven Spielberg series Terra Nova in September.

The Fringe gig marks Fury's reunion with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot. Fury served as a co-executive producer and penned four episodes of Abrams' Lost during Season 1. He was nominated for a writing Emmy in 2004 for penning the series' "Walkabout" episode.  

Fury, who also served as a co-executive producer on Fox's 24, joins co-creators Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci as well as showrunners Jeff Pinker and J.H. Wyman.

Fury had signed on to serve as an executive producer on Terra Nova but left the prehistoric time-travel series in September, citing creative differences.

Fringe was renewed for a fourth season in March.
