Statement: “In this challenging and uncertain economic environment”–
You mean the one where “Fringe” is getting huge ratings?
“–we have made the very difficult decision to move the production of ‘Fringe’ from New York to Canada in the event the series is renewed for a second season.”
Read: “Fringe” is being renewed for a second season.
“We did not come to this conclusion easily–“
It was tough. We get it.
“–but economic and practical imperatives dictated that this decision be made in a timely manner.”
Read: “Fringe” is definitely being renewed for a second season.
“We are deeply indebted to the talented New York production crew–“
Who are now hitting up their friends who work on “Gossip Girl” for a job.
“–that helped bring the first season of ‘Fringe’ to life, and we thank them for their invaluable contributions–“
Not literally invaluable, of course.
“– to the show’s success.”
“Fringe” shooting in Vancouver. Now if the show would just hire David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to replace its paranormal-investigating FBI agents, “X-Files” fans would be set.
