Sad but exciting news as TV’s coolest sci-fi show winds up, TVLine have confirmed the date of the final two episodes of Fringe Season 5 (and indeed Fringe, full-stop) as 18 January 2013 on Fox.

The two hour-long episodes will go out back-to-back on 18 January, and are expected to air soon after on Sky 1 in the UK.

Star Anna Torv commented,  “In film, you can have sad endings – like, ‘Oh well, it could’ve been’ – but with television, you put so much time into these people that when you do finally say goodbye, you should be satisfied.

“Not necessarily happy, but not heartbroken.”

Fringe Season 4 is available on DVD for £30 and on Blu-ray for £37.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
