Olivia and Peter have seen the future...and it’s bleak! The Fifth and Final season of the sci-fi series "Fringe" opens with Walter Bishop and his son Peter having arrived in the future - 2036 to be exact. After rescuing FBI Special Unit investigator Olivia Dunham who has been trapped in amber, Walter is captured by the Observers, a sinister race of aliens that have taken control of the planet and eliminated all free will.

Walter has the key - a plan trapped in his mind - that can change the landscape of the future, and prevent the events that have lead the Fringe Team to this desolate future tense. But first he has to remember!

Now they’re on a mission to make things right and save mankind...and Olivia and Peter have unique insight from their daughter Etta, who is now an adult resistance fighter and the Observer’s prime target. If things go according to plan, this future will never happen, and Olivia can give her daughter a second chance - in a present free of the Observer’s tyranny.

Fortunately Dr. Bishop anticipated that he might forget the plan and videotaped the plot to defeat the invaders...in several parts. Each tape has a clue, a piece of the puzzle to saving the future and remove the Observer threat entirely. By putting it all together the original members of the Fringe Division are determined to save the world before they’re out of time!

Considered one of the best science-fiction series on television, "Fringe" intrigues with its extensive mythology and real-life exploration of "fringe science." Time travel, alternate universes, alien conspiracies - it may appear far-fetched but it made for one of the most compelling hours on television from visionary producer J.J. Abrams.

"Fringe: The Complete Fifth and Final Season" takes fans to the edge in spectacular high-definition. Behind the scenes features reveal the theories that helped take the "little show that could" all the way to deliver its final arc. True fans can also delight in the unprecedented access to the "Fringe" Comic-Con Panel and will revel in the episode commentary. The 3-disc set also includes "unaired scenes" and a gag reel.
