Co-created by J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Oci, Fringe will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between the possible and the impossible. The series follows an FBI Fringe Division team based in Boston, Massachusetts using FBI investigative techniques as well as theories of ‘fringe’ science (levitation, telepathy, invisibility, teleportation, dark matter, and many others) to investigate a series of unexplained often ghastly occurrences taking place all over the world called “The Pattern.”

When an international flight lands at Boston's Logan Airport with no signs of life, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) is called in to investigate as part of an inter-agency task force. After her partner, Special Agent John Scott (Mark Valley), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to DR. Walter Bishop (John Noble), our generation's Einstein. There's only one catch: he's been institutionalized for the last 17 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son Peter (Joshua Jackson) in to help.

All over the world “The Pattern is causing strange things such as a newborn baby who rapidly ages and dies within a few hours, a bus full of passengers trapped in a strange substance like mosquitoes in amber. Olivia, Peter, and Walter are in charge of investigating these strange events to determine their source.

When Olivia's investigation leads to multi-billion dollar corporation Massive Dynamic and its manipulative corporate executive, Nina Sharp (Blair Brown), our unlikely trio, along with Department of Homeland Security Agent Philip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and FBI Agents Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo) and Astrid Fransworth (Jasika Nicole), will discover that what happened on Flight 627 is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.
