Fringe star Joshua Jackson has reacted to Fox chief Kevin Reilly‘s recent comments on the show’s future. Speaking at the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press tour in Los Angeles, Reilly revealed that the sci-fi drama is losing money for Fox.
“He could not have been more clear,” Jackson told Entertainment Weekly. “He’s not running a charitable foundation. And if the show is really not making money [then that should be it].”
The actor, who plays Peter Bishop, added: “The important thing to me is that our writers are given a chance to finish the show [properly] because it’s a serialized show.” My Joshua does look nice in a suit!
Reilly himself also clarified his comments, insisting that Fringe will conclude in a satisfactory manner if its fourth season proves to be its last. “I don’t want it to go out with a whimper,” he said. “We don’t want to fumble the ball at the five-yard line. If it ends up being the last show, we’ll end up doing it right.”
