Season 5 picks up from events depicted in Season 4's flash-forward episode "Letters in Transit", wherein the once seemingly peaceful Observers have seized control of our universe. Now, in 2036, they have become ruthless rulers who stand unopposed, and the Fringe Team is forced to take their final stand. The remaining Fringe team - comprised of Fringe scientist Water Bishop, Walter's son, Peter, and FBI agents Olivia Dunham and Astrid Farnsworth - - is joined by Olivia and Peter's now-grown daughter, Etta, in a final season filled with struggle, surprises and sacrifice. The team must bring together all they have witnessed in preparation for the final battle to save their world.
