Whoa. Totally didn’t see this coming.

Despite being moved to the infamous Friday night death slot, Fringe – which follows the adventures of a group of government agents investigating the supernatural side of science – has been renewed for a fourth season. Though the last episode hit a ratings low point, I guess no none can say no J.J. Abrams. Executive producer J.H. Wyman tweeted the news Friday evening, saying, “Fringe was picked up!!!! Thanks Fringedom!” FOX Entertainment Chief Kevin Reilly recently said, “It’s a fantastic show, and honestly I’d be heartbroken if it went away.”

OK, now I’m scared. First Comedy Central renews “Futurama”, the best animated show on television, for two 13-episode seasons through 2013, and now FOX renews the best hour-long Sci-Fi wackness on television for a full 22-episode fourth season despite the current ratings?!

What alternative dimension did we fall in?
