Soaps.com sat in during a conference call with the FOX series’ Executive Producers Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan. When asked about plans for Angela, Hanson responded, “We have no plans to move Michaela [Conlin] off the show. Angela, this is her season to start to think that her life was meant to be bigger than just recreating crimes and living in a life of murder. She’s feeling antsy, but I’m very speedy to say we have no plans to diminish Michaela’s involvement in the show.”
If you’re wondering how they’re going to keep the tension between Booth and Brennan going, now that they’re back together and have a baby, Nathan stated, “I think what we’ve done this season, hopefully, is kind of give them stories that are overwhelming emotionally so we see how they react as a couple, so that we see how their relationship is tested. We’re doing that by keeping Pelant alive, by adding somebody to their household, which will happen soon, and also really putting themselves in situations that neither of them ever expected themselves to be in.”
Renewal! The USA Network has picked up its longest running original series for another season. Look for the second half of season six to return on Thursday November 8 at 9:00 PM – with season seven to follow in 2013.

Abrams stated, “It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of ‘Fringe’. I will always owe the cast and crew for pouring their hearts and souls into every dimension of this series. Creating the show with Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman was a joy, but watching it evolve over the years into such an imaginative, insane and heartbreaking ride is nothing less than a thrill. I am grateful to our blessed fans, and to Kevin Reilly and Peter Rice and everyone at the glorious Fox network for allowing ‘Fringe’ to reach its bittersweet conclusion.”
