|Talk||Season 4||No theories|
The Fall Season, or the initial third of Season 4, was a completely integrated block of seven related episodes that aired before the Winter holidays in North America. Executive producers have described the first four episodes as one continuous storyline about the aftermath of the Season 3 finale. After that, Fall episodes aired non-consecutively because of network commitments to broadcast Major League Baseball championship games in late October and early November, 2011.
At the Critics' Choice Television Awards in June 2011, Jeff Pinkner offered this about the upcoming fourth season.
- "Without revealing anything, we have some really... we have some things we’re very excited about. We’re bringing back some characters who were among our favorites.":
In a video interview, Joel Wyman set the tone for viewing in the new season.
- "There will be a sort of a shift. You will really understand FRINGE in a different way, and you'll examine things that you didn't know were there to examine.":
