Fox may have renewed Fringe for a fourth season, but catastrophic change looms nonetheless. We’re speaking dramatically, of course. In the May 6 season finale, look for Peter (Joshua Jackson) to pursue a trippy solution to the parallel-world crisis threatening to negate Olivia (Anna Torv), Walter (John Noble), and pretty much everyone else in existence — one that may force certain former enemies to work together. ”But it requires an inventive intervention to make it happen,” Noble tells EW. ”It sets up next year’s storytelling — but what that story will be is TBD.” Adds Jackson: ”It’s radical. It could wipe clean the entire slate of Fringe as we know it.”

Bad news for Sam in Supernatural‘s finale?
The second hour of Supernatural’s two-hour finale (airing May 20) opens with ”a bang,” says EP Sera Gamble, as the wall in Sam’s mind that protects him from his darkest memories comes down. ”You see Sam in a state he’s never been in before.”

Brennan and Bones: friends with benefits? ”We are not going to embrace the Moonlighting curse,” says Bones exec producer Stephen Nathan. The May 19 finale goes to ”a place that we haven’t seen any show go before,” Nathan teases, adding that Bones will change ”in a fundamental way.”

Criminal Minds ‘ uncertain future
With Thomas Gibson and Shemar Moore still negotiating their contracts for next season, exec producer Erica Messer says the May 18 cliff-hanger finale will nod to BAU’s shaky future, but not with guns and explosions: ”It’s a more authentic version of ‘Our team is in jeopardy.”’
