The actors on Fringe may have gotten teary at Comic-Con talking about the end of the series, but on set last week, they sang a stronger tune. They’re about halfway through filming their final season, and the end game still seems like a distant future, most said.
But when EW handed Anna Torv a pair of tiny golden Ewes – her awards for winning Best Actress in a Drama and Best Drama in EW’s 5th annual EWwys – that’s when she began to tear up. And who can blame her? 1) The sheep are adorable. And 2) as you’ll hear her say, the statues come from the people who kept the show alive for five years.

UPDATE: Fringe executive producer/showrunner J.H. Wyman also shared some kind words! “On behalf of everyone involved in Fringe, I want to take a moment to thank all of our incredible fans who voted and have made Fringe the winner of Entertainment Weekly’s Best Drama Series EWwy Award for the third year in a row,” he tells EW. “We are honored to have had such a dedicated and loyal fanbase supporting this show over the years, and we are working overtime to deliver an unforgettable fifth and final season.”
