'Fringe' Star Anna Torv: The Series Finale 'Has Been Written'

'Fringe' star Anna TorvDying to know how 'Fringe' will end? Star Anna Torv, who plays Agent Olivia Dunham, says the writers have it all planned.

In an interview with TV & Satellite Week, Torv admitted that the hit sci-fi show's last episode is already mapped out. "I've been told the ultimate final episode has been written," Torv said. "[The writers] know where they want us to go, but they don't know yet when we will get there."

The executive producers of 'Fringe' have hinted at a seven-year plan for the show, but given it's eternal "on the bubble" status, it makes sense that they'd want to be prepared, just in case.

But Torv said she wants to be kept in the dark, admitting she has no idea what they have in store. "Initially, I wanted to know ... now I'm happy not to. There's something great about working on a film or a play where you know where you're going, but on television it's more open and that's good, too."

Torv also admitted that, in the writers room, things "could still change," explaining that what's been decided is more of a skeleton for them to continue to flesh out.

"It's more of a dance between the audience, the creators and the cast about what works and what doesn't," she said. "It's nice that although the skeleton of what is going to happen is there, it's still a dance."

'Fringe' will return for a fourth season -- which, if fans have anything to say about it, won't be its last -- on Friday nights this fall (8PM ET on Fox).

So 'Fringe' fans, I'm curious: If you were on the show, would you want to know?

No, I wouldn't want to know. That way it would all be fresh and I wouldn't be thinking "Wow, they brought in so and so to the script...does this mean they are ending the show this season? Should I be looking for a new job?"LOL
