FOX releases Season 2 synopsis and promo photosNews / Spoilers | Posted by Scully
This is what FOX FLASH had to say about Season 2:
Last season’s No. 1 new series among Adults 18-49, FRINGE returns for a second thrilling season and will continue to explore the unexplained phenomena and terrifying occurrences linked throughout the world – known simply as “The Pattern” – in pursuit of a larger, more shocking truth.
Set in Boston, the FBI’s Fringe Division formed when Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv) enlisted the help of institutionalized “fringe” scientist WALTER BISHOP (John Noble) and his son, PETER (Joshua Jackson), to save her partner and lover from a mind-bending death. Through unconventional and unorthodox methods, the FRINGE team imagines and tests the impossibilities while investigating unbelievable events, macabre crimes and mystifying cases involving teleportation, reanimation, genetic mutation, precognition, artificial intelligence and other fantastical theories. When the unimaginable happens, it’s their job to stop it.
Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) guides the group, while by-the-book Agent CHARLIE FRANCIS (Kirk Acevedo) and Junior Agent ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole) provide support and depth to the team. Underscoring the unfolding mysteries, enigmatic Massive Dynamic executive NINA SHARP (Blair Brown) asserts that the advancement of technology is changing the world of science, and conversely, the science of the world.
In the shocking season finale, Olivia’s anticipated introduction to Walter Bishop’s former lab partner and Massive Dynamic founder WILLIAM BELL (guest star Leonard Nimoy) revealed the existence of a parallel universe and the ability to travel between the two worlds. This new universe has a different, intriguing history and holds secrets of its own, which was evident when Walter stunningly visited his son’s gravestone.
Each episode of the sophomore season promises to uncover more about the larger threat and while some questions will be answered, new ones will surface. The intensity accelerates as Season Two opens with Olivia’s shocking return to this reality, and a determined Peter, unknowingly in a race against time with an ominous mobile force, pursues information about Olivia’s blurred and perplexing visit to the alternate reality. Meanwhile, Walter reenters the lab to cook up a bit of fringe science, and of course, some custard for someone’s birthday.
Created by J.J. Abrams and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, FRINGE is produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams, Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers, while Kurtzman and Orci are consulting producers. Additionally, Pinkner and Wyman serve as the series’ show-runners.
Here are the newest Promo photos: I find it interesting that Charlie is in the photos but our new character Amy is not!

Peter looks different… in these promo pictures…

Slimmer..dressed in grey. Surprising that they put him in the middle of the group shot, instead of Olivia. I noticed differences too..hadn’t said anything because i didn’t want it to seem like i was looking too hard into things.

Maybe they are trying to convey that Peter will have more of a role in season 2?

what’s up with the shadows? and why is peter’s the only one looking different??
August 16th, 2009 at 1:45 pm
good eye afro! i hadn’t noticed that, and yes, peter’s shadow’s the only one in a defensive position, while the others are identical [which means, not theirs either]
August 16th, 2009 at 3:13 pm
the others aren’t necessarily identical… I’ve found there are tiny differences between some of them. Walter’s and astrid’s are the only ones who look relatively close to the exact same… (for example, Charlie’s funky shadow looks like there’s something in the hand closest to the doorknob — not so in the others; Broyle’s funky shadow’s hand closest to the doorknob looks like it’s more palm-out than the other ones *not sure how to describe that* like the fingers are pointed more towards the doorknob)
And also, it was my belief that Peter’s shadow was reaching towards the doorknob, hence the arm in that seemingly “defensive” position.

I also just noticed something else about Charlie’s photo — while behind the door in the other pictures is all light, as if a light is shining brightly in the room behind the door… Charlie’s room is dark.

The shadows probobly the observer right? It looks bald with ears that stick out slightly. Also tall and thin.
I notice the arm on the right for each shadow is thinner and longer but It’s probobly just that they are standing at an angle.
Peter’s shadow looks like it is going to open the door…or close it. Maybe the observer will make contact with peter this season?
