An F.B.I. agent is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist and his son in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena.
Season three continues the rabbit-hole journey of three unlikely souls — FBI Agent Olivia Dunham, Fringe Scientist Walter Bishop and his jack-of-all-trades son Peter — through mind-bending investigations, parallel realities and threats growing in the borderlands between science and the unimaginable.
Season two follows the continuation of a war between two universes, the prime and the parallel, exploring the ever-blurring line between science fiction and reality, where hybrid monsters tear through sewers, thieves walk through walls, and portals open to worlds unknown.
As the first season begins, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham is called in to investigate a mysterious outbreak that nearly kills her partner. The only person with any answers is an institutionalized scientist, Dr. Walter Bishop who can only be released under the care of his estranged son. Together, the three discover that the answer to this mystery is only a small piece of a much larger, more shocking truth.
