Either way, Fox continues to hammer out season after season. This month, the show returns with a revamped roster: Randy Jackson, country singer Keith Urban, legendary diva Mariah Carey and hip-hop star Nicki Minaj. We’re interested to see if this quad has what it takes to push A.I. back to the top.

Like all things in the Fringe universe, we hope the finale goes above and beyond the realm of possibility. It’s time to pull out all the stops.

But there are plans for a JR funeral, where they’ll give the character and actor a proper farewell.
