NYCC is thrilled to announce that Joshua Jackson will be appearing at NYCC as part of our Fringe panel – taking place Sunday, February 8. A critically acclaimed thriller, Fringe centers on an unlikely trio uncovering a mystery involving a series of unbelievable events and delves beneath the surface as the threat of a larger, more disturbing pattern blurs the line between the possible and the impossible. Fringe, from J.J. Abrams (Lost), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci – the team behind Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III and Alias – and fellow executive producers Jeff Pinkner (Lost, Alias) and Bryan Burk (Lost, Alias), airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX. Jackson portrays Peter Bishop on the hit series. Previously announced panelists include Anna Torv (“Olivia Dunham”Â), John Noble (“Dr. Walter Bishop”Â), Jasika Nicole (“Astrid Farnsworth”Â), Lance Reddick (“Phillip Broyles”Â), Kirk Acevedo (“Charlie Francis”Â), and Blair Brown (“Nina Sharp”Â).â€¨â€¨
Additionally, due to the size of the appearing cast and fan response to our original panel announcements, NYCC will be moving the Fringe panel into our biggest room – the IGN Theater. NYCC’s Fringe panel will take place at 2 PM on Sunday, February 8 in the IGN Theater. The Fringe panel will directly follow NYCC’s Dollhouse panel featuring Joss Whedon and Tahmoh Penikett (12:45-1:45).â€¨â€¨
Select Fringe cast members will be autographing immediately following their panel in the Autograph Area in the rear of the Exhibition Hall. The Fringe autographing is not ticketed.
