The actress told CityTV that she is planning to helm one instalment of the Fox drama's fourth season.
"That's the plan," she confirmed. "I've been shadowing [ten-time director] Brad Anderson on this last episode and then I'll shadow two more directors, Joe Chapelle and Jeannot Szwarc."
She joked: "[It's] season four and it's time for some women to get in here and direct a very boy [-orientated] show that's heavy on hardware!"
However, Brown added that she has no interest in contributing to the writing of Fringe.
"I'm the kind of actor that just thinks, 'You guys do it'," she explained. "[Showrunners] Jeff Pinker and Joel Wyman have a plan for us. They have a plan for eight years and we want to be here for all that time."
Fringe will return to Fox on April 15.
