The executive producers of Fringe have revealed that a key character will be killed off in a forthcoming episode.

In a recent conference call, showrunner Jeff Pinkner claimed that "somebody who [fans of the show] love deeply will die".

"Fringe always does things the way you don't expect," added co-producer Joel Wyman. "It's going to be effective, and it will be self-explanatory. That's sort of all we can say without spoiling anything."

Pinkner also suggested that the events of the third season finale will be "wholly unexpected".

"It will recontextualise the story of season three in a really cool way, and be fun and entertaining and mind-blowing," he claimed.

However, Pinkner ruled out the possibility of introducing a third universe to the sci-fi drama, which currently focuses on events in two parallel worlds.

"We are not introducing a third world," he insisted. "We still have plenty of story to tell just in those two worlds. Maybe at some point in the future there will be a third world, but not yet."

Fringe returns to Fox tonight at 9/8c. The season finale will air on May 6.
