After five seasons and 100 episodes, the cult hit reaches its conclusion in the New Year.

Exec producer JH Wyman teased: "It's definitely the biggest season finale we've ever had. It's the most expensive... It's massive, really big.

"I wanted to go out like, 'Wow, how did they do that?'"

The finale, titled 'An Enemy of Fate', will air as a two-hour special, the latter hour serving as the show's 100th episode.

Fringe's finale will also be repeated in its usual UK timeslot on Wednesday, January 23 at 10pm.

The series, which stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson and John Noble, was voted the 18th best show of 2012 by Digital Spy's writers.

Sky1 did a similar simulcast for the last ever episode of Lost.

Sky's controller of acquisitions Sarah Wright said: "Fringe has a great, dedicated fanbase amongst our customers and we are thrilled to be able to show them the much-anticipated series finale at the same time as the US broadcast."
