Netflix subscribers enjoying the fact Fringe Season 5 was available to stream this week, may have been equally shocked to see it suddenly disappear in front of their eyes – rather like a storyline from the show itself.
Apparently, the streaming company moved to pull the sci-fi series’ fifth and final season from its library because it was pushed out before the agreement with the show’s studio Warner Bros. had kicked in.
Netflix currently streams the first four seasons of Fringe.
Update: Thanks to Seriable commenter Rentadanny who shared the following response from Netflix, which states Season 5 was released early in “error” and will be available again on September 12:
“Recently, we sent you an email message announcing the arrival of Season 5 of Fringe on Netflix. Season 5 will be available on September 12th. Please accept our sincere apology for the error.”
