Fringe might be on its way out, but it’s leaving with a bang.

The series, co-created by J.J. Abrams, will end its five-season run with a two-hour finale on Jan. 18 starting at 8 p.m., Fox said Friday. The finale, which will also mark the series’ 100th episode, will bring the series to “a climactic conclusion,” the network said.

“It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of ’Fringe,’ Abrams said in a statement. ”I will always owe the cast and crew for pouring their hearts and souls into every dimension of this series. Creating the show with Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman was a joy, but watching it evolve over the years into such an imaginative, insane and heartbreaking ride is nothing less than a thrill.“

The supernatural series, which stars Joshua Jackson, was a fan favorite, but has suffered in the ratings, and was renewed for a fifth and final season of 13 episodes in April.
