The series has been described as a hybrid of fantasy, [[procedural drama]]s and [[Serial (radio and television)|serials]], influenced by films like ''[[Altered States]]'' and television shows such as ''[[Lost (TV series)|Lost]]'', ''[[The X-Files]]'' and ''[[The Twilight Zone (1959 TV series)|The Twilight Zone]]''. The series began as a traditional [[Villain of the week|mystery-of-the-week]] series and became more serialized in later seasons. Most episodes contain a standalone plot, with several others also exploring the series' overarching [[Mythology of Fringe|mythology]].

Critical reception was at first lukewarm but became more favorable after the first season, when the series began to explore its mythology, including parallel universes and [[Alternate history|alternate timelines]]. The show, along with cast and crew, were nominated for many major awards. Despite its move to the "[[Friday night death slot]]" and low [[Nielsen ratings|ratings]], the series developed a [[cult following]]. It also spawned two six-part [[comic book]] series, an [[alternate reality game]], and three novels.
