Sunday morning, the cast of Fringe appeared at their final Comic-Con panel. The hour was filled with excitement and emotion as fans prepared to say goodbye. But before they bid adieu, the cast gave us some much-needed hope. Could a Fringe movie be on the horizon?

A brave fan asked the cast whether Fringe would continue in another format (i.e., a comic or an animated series). John Noble stepped in and gave an answer that left the crowd reeling. "I think anything is possible ... I would think a film is very possible."

From there, Joshua Jackson interjected with some humor, saying, "But unfortunately it would be shot on this [picks up a flipcam] by us." The audience laughed, but deep down they were really excited about the prospect of a movie.

As for the last 13 episodes of the final season, writer and producer J.H. Wyman revealed that he just figured out how the show will end a few months ago.

"I had ideas since season one," said Wyman. "But those change.Truthfully, I have two and a half versions of what I kind of thought we should do for the end. And I sort of decided maybe three months ago. I knew this was the way ... and that's what you're going to get."

Once again, Jackson added a quip: "Whether you like it or not!"

They also revealed a special trailer that featured footage that the actors shot specifically for Comic-Con. Season five hasn't begun production, so the majority of the scenes were given to them out of context. You can watch it below.

Fringe returns Sept. 28.
