Good news for fans of the J.J Abrams/Alex Kurtzman/Roberto Orci drama “Fringe”: Fox has picked the show up for a third season.

“Fringe” was expected to score a pickup; this now makes it official. Show hasn’t been a huge hit, but paired with “Bones,” “Fringe” has at least helped give Fox a solid Thursday night lineup this season.

“Fringe” has been on hiatus, as the net tested “Past Life” — and quickly pulled the plug — on Thursdays. More recently, a mix of special “American Idol” and “Kitchen Nightmares” episodes have aired on the night. “Bones” and “Fringe” repeats return on March 18, with new episodes starting April 1.

Thriller centers on a group that investigates unusual events throughout the world linked via something called “The Pattern.”

Show stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Kirk Acevedo, Blair Brown and Jasika Nicole.

Abrams, Kurtzman and Orci created the show; EPs include Abrams, Bryan Burk, Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman.

Warner Bros. TV is the studio.
