Look, we liked Prison Break… we did, honest. The first two or three seasons were a lot of fun, but surely there’s only so far you can run with a series called, you know, Prison Break?
Yes, we’ve been reporting on it a while but now we have confirmation that the new season has been ordered to a full series at FOX.
Not surprisingly, given that they were the stars before, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are both back (hey, we love them as Captain Cold and Heatwave in The Flash, so this better not interfere!) as brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows. We’re also hearing Sarah Wayne Callies and Robert Knepper will be back as Sara and T-Bag.
The series is set to film in Spring with either nine or ten episodes in the new season.
“The story unravels on an international landscape — it’s not a domestic. We open on a very international contemporary-feeling story.” said Fox co-chariman/CEO Dana Walden.
The series is confirmed to take place AFTER all the previous seasons, specials etc, which isn’t what anyone expected – if you watched it, you’ll know why.
Glad to see Prison Break back? Let us know…
