Eight years after the last episode went on air, Michael Scofield and the Prison Break gang are returning into our lives and on television.
The highly-anticipated return of Prison Break will debut in mid-season 2017 with ten episodes that are set to air on Thursdays at 9 pm on Fox. People are clearly psyched about its return on social media.
Fox, on Tuesday unveiled the trailer for Prison Break’s new season scheduled for 2017. The two-minute trailer reveals Michael, who was thought to be dead may still be alive. This time, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) is set to return the favour by getting his little brother out of a prison overseas.
Known for pain and struggle, the Prison Break season 5 trailer shows Lincoln reunite with Sara, who is living a quiet life with her young son (from her marriage with Michael), upon receiving the information from ex-inmate T-Bag (Robert Knepper) that Michael isn’t dead.
As it stands, there are lots of unanswered questions (mainly surrounding Michael’s alive status) but the series will sure answer them in thrilling form when it returns.
Prison Break began in 2005 and tracked the story of Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) who gets himself imprisoned with the intention of breaking out his innocent brother, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell).
Michael used his engineering expertise to break the wrongfully-incarcerated Lincoln out of prison, and the action escalated from there. The show expanded to include a generally great ensemble, but it lasted for as long as it did thanks to the brotherly dynamic between Miller and Purcell.
The show ran for four seasons before the axe fell. Fox and creator Paul Scheuring cited the show’s Netflix popularity as one of the main reasons to revive the series which Scheuring has branded a “bit of a sequel.”
The Prison Break revival will have its famous characters returning; Sarah Wayne Callies (as Sara Tancredi), Amaury Nolasco (as Fernando Sucre), Robert Knepper (as Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell), Rockmond Dunbar (Benjamin Miles “C-Note” Franklin) and Paul Adelstein (Paul Kellerman).
