In the thrilling new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on FOX from 2005-2009. The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, “The Loft”), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison. In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies, “Colony,” “The Walking Dead”), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco, “Telenovela”), T-BAG (Knepper, “Heroes”) and C-NOTE (Dunbar, “The Mentalist”), are pulled back into the action. “Prison Break” was an immediate critical and ratings hit when it premiered on FOX in the fall of 2005, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.
Yes, this is really happening. A new Prison Break season.
The first two seasons of Prison Break were one of the best things I’ve ever seen on a TV series. It was my favorite show for a long time. All of that adrenaline and excitement of the breakout of the Fox River Penitentiary, I have never seen something so good. Then Sona and The Company happened and it was a little disappointing, considering the standard of the previous seasons. I’m not gonna lie, it was still good because it kept me watching until the end, but it was not as great.
About the trailer: It was nice to see a lot of familiar faces 7 years later. The first thing I thought when I watched it was “It shows everything, we almost don’t need to watch it!”. There is a lot going on in a 2 minutes trailer, and we get to know the following: T-Bag is out of Fox River again, Michael Scofield is now alive, in the Middle East, locked up for something we still don’t know. C-Note and Lincoln reunite to get Scofield out of prison, again.
Since the producers decided to kill the main character at the end, they better come up with a good explanation as to why Michael Scofield is suddenly alive. I mean, that makes no sense! I would also like to see how T-Bag ended up getting out of prison, since he was the most serious criminal of the Fox River Eight. We didn’t get to see Sucre, but we know he will be there to help his best friend. Bellick will be missed, though.
In my honest opinion, we didn’t really need a new Prison Break season. Why take something good and risk making it bad? It’s almost the same with Grey’s Anatomy and Pirates of the Caribbean. At first it’s all great because it’s something new, but then they start delivering the same thing over and over and we all get tired of never seeing something new. I mean, 3 breakouts in 5 seasons? More tattoos? It was great the first time, now they are just playing safe. Well, I’ll just watch it out of curiosity because I’m sure they can’t do anything better than the first two seasons.
What about you? Are you excited for the new season of Prison Break? What did you think about the trailer?
