Prison Break, one of the most popular TV shows in history, is returning with a new season next spring.
Millions of fans were in tears when Prison Break ended in 2009. The award winning series first ran in 2005, and caught huge popularity as people were captivated by the story of Michael Scofield, who commits a crime just to enter prison and help his framed brother Lincoln Burrows escape.
After four seasons, it was unclear if the show would ever return. But now it has been confirmed, filmed, and almost ready for broadcast.
20th Century Fox Television has announced that a sequel miniseries will continue the Prison Break saga, sometime in Spring 2017.
The new episode starts after Michael’s alleged death, leaving his wife and son behind with his memory. But when rumors and clues emerge, hinting that Michael is still alive and imprisoned overseas, Sara and Lincoln design a scheme to break him out and get him back home. The plan, of course, includes Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag, C-Note and Sucre.
Most of the main cast are returning to play their original characters, like Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, alongside Amaury Nolasco, Paul Adelstein, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Sarah Wayne Callies.
Filming started back in April, and is still ongoing in various locations, including Vancouver and the Moroccan cities of Rabat, Casablanca, Ouarzazate and Rabat.
As we could tell from the trailer, Michael is imprisoned in an Arab country, most likely Morocco, with some hints of the involvement of a terrorist organization.
We know the wait will kill you harder than season 4 ending, so let’s hope it will be worth it.
