Rumours have circulated on and off since the prison break out drama Prison Break went off the year in 2009, but Fox have confirmed that it will return in 2016!
The very well-regarded series which featured brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows (played by Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell) on the run after Michael, an extremely intelligent structural engineer who breaks his brother out of death row in Fox River State Penitentiary via an intricate tattoo design. Well, Fox have ordered a 10 episode mini-series which will feature the return of the Captain Cold & Heatwave actors!
“I would describe it as a bit of a sequel. It picks up the characters several years after we left them in the last season of the show. The brothers will be back. Some of the iconic characters from that show will be back.”
Is how Fox’s Dana Walden described the show as it was announced today. While Prison Break itself will be exciting to see return to our screens, even more exciting will be the return of Miller & Purcell. The pair whose on-screen chemistry in Prison Break the first time round was one of many highlights of the show the first time round, and after their performances in The Flash as villainous pair Captain Cold & Heatwave, it’s safe to say the pair are a perfect match. The CW have even signed them on for recurring roles in Legends of Tomorrow which is due to air in January.
We can’t wait to see what Fox have planned for the Prison Break revival and are very excited to see what happens!
