Fox had a hit on its hands when it revived THE X-FILES earlier this year and now the network is looking to duplicate that success with another revival event series: the return of PRISON BREAK.
The original PRISON BREAK may have ended with the death of Michael Scofield, but star Wentworth Miller will be very much involved in the revival. In fact, the new PRISON BREAK centers around the discovery that Michael may actually be alive. Armed with hope, Lincoln and Sara team up to help engineer the show’s biggest prison escape ever. And three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre, T-Bag and C-Note, are also pulled back into action.
The cast includes Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield, Dominic Purcell as Lincoln Burrows, Sarah Wayne Callies as Sara Tancredi, Amaury Nolasco as Sucre, Robert Knepper as T-Bag, Rockmond Dunbar as C-Note, Mark Feuerstein as Jacob Anton Ness, Augustus Prew as Whip, Rick Yune as Ja, Inbar Lavi as Sheba and Paul Adelstein as Paul Kellerman. Paul T. Scheuring (the original PRISON BREAK), Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein, Dawn Olmstead, Vaun Wilmott and Michael Horowitz will serve as executive producers.
PRISON BREAK will air midseason on Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox (see Fox’s full fall and midseason schedule).
