CRIME thriller Prison Break is returning for a ten episode revival following a recent popularity spurt.
Thanks to Netflix, the show has grown its already large pack of adoring fans, causing Fox Officials to relaunch the TV favourite.
In the original show Michael Scofield (played by Wentworth Miller) commits a crime, ensuring a prison sentence in the same institution as his brother Lincoln (played by Dominic Purcell) who is wrongfully waiting to die on death row. The brothers hatch a plan to escape and the story spirals from there.
CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman are keeping details regarding the new direction of the show vague.
Dana summarised: “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. It definitely will address some questions that were set up at the end of the series and for a new audience.”
Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will be returning for the revival despite the fact that Wentworth’s character Michael died at the end of Prison Break, leaving fans sceptical as to whether the writers can believably bring back the beloved protagonist.
Gary Newman reassured concerned fans: “What [was] pitched to us was a very logical and believable explanation in the world of Prison Break for why are character’s alive and still moving around the world.”
Although the revival is only in the development stage, it’s hoped good old Michael Scofield will be on our screens by 2016.
