Purcell plays Lincoln Burrows on the action drama. The cast also includes Wentworth Millers and Sarah Wayne Callies.
Last week, the actor posted photos of his bandaged and bloody face on Instagram, saying he broke his nose while shooting in Morocco:

Pays to have a thick skull when an iron bar falls on your #head!! busting it open severely also broke my nose in two places. Haha. I got a free nose job out of it…… Stoked to be alive. All good. #chill. Oh. I didn't get knocked out took a knee. Ha!! Doc said I have an unusually tough tissue fiber that's what saved me apparently. Thank god for my #Viking heritage hahaha !!!!
Purcell’s injuries won’t delay production however. The Prison Break revival is still slated to premiere in early 2017.
Our friend and colleague Dominic Purcell was injured earlier this week during the filming of our event series Prison Break, and was flown to a medical facility where he received treatment. We are happy to report that he is in great spirits and is expected to make a full recovery. He wanted us to express his appreciation to the fans around the world who have expressed their concern and support, and to reassure them that he will be back at work very soon.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Prison Break? Will you watch the revival?
