Storms, they can come back, can’t they? The Prison Break TV show revival on FOX, starring Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, and Sarah Wayne Callies is a limited “event” series, topping off with nine episodes. A sixth and future seasons of Prison Break could be possible though, according to the verified Twitter account of the Prison Break writers room. Check out the tweets, after the jump.
The original team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein, and Dawn Olmstead are executive producing the Prison Break revival. Scheuring is serving as showrunner/writer.
When a fan asked if there could be more episodes, the Prison Break writers room account responded, “For this season, 9 is the final number, but we’ve packed a lot of awesome in those 9 eps.”

A fan then asked if there would be room for a sixth season, saying, “@PBWritersRoom You said earlier that you know how the season ends. Will there be room for a season 6 should we rock the Nielsen ratings?”
