He spoke about the differences between the revival and the original series in a recent interview. He said the following, according to Digital Spy:
“I think this version is more worldly, it’s heavy shit,” Purcell said. “The first season was heavy, but this is real heavy shit, because we’re dealing with ISIS, we’re dealing with ISIL. And on top of that as the background, I’m trying to get my brother out of a Yemen prison – one of the worst prisons in the world. So you have all that going on – it’s on another level. With 8 years since the last time we were in front of a Prison Break camera, a lot happens in between,” he said. “So our life experiences are going to affect our choices as actors. I think what you’ll notice is a lot more of a grounded feeling.”
