Prison Break is getting ready to return to FOX at some point in the near future, but the revival is dealing with some big challenges.
Two of its stars have landed roles on a new CW series. Both Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell committed to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for at least 16 episodes, and their schedule is making filming FOX’s planned Prison Break revival difficult.
There is one thing that is helping a bit. Warner Bros. Television owns both shows, so there are talking going on behind the scenes. Warner Bros. wants the revival to happen, but it does not want to kill DC’S Legends of Tomorrow either.
According to TV Line, Miller said the following about the situation at the Winter TCA’s:
“There are a lot of moving parts to that conversation, but we are hopeful that we’ll be able to shoot something this spring. Prison Break is taking its cue from Legends, which is the priority. So we’re aiming for spring.”
