Prison Break: Petition to Continue the Cancelled TV Show

Prison BreakFOX’s president, Kevin Reilly, has announced that Prison Break is ending after four seasons on the air. The drama once attracted over 10 million viewers each week but the ratings have fallen to an average of 6.1 million. That’s a lot of people but fewer than the network wants to keep a show on the air.

It looks like the producers will be allowed to finish off the series but, with all of the many ongoing storylines, it seems highly unlikely that all of viewers’ questions will be answered. And what about being able to see the characters’ lives afterwards?

Would you like to see Prison Break continue — either for additional episodes or for a follow-up TV movie? Millions still watch the show every week and care about what happens to the characters.

If you’d like to see Prison Break continue in some form, there are a few things you can do:

Tell your friends and family members to tune in and watch the show on FOX. If that’s not possible, encourage them to watch online. Maybe one of them is secretly a “Nielsen family” or knows one.

Write to FOX and let the network know how you feel. Remember to keep it civil. Everyone responds best to courtesy.

Sign the petition below and let the network execs know that you’ve signed it. Spread the word and ask others to do the same. You can even tell your favorite falsely-accused felon.

To: 20th Century Fox Television, Adelstein-Parouse Productions, Original Film, and FOX

We, the undersigned, consistently watch and enjoy Prison Break on FOX. This TV show has been an action-packed thrill ride, right from the very first episode. Though the story may have had a few missteps, we don’t want to see it end just yet.

We are truly upset to hear that it has been decided to end this show. Please consider continuing Prison Break in some way — either for more episodes or for follow-up TV movies. There are so many interesting characters and intriguing storylines that we don’t want to see the story end. We are just a few of this show’s millions and millions of fans who look forward to watching every week.

Thank you for your consideration.

    By accident I came across Prison Break on Netflix recently, and I must admit that I have been riveted to each episode, as I've viewed two seasons in a little over a week's time. This is an excellent series and I look forward to watching all the remaining seasons, and of course, hope that the series will continue on television in the near future.

    my name is Steven. I'm 18 and prison break was my life, I was happy when it ended and enjoyed the seasons leading up to the finale. Thier has never ever been anything like prison break ever and this is why people need prison break back... Michael should of never died and The company save him ...

    Hi I'm both mad and sad to hear that this show has ended. It's a really great show and I don't want to see it end. I know the number of people that watch it now are getting lower but I don't understand why. The ending was too shocking to let it go now. Their needs to be a season 5 and make it happier to where they all end up together. I hope you read this and reconsider to try to keep this show going

    This is completely the best thing i have ever seen on tele. We watched this on netflix and was so obsessed with watching it at every spare minute we had. So So gutted that it has now ended, I could watch this for the rest of my life and never be bored. It was the most brilliantly written series and with the most perfect actors. Of course Michael and Linc taking centre stage!!! Please please bring it back!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing else will ever come remotely close again to this perfection of Prison Break

    This was a very disappointing ending for fans. I recognize that tragedies bring higher ratings but you must understand that this really only applies for two hour movies. People dedicate a lot of time into watching the show and make connections with the main characters. Bring back Michael or this show will be useless. The reason season 4 had lower rates was because the writers of this show kept playing the betrayal card over and over and over again and it just got old and to be honest predictable. It is always interesting to see how Michael gets himself out of a situation but there could have been more drama. It would have been nice to see T-Bag redeem himself or something. This was a great series but without Michael, Sara, and Link this show won't work. Good luck and I hope to see new episodes some day.

    Please consider bringing the show back to give us views a satisfying end and closure to the show. The ending is sad; MIcheal suffers so much to help his brother and those he cared about only to have a bad ending and not being part of what he wanted. The story line can be changed just as when Sara was said to have been killed. Say; micheal faked his death to protect those he loved because of threats from the generals daughter to kill all those that he cared about. He fakes his death so that he doesn't have to bare the pain of losing Sara . If he is dead then the general has no other reason to go after any of them because it's micheal that he's after a revenge with. He fakes his death , contacts paul kellerman for help, gets surgery for his tumour, goes into hiding for four years and comes back when things have settled down!

  • Lee crossleyCountry: England2014-09-25 14:05:19
    Please continue prison break, it's one of the best shows fox have produced, it didn't feel finished, I feel as though there's still more to give. Cheers.

    Please bring prison break back. Even at the very least make a movie following up on their lives now and bring Michael back. A movie would make millions. Can you not see that? Look at how many people love the show! Give the people what they want. Prison Break was the best show on t.v.
  • TomCountry: UK2014-09-20 09:49:26
    Plz bring back this great series. I have loved watching them and is the only great programme I watch. Thanks
  • Laura RedmondCountry: United Kingdom2014-09-20 09:05:26
    There is no show that can compete with prison break! I cant find any show that has a great couple like Michael and Sara, or has a great a plot like prison break! There are so many ways that they can bring Michael back!!! Wentworth Milller is a great actor and I just really want to see him back!! I am so emotionally invested in this show..... I miss it so much! Please, let there be something!!
  • KirstyCountry: Uk2014-09-19 02:57:54
    Emotional wreck! Please make a come back
  • Noah TCountry: United States2014-09-17 08:03:03
    Whoever reading this please continue ~ As I have watched the first 4 seasons there is still more to learn. Just Because Michael " died " don't mean the show has to end. How do we know for sure that Michael died? He could still be alive and he could have still escaped and met up with them again. And we still have T-Bag, Gretchen, General, Sucre, Kellerman, Lincoln, Sara, and soon michaels son. Michaels son could grow up and learn about his dad and then maybe michael lived and is in jail and his son breaks him out or Lincoln could return the favor. I just can't see it end here! There is so much more to find out and nobody is truly free yet. Please take I to consideration the millions of devoted viewers looking to watch a season5! Have a blessed day!
