Season Five Ratings
In 2009, FOX cancelled its Prison Break TV show after four seasons. Now the network is bringing back the crime drama thriller as a “limited event” series. While an ending has been crafted for the fifth season of Prison Break, the writers have said if this installment is a ratings success, there could be future seasons. With declining ratings, another round is looking more and more like a long-shot. Subscribe for free alerts about any Prison Break cancellation and renewal news.
