FOX is heading back to jail with a continuation of their Prison Break TV series. Original stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will return, as will other actors from the original 2005-09 series. Chairman of the Fox Television Group, Gary Newman, hinted that iconic characters would be returning but didn’t name names.
Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring is currently writing the first episode and series bible. Once he’s done, Newman indicated it would get a straight-to-series order.
Chairman Dana Walden said, “It picks up the characters several years after we left them in the last season of the show… I don’t think Paul knows exactly where he’s going with the 10-episode arc, but it definitely will address some questions that were set up at the end of the series.”
One issue would have to be figuring out how Michael (Miller) cheated death in the last episodes.
What do you think? Does this sound like a good idea? Will you watch the Prison Break event series?
