Bringing back long dead TV shows and rebooting movies for the small screen is all the rage these days, hence why Prison Break is coming back. Reuniting Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell as Michael and Lincoln, this time it will be the latter who orchestrates the breakout as he discovers that his brother is still alive and for some reason back behind bars.
In the upcoming event series, other original stars Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure “spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on Fox from 2005 – 2009.”
For more, check out the official plot summary below:
“When clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive, Lincoln and Sara reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre, T-Bag, and C-Note are pulled back into the action.”
While the first trailer might spell out a bit too much of the plot, fans will no doubt be happy to see their favorite characters reunited again. And besides, we all know that there are still plenty of surprises and twists in store for us. After all, this is Prison Break we’re talking about.
