Fox Is Officially Bringing Back Prison Break!

Stars Sarah Wayne Callies and Robert Knepper are in talks to return for the reboot as Sara Tancredi and T-Bag respectively.

Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are set to be reprising their roles as the incarcerated brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows.

The two actors are co-starring in another series of Legends of Tomorrow and their availability for Prison Break would be dependent on their scheduling commitments to the superhero show, according to TV Line.

Actress Sarah, 38, also said in a recent interview that she was “trying to make it work”, referring to signing up to the Prison Break revival.

“They’re trying to make it work, I’m trying to make it work – it’s a bit of Tetris with everyone’s schedules because we all have other jobs,” she told Digital Spy.

US broadcaster confirmed back in August last year that the show would be returning with CEO Gary Newman saying: “It’s going to bring back both brothers, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.”

“I would describe it as a bit of a sequel. It picks up the characters several years after we left them in the last season of the show,” explained co-chairman Dana Walden.

The new story has been written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring.

Despite the fact that Michael died at the end of the series, the plot will give a “logical and believable” explanation for how the characters survived and are “still moving around the world”.

While composer Ramin Djawadi told that he would “absolutely” return to the series to work on the music.

It was originally thought that the new limited run season would be comprised of 10 episodes but it is now uncertain how many instalments there will be.
