FOX has been teasing us about it for 9 months, since last August when they first dropped the news, and back in January when they formally picked it up for a limited event series run, but the trailer for the new Prison Break is here!
Check out the trailer below.
The trailer reveals that Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is not dead, and this time the escape tables have turned, as Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) must now break his brother out of prison in another land. Also starring original stars Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead, Colony), Robert Knepper (in everything – Heroes, The Flash, Texas Rising, iZombie, etc.) as T-Bag, Paul Adelstein (Scandal, Private Practice) as Paul Kellerman, Rockmond Dunbar (The Mentalist, The Game) as C-Note, and Amaury Nolasco (Telenovela, Chase) as Sucre.
Miller and Purcell have been reunited for quite some time now as partners Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold and Mick Rory aka Heatwave in The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on The CW.
The limited event series will run for 8-10 episodes in 2017.
FOX’s press release:
PRISON BREAK is back and ready for its biggest escape yet.
In the thrilling new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, 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. The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, â€œThe Loftâ€), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell, â€œDCâ€™s Legends of Tomorrowâ€), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison. In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies, â€œColony,â€ â€œThe Walking Deadâ€), Michaelâ€™s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the seriesâ€™ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiaryâ€™s most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco, â€œTelenovelaâ€), T-BAG (Knepper, â€œHeroesâ€) and C-NOTE (Dunbar, â€œThe Mentalistâ€), are pulled back into the action. â€œPrison Breakâ€ was an immediate critical and ratings hit when it premiered on FOX in the fall of 2005, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series â€“ Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series â€“ Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.
