The revived FOX series dubbed Prison Break wrapped up its fifth season with a totally outrageous finale that left many very sure that the series were surely done but it looks like it’s not the official case as a brand new season 6 is to be shot soon.
Here’s everything you need to know about Prison Break show’s potential future, following its brief but blissful comeback as confirmed by it’s writers in a tweet.
Is it Happening?
Yes! this very month January 2018, FOX officially confirmed that it was “developing a new iteration” of Prison Break. “It’s in very early stages of development,” said entertainment president Michael Thorn.
With Michael and Sara’s son Mike Jr. (Christian Michael Cooper) now a key part of the series, Miller said: “I feel like there’s more story there and now we’re talking about multiple generations.”Dominic Purcell (Lincoln Burrows) was even more keen, insisting in April 2017 that he’d “do years” of the show, and “would love to do season six”.
Whats the Plot?
The latest season ended with Michael granted full immunity for the crimes he committed while under the thrall of rogue CIA agent Poseidon (Mark Feuerstein), leaving our hero free to play happy families with Sara and Mike Jr.
That said, co-showrunner Vaun Wilmott has confirmed that “ideas are percolating” for a sixth season, so what might the future hold for Michael and the gang, when Prison Break returns?
Interestingly, Scheuring’s original ending for the recent mini-series suggested that Scofield would indeed struggle to settle down. “The idea was Michael comes back and he’s apparently got a normal life, but with that comes a creeping paranoia that things can’t stay good like this.
