Prison Break revival gets the green light from Fox.
The show's original creator Paul Scheuring and stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell have signed on to return, Fox executives said during Thursday's Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, according to TheWrap.
“Prison Break” starred Wentworth Miller and centered on Michael Scofield (Miller), who commits a crime in order to get sent to prison and be close to his wrongfully accused brother, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell). Michael plans to help his brother escape.
The show ran from 2005 to 2009 and ratings had declined by the program’s final season. The sequel will continue after Season 4 for a 10-episode run on Fox will totally disregard the straight-to-video movie that killed off Miller's character, Michael Scofield.
FOX’s CEO Gary Newman said, "Paul Scheuring came in and pitched a great story to bring the show back. It’s going to bring back both brothers – Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell. Paul's busy writing the first episode and a [series] bible."
