Good news: Michael Scofield is alive! Bad news: He's back in prison -- in the middle east, no less.
Check out a new trailer for FOX's upcoming "Prison Break" revival (Season 5), which continues the incarcerated adventures of brothers Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell). Only this time, the tables have turned -- Lincoln is now the one who has to break his brother out of prison.
After learning Michael is not dead, but living behind bars in a middle-eastern jail, Lincoln recruits his old prison buddies -- Sucre (Amaury Nolasco) and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) -- to pull off another elaborate prison break. Wayne Callies (as Dr. Sara Tancredi) and Robert Knepper (as T-Bag) also return for the 9-part limited series, which sees TV helmer and former "Prison Break" director Nelson McCormick directing the opening episode.
Written and executive produced by the show's creator Paul T. Scheuring, "Prison Break" is set to return on Tuesday, April 4 on Fox.
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), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell), 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), Michael's wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series' biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary's most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco), T-BAG (Knepper) and C-NOTE (Dunbar), are pulled back into the action.
