prison-break-miniseries

Fans are wondering just how the presumed-dead protagonist managed to fake his death… could we have an answer? Fans of the hit series, that originally aired between 2005 and 2009, will remember Michael was presumed dead at the end of the two-part finale movie, The Final Break. But, as his brother Lincoln Burrows (played by Dominic Purcell) and wife Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) discover in the new limited series, he is in fact alive, well, and back in prison in Yemen. Michael Scofield lives. That much we know, as Wentworth Miller is set to reprise his role in a new Prison Break miniseries. But just how did everyone’s favorite tattooed jailbird fake his own death? Well, the answers may lie in a new behind-the-scenes clip.

'PRISON BREAK': THE ANSWER TO MICHAEL SCOFIELD'S RESURRECTION?

 Dallas, 24 and The X-Files are just some of the classic shows that have been revived in recent years. And while we all eagerly await Twin Peaks, next up is a reunion—ignoring that pseudo-reunion on The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow—for everyone’s favorite jailbird brothers, Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows onPrison Break.

Seven years after the original series wrapped in May 2009, the first trailer for FOX’s revival of the hit show starring Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell is here. Does it answer the question of just how Michael has miraculously come back to life following his apparent death in two-part TV movie The Final Break ? Watch and find out:

After Michael broke Lincoln out of prison in the show’s first season all the way back in 2005, it’s time for Lincoln to repay the favor to Michael in yet another jailbreak. (Surely these two are on some international watchlist by now?) While life has moved on for Lincoln, Michael’s widow Sara Tancredi—played by Sarah Wayne Callies—and the son he never got to know, Lincoln gets a shock when he realizes Michael is still alive and back behind bars in a foreign jail.

Helping free Michael are three of the show’s original inmates from Fox River penitentiary: Michael’s buddy Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) and arguably Prison Break’s best character, T-Bag (Robert Knepper).

FOX announced on Monday the nine-episode miniseries will premiere in January 2017, although an exact date is yet to be announced. The series will be joined by the network’s reboot of 24, titled 24: Legacy, starring Straight Outta Comptonactor Corey Hawkins as a Jack Bauer-like character for a new generation because, let’s be honest, Kiefer Sutherland has had enough bad days to warrant a lifetime of free therapy.

Prison Break was a standout on FOX’s schedule in the 2005-2006 TV season, but, as with most shows that start strongly, it began to wane in writing quality andviewership as the seasons went on. It eventually sputtered to a finish line in 2009 following a fourth season and the aforementioned two-part TV movie.

Viewers recently saw on-screen brothers Miller and Purcell appear together again in superhero dramas The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.

“All is not as it seems,” says Miller of his character’s apparent resurrection and latest imprisonment.

Rockmond Dunbar’s C-Note tells Lincoln: “They have him in here for working with ISIL… trying to take down the government.” Did Michael find himself mixed up in a shadowy conspiracy that led to his presumed death?

Miller previously told TVLine the explanation behind his character’s fate is “cool, unexpected and justified.”

As for the international scale of the new season, Miller says: “Breaking out of prison is just the beginning… we have to break out of the country itself.”

In the new season, airing in January, it is up to Lincoln to break his brother out of prison—just as Michael once did for him.

Returning characters also include Michael’s best friend Sucre, played by Amaury Nolasco, and infamous villain T-Bag, played by Robert Knepper.
