The brothers Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) have long been reported to be out of television limbo as FOX confirmed the return of the serial drama “Prison Break” a few months ago for a fifth season.
According to Starpulse, the return of the show after a hiatus of almost half a decade as suggested by showrunner Paul Scheuring; will pass down a “logical and believable explanation” for the younger Scofield who has faked his own death.
Dana Walden and Gary Newman of FOX Network have also kicked around the idea that the first 10 episodes will begin its broadcast for television in March of 2016.
Fans will remember in the series finale that Dr. Sara Tacredi-Scofield (Sarah Wayne Callies) had a reconciliation of sorts at Michael’s grave with Lincoln, Alexander Mahone (William Fitcher) and Fernando Sucre (Amaury Nolasco). After laying flowers on the gravesite Sara who is accompanied by her son walked in the direction to the shore along with the three men. A television movie entitled ”Prison Break: The Final Break” was also aired which took up the incidents involving the collapse of the villanous The Company and Scofield’s sacrifice inorder for Sara to live.
“I would say to those fans that this is the pure vision of the creator of the show and it’s going to take a detour a little bit from where we left off,” Walden was quoted ecstatically in Entertainment Weekly in reference Scheuring’s knack for bringing dead characters back to life.
Also speculated to return is Fox River Eight fan favorite Robert Knepper who played the infamous Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell.
By coincidence, Miller and Purcell are also portraying a pair of fugitives (albeit with super-powers) periodically in The CW’s DC television comic adaptation of “The Flash”. Moviepilot reports that the two will eventually have their own superhero series as they continue donning their costumes; with Miller as Captain Cold and Purcell as Heatwave in “Legends of Tomorrow.”
