The news had gained ground in recent months as a mere rumor – surrounded by a lot of doubts – but now it's official: Prison Break will be back in 2016 in the form of the miniseries.
As reported by TV Line, the announcement came at the summer TCA tour, where the Chairman and CEO of FOX, Gary Newman, confirmed that its network has ordered the miniseries event that will feature both brothers screens Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows. Doubts about the return of the character played by Wentworth Miller, given up for dead in Series Finale, are immediately swept away by the co-Chairman and CEO Dana Walden, with reference to the plot devised by creator and executive producer of Prison Break, Paul Scheuring, says "What he pitched to us was a very logical and believable – in the world of Prison Break – explanation for why our characters are alive and still moving around the world ".
In addition to Michael and Lincoln also will meet other iconic characters from the show, back together for 10 episodi that will represent a kind of sequel, set several years after the events of the Series Finale. According to Walden "I don't think Paul [Scheuring] knows exactly where he's going over the 10-episode arc, but it definitely will address some questions that were set up at the end of the series for a new audience "; Although with a little detour from where we left off "it should feel very satisfying and event-ized". I admit that the term "detour" makes me a little suspicious, but the enthusiasm for the return of Prison Break beyond delay; I loved this show and shipper of Michael and Sara I accepted without hesitation the explanation behind the "resurrection" of the character of Sarah Wayne Callies, so I'm ready to do anything to review Michael&Co. When Walden supports "Fans will be excited about seeing these characters back together again" is quite right.
