Whether or not FOX ever gets The X-Files back for another case, Michael Scofield and the Prison Break crew are raring to go in their own revival this spring. A brand-new trailer reveals both Michael’s return from the grave and our new setting, while FOX finally sets an official premiere.
As revealed at the ongoing TCA press tour, FOX’s Prison Break revival will debut the first of its nine episodes (down from ten, for scheduling) on Tuesday, April 4 at 9:00 P.M. The new trailer also gives us a hint about Michael (Wentworth Miller)’s return, considering the character seemingly died when last FOX closed out Prison Break’s run. Also, T-Bag’s robot hand!
In the drama’s new chapter, when clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive, Lincoln and Sara reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag, C-Note and Sucre, are pulled back into the action.
Set partially in Yemen, and based on The Odyssey, the new series will include among its prison-breaking cast Mark Feurestein, Augustus Prew, Rick Yune and Steve Mouzakis. On the creative side, the revival will return original Prison Break creator and producing team Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, Scheuring serving as showrunner and writer.
