Prison Break fans, there's really no easy way to say this so we'll just take a very direct approach: Prison Break is coming to an end...soon; Fox today announced the series will be ending at the conclusion of this season.
Fox has picked up the action drama Prison Break for a third season.
Details on the serialized drama's storyline for next season are being kept under wraps, but it is understood that brothers Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell)--who recently escaped to Panama with the FBI hot on their trail--and many of their fellow fugitives would end up back behind bars, possibly in Panama.
"It essentially will be a new chapter," creator/executive producer Paul Scheuring said. "It's going to return to the fundamental conceit, to the roots of what the show was about."
In its first season, Break featured most characters locked in prison and planning an escape. The current second season chronicles the manhunt that ensued after the core group broke out.
"They got scattered in the winds--their stories became separate and defused," Scheuring said. "They will come back together again, [and] their conflicts ...Read more
Prison Break is officially back from the dead at Fox. And so is Michael Scofield, because Wentworth Miller is on board to reprise his role as the dude with the full-body tattoo despite the fact his character apparently died in the straight-to-video film Prison Break: The Final Break that was released in 2009 following the end of the series. According to Fox Television Group Chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman, the new 10-episode limited series, which was first reported in June and is being described as a sequel to the original series, will not completely ignore the events of the film.
"I don't think [executive producer Paul Scheuring] is going to completely ignore what happened in [the movie]," Walden told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "What he pitched to us was a very logical and believable—in the world of Prison Break ...Read more
Well, Prison Break fans, I have some good news and some bad news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, cast and production members from Prison Break have been told by Fox that they may be filming an additional two episodes this season (yay!), but it may come with a huge catch.
Caged Heat fans, get ready to riot... in a good way!
Fox is taking a page out of ABC's book by developing a spin-off of one its popular shows and making a woman its central character. However, it won't feature a doctor jaunting down to Southern California for romance and good times, like Grey's Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. No, no...quite the opposite.
The network has ordered a script for a drama splintering off of Prison Break, but instead of hunky shaved-headed men, this one is all about the ladies.
The show, tentatively (and somewhat provocatively) titled Prison Break: Cherry Hill, will focus on Molly, a female character that will be introduced on Prison Break later this season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Her character is described as "an upper-middle-class wife" who seeks revenge against the Company at the Panamanian prison where the current season of Prison ...Read more
[UPDATE--March 25] Fox made it official today: Prison Break is coming back for a fourth season. The network also confirmed that production will move from Dallas to Los Angeles. Original story follows.
For a show that was once primed to be a short-lived miniseries, Prison Break sure is exceeding its life expectancy. The Fox drama wrapped up its third season earlier this year, and fans of the show have been eagerly awaiting word on a fourth-season pickup.
Fans will still have to wait for official word on a fourth-season pickup, but for those who only need unofficial word, news over the weekend was great. On his MySpace blog, Prison Break executive producer Nick Santora dished this bit of info: Season four has been picked up.
Santora also confirmed the Prison Break crew's move from the Dallas, Texas area to its new digs in Los Angeles. Though Santora notes his ...Read more
