It has been an exciting week for “Prison Break” fans. After the final premiere date was dropped by Fox yesterday, the much awaited first trailer of the fifth season of “Prison Break” has been released too.
The trailer shows that the series is gearing up for its best-ever season as this time protagonist Michael Scofield, played by Wentworth Miller, will be shown imprisoned in a middle-eastern jail. Interestingly, his brother Lincoln Burrows, played by Dominic Purcell, will take the charge of rescuing his brother from prison. However, Burrows will copy Scofield when it comes to rescuing his brother from the prison.
The teaser gives a glimpse of most of the leading characters of the show – including Mike Scofield (Scofield’s son), Sara Tancredi, C-Note, T-Bag, Scofield, and Burrows.
The mini-series, comprising of 10 new episodes, is set to come back in 2017 with its fifth season and will feature most of its original star cast, including Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Robert Knepper, Paul Adelstein and Rockmond Dunbar. Additionally, Prison Break’s creator Paul Scheuring also returned as writer-showrunner. The show is currently being filmed in Vancouver along with the Moroccan cities of Rabat, Casablanca, and Ouarzazate, according to a report by NME.
The much-anticipated revival of the series and Fox co-chairman Dana Walden revealed that revival will be more like a sequel as it was announced that the show will pick-up the characters after a gap of nearly 5 years exactly from the point where they were left in the last season of the show.
“What [Paul] 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,” Walden said back then.
