The hit series Prison Break may be finally getting bailed out of television purgatory courtesy of Fox. Fox has been confirmed to be developing a limited series revival of it’s hit 2005-09 drama series that would see the re-union of stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.
A majority of the details on the project are very sketchy and are still very much up in the air at this point. However, if the Prison Break reunion does happen then it will be running in a similar style to that of last year’s 24: Live Another Day in that it would air a few dozen episodes and feature a close-ended storyline
Earlier this year, Miller would reunite with co-star Dominic Purcell on CW’s The Flash as Leonard Snart (Captain Cold) and Mick Rory (Heat Wave) and he would exclusively tell E! News reporters that he had “floated the idea” of a Prison Break continuation to Fox and “they seemed to think there was something there.” Fox co-chairman Gary Newman acknowledged at the Television Critics Assoc. press tour in January that Prison Break would make “the perfect event series,” but added that there were no current plans to bring the Fox River gang back together at this time.
In the meantime, Miller and Purcell are at least set to reunite on the new CW/DC television series Legends of Tomorrow set to air midseason (January 2016) as well as crossing over as villains on the other DC television series, The Flash and Arrow.
