The show picks up seven years after the events of the TV special "Prison Break: The Final Break". One day T-Bag shows up on Lincoln's porch with a dossier on Michael, which includes a photo of him in a prison in the Middle East. Lincoln soon learns that Michael is in fact still alive, but he's in Yemen, where ISIS has caused a civil war among the populace. To save his brother, Lincoln enlists the help of C-Note and Sucre and they embark on a rescue mission to break Michael out of Ogygia Prison. The only problem is that breaking out of the prison is just the first step, they'll have to escape the wrath of ISIS and escape Yemen itself to survive.

I'm honestly mixed on this revival they're doing. On the one hand, I loved the hell out of the first two seasons of the show, and am thrilled that Scheuring (the guy who was head of production on the first two seasons) is being given the reins. On the other hand, the last season of the show, along with the TV special, were definitely not up to par with what fans had come to expect after the first seasons. As a result, the ending to the series felt rushed and forced and didn't exactly leave any wiggle room for there to be any continuation of the story, so a lot of sh*t is probably going to be retconned. I have faith in Scheuring though, so I'm cautiously optimistic.
