Synopsis


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.

Yeah, the original should strictly have been a two season series. The third was alright but you could sense that it was created only to milk the series further.

 

I don't know how I feel about this revival though. Michael freeing his brother and passing away gave the series a proper closure. I have no idea how they plan on bringing Michael back from the dead.

Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar, and Amaury Nolasco have all been confirmed as returning cast members! Can't wait to see T-Bag again!

I think this show could have been more popular if it was aired a little later than it originally was. Not to say that it wasnt popular back then, but still. I feel like TV shows back then werent so mainstream as they are now.

 

I dunno about a revival. Just have to see how it is. But I feel like the story is over. Its also been so long since I watched it that I barley remember the plot and the details anymore.

I've got a feeling that they are retconning the last season as if it didn't exist, or something happened when Michael was alone saving everyone else during the electrocution scene. They need to at least come up with something special.

 

I've got to say though, this was the best show I've ever seen, and will probably ever see in the world. It was just sensational. Most of the characters were literally out of this world, especially T-Bag and Michael. On one hand, I'm f*cking ecstatic for this, on the other I am sceptical.

They've just confirmed that Paul Adelstein is returning for the mini-series. Kellerman is back baby! All we need now is Mahone, so hopefully they can lasso-in William Fichtner.

It would also seem that actual production begins in just two weeks.

I dunno man, season 2 was also really good. I see Seasons 1 and 2 as one story arch. They go together so well. I know a lot of people don't like season 2, but I don't understand what exactly they were expecting. They could only take it one direction which was to have all eight of them on the run. I also really enjoyed the subplot about the money and how most of them were rushing to Utah to claim it for themselves. It was also really nice to see Michael having an internal conflict about whether or not he should have orchestrated the escape in the first place at various points throughout the season.

Yeah, there have been a lot of really cool behind the scenes shots by some of the actors already.

From what they've been teasing thus far, they're making it sound like this revival is going to be more thematically similar to seasons 1 and 2, which is a very good thing. I'm getting more excited for this every day.

I don't think there's ever been a TV show where milking was more obvious than in Prison Break. The premise was in the damn title. Once you're done with that part you don't have much to work with without resorting to making up excuses to stay on the air for another season or two. And sadly that's exactly what they did.

Holy sh*t, I didn't even realize a trailer was out. At least they're in a prison again, though I can't wait for them to try and explain how Michael is still breathing.

 

I guess it's at least a step in the right direction in the sense that they're back in prison again. Honestly, the best case scenario I can see for this revival is a repeat of season 3, which wasn't as good as the first two seasons, but still entertaining. I'd be happy with that.

wow that's garbage, that's somehow even worse than turning them into the A- team like they did in season 4

 

season 4 A-team > >>>>> putting them all back in prison.. and it's not even close..

 

i mean this is clearly a cash grab, it's clearly a wanna be fast 5... lets make it offical and make it like that.. make it generic action..

 

simply put it's impossible for this show to have any logic in it now.. those days are gone if they are all back in prison.. .. so i'm interested too see where this goes (nowhere good in guessing)

 

in all truth and honesty despite being a sexist.. i'd MUCH rather them reboot the womens prison break idea.. if that's an option... why kill a great show like prison break.. just leave it alone... hire some hot women and sell the show based on that... it works for supergirl.... why can't it work for prison break !?

 

hell i heard they are making a female spiderman FOR f*ck SAKE ..... so yeah... why not do that to prison break too.. it can't be anymore harmful than this current cash grab.......

To be honest, its f*cking silly. Season 1, 2 and 3 were good, but after that when it turned in to that "covernment agent" crap, it turned in to sh*t. :v:

The returning show should have new characters, new story and just normal prison break.

It was really good show, before the last season.

I will still watch it tough.

The release date for the revival is set to be after the final season of Bones finishes airing. Prison Break will be taking over that time slot.

 

Executive Producer and series creator Paul Scheuring compares Michael's new story to "The Odyssey" : "The deepest, darkest part of the Middle Eastern struggle might be that. It raises the question: How the hell of all places did he end up there? Doing honor to the Odyssey, one of the big components of the season was Odysseus went through hell, he went across half the globe to get home. That’s what I wanted to do with Michael."
