The brothers are back! A fifth season of the acclaimed FOX show Prison Break was announced in 2015 and now is finally within our sights.
The show originally aired from 2005 to 2009 and ended with the lead character Michael Scofield allegedly dying and leaving behind his wife Sara and their unborn son -- but Michael has escaped a lot of things, so it's really no surprise that he has apparently escaped death.
We knew that Prison Break's reboot season would be airing mid-season, and only now do we have a date, so mark your calendars because the nine-episode series will air beginning on April 4th (a Tuesday) at 9pm. So we still have a few months to go, but the anticipation is growing! With any luck, Legends Of Tomorrow's season will be over by then, so fans of Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell won't have to pick between the two shows! Fun fact: the idea for a fifth season of Prison Break arose from Miller and Purcell talking about it while they were working on The Flash.
But a date isn't the only thing anxious fans received as of late. A new promo has been released. In May, from the Upfronts, we got this fun promo, but take a look at the newest one for even more mystery, intrigue and familiar faces!
Just like the show itself, this new season takes place seven years later, so a lot has changed -- not only for Michael but for everyone. It'll surely be interesting to see how these changes come into play, as the characters we know and love and any new characters team up to locate and save Michael.
How excited are you for Prison Break's return? If you haven't seen the show before, or want a to do a rewatch, you have enough time to do so!
