Today at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, FOX CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman confirmed that a 10-episode, event series revival of Prison Break is coming to FOX. Ms. Walden described it as a “bit of a sequel,” picking up several years after we left the characters in the 2009 series finale.
The network also confirmed that the series’ original stars, Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller, will both return. Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring is currently writing the first script and show bible.
“We’re confident we’re going straight to series with that one,” Mr. Newman said.
