It was confirmed last August that Prison Break would be returning to our screens for a fifth season. It’s been a long nine month wait with little information but FOX have now released the first trailer for the new season.
Prison Break season 5 will be a 10-episode run with original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein all reuniting for an all-new adventure spanning the globe.
In the new series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and Sara, Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre, T-Bag and C-Note, are pulled back into the action.
Watch the first trailer for Prison Break season 5 below:
The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.
