At the end of the last Prison Break season, everything seemed wrapped up. Michael was back with Sara and all was as it should be. However fans, as always, were hungry for more. Their were even little teases that another season could be happening. Well now, thanks to Deadline, we know Prison Break Season 6 is officially in the works.
While show creator Paul T. Scheuring confirmed the sixth season is being written, Gary Newman, Chairman/CEO of Fox Television Group said there likely won’t be an annoncement about the series for several months. Newman stated the sixth season of Prirson Break is in “early stages of development” and they’re “focused on getting the next iteration right.”
Fox TCA session, president of entertainment Michael Thorn told the press several months ago, We’re really excited. We’ll be happy to share when we have more. We definitely have one in development.”
While ratings for the fifth season weren’t amazing they did do very well in delayed viewing. Combined with Prison Break being a solid performer on Netflix it’s no wonder the series is coming back.
After season five aired, Wentworth Miller gave his own idea to The Hollywood Reporterabout what could happen to Michael in Prison Break Season 6, involving him coming to terms with his nightmare of a life,
“He’s reunited with his loved ones, but I think he would be haunted for a long time. I think there’d be paranoia, insomnia, anxiety … maybe a lingering taste for darker things, illegal things. If there are new stories to tell, we could probably start there: with Michael’s not-so-smooth re-entry into civilian life.”
If that’s what the persue with the sixth season we could be in for a great story.
Our first rumblings of a sixth season came from series star Dominic Purcell’s instagram.
But will they break out of another prison? Knowing Prison Break they’ll find a way and it’ll be off the wall insane.
