'Prison Break': 5 Things to Know Before Season 5


In the final episode of 2009 fourth season of the FOX series - along with the made-for-TV movie "Prison Break: The Final Break" - the character of Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor and he sacrifices himself to save the mother of his child.

Prison Break season 5 is set to premiere on April 4th on Fox. (T-Bag lost his hand during Season 1's prison escape and wore a ridiculous rubber hand the rest of the series.) Now that T-Bag has become quasi-bionic, Knepper reports, "you'll see in different episodes where I had a lot of fun with this hand".

"With the possibility that his brother might be alive and Lincoln decides to investigate that thoroughly, there's a sense of hope that's restored", Dominic previously told Deadline.

"I always just thought it would give them a real fighting chance if they could ever take a deep breath for five minutes and enjoy life". "Haha. I got a free nose job out of it".

You are going to find this hard to believe but Fox has gotten the band back together and "Prison Break" has returned. And you'll just have to watch all nine episodes to find out if that's true, or if Scheuring and company abandon it somewhere along the way for another adrenaline rush tied to a bad idea. Breaking Michael out, however, won't be easy- especially given the fact that things aren't exactly what they appear to be on the surface.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly writes, "The prison itself is a boring, unimaginative setting that doesn't offer much in terms of facilitating a conceptually interesting escape plot full of fresh ideas or interesting complications". Sober, remarried to Jacob (Mark Fuerstein) and raising the son she had with Michael in upstate NY, she initially balks at the idea of going down this potentially dark rabbit hole. In a way, we're betting it'll undoubtedly remind diehard Prison Break fans of Panama's Sona.

Even with some Middle Eastern politics rather carelessly thrown in and, more thoughtfully, Rockmond Dunbar's C-Note having converted to Islam, the 20th Century Fox Television-produced revival feels old hat from what I've seen. "I don't think Sara and Jacob are under any illusions this is a once-in-a-lifetime love", she went on to say. What has you most intrigued by what lies ahead for Michael and Lincoln this spring?

"You just have to embrace it".

If there's one thing I know I don't want from Prison Break, it's an attempt to interrogate the founding principles of groups like ISIS. And yes the meltynauts, we really cannot believe it because if the revival was announced a little less than two years ago, we had to wait months to discover the first episode of this new season.
