‘Prison Break’ is an American television serial drama premiered on Fox, created by Paul Scheuring. The plot follows two brothers, Lincoln Burrows played by actor Dominic Purcell, and Michael Scofield who’s played by actor Wentworth Miller. Burrows has been wrongfully sentenced to death, and Scofield tries to help his brother escape the prison and clear his name. Of course, this isn’t any simple task, and the series has gone on to 5 seasons, with the 6th season rumoured to be released to no avail. Fox initially turned down the series due to its long-term prospects but decided to back production in 2004, and the show has received tremendous positive reviews since the first season!
Season 5 had a ‘happy’ ending with Michael Scofield being granted immunity and being reunited with his family. Nonetheless, fans have been teased that the series will be continuing for one last show. The teasing began in January 2018 when Fox confirmed they were “developing a new iteration”. Creator Paul Scheuring also tweeted that he’s completed the script around March 2018. However, a couple of months later Fox CEO Dana Walden contradicted with an announcement which said it is still in the early phases of development. Disappointingly, the next chapter has been stalled. 2018 ended, and 2019 is about to end with no release date of Prison Break Season 6 on the horizon. Paul Scheuring comments that the hardest part about Season 6 is giving fans a satisfying story. It seems that the next season is definitely on the books, but it’s just not Fox’s top priority at the moment.
