Prison Break, a beloved television show, is about to make a reappearance. An early version of the Fox drama is being developed for Hulu. Elgin James, the showrunner, executive producer, and co-creator of Mayans M.C., wrote and executive produced it under his Sierra Drive banner. This is James’ first project since the finale of the popular FX series.
Sources say that the new episode, which is being referred to as a “new chapter,” is set in the Prison Break universe. While specifics are being withheld, we are informed that Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell), the two main characters of the original series and its spinoffs on Fox, are not anticipated to be involved.
James’ agreement with 20th Television, a division of Disney Television Studios, which produced the first Prison Break and is in charge of the new spinoff, is what gave rise to the new series. James serves as an executive producer alongside Paul Scheuring, the creator and executive producer of Prison Break, and Dawn Olmstead, Marty Adelstein, and Neal Moritz, the executive producers of the original series.
In the 2005 television series Prison Break, Michael Scofield (played by Miller) was a young man who devised a complex plan to break out of prison in order to prove his brother Lincoln Burrows’ (played by Purcell) innocence and save him from death row.
Amaury Nolasco, Sarah Wayne Callies, Paul Adelstein, Rockmond Dunbar, Inbar Lavi, Mark Feuerstein, Robert Knepper, and Augustus Prew were among the other noteworthy cast members.
After the Fox television series ran for four seasons, a made-for-TV movie called The Final Break concluded the story twelve days after the Season 4 finale in 2009. A limited series that debuted in 2015 on Fox and starred Miller and Purcell as the sequel to Prison Break functioned as a fifth season.
