Are you ready for Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows’ biggest escape yet?
“If people start finding out that Michael is still alive, then it puts their larger secret agenda at risk. They’ll kill anybody that finds out,” he said.
Besides that, actor Dominic Haakon Myrtvedt Purcell, who plays the troublesome Lincoln Burrows, revealed that his character is “much more aware of the consequences of his actions.”
According to the reboot’s storyboard, the upcoming 9-episode series pick up after Michael’s apparent death in season 4 (2009). It features an intense car chase scene and the introduction of new villains Van Gogh (played by Steve Mouzakis) and A&W (played by Marina Benedict) from episode 1.

The official synopsis for the Odyssey-inspired revival is as follows:
“In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael Scofield (played by Wentworth Miller) may be alive. Lincoln Burrows (played by Dominic Purcell) and Sara (played by Sarah Wayne Callies), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as 3 of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre (played by Amaury Nolasco), T-Bag (played by Robert Knepper), and C-Note (played by Rockmond Dunbar), are pulled back into the action.”
Slated for release in spring 2017, FOX’s “Prison Break” reboot will consist of 9 episodes.
