'​Prison Break' Season 6 Is 'Going Back To The Very Beginning'

After news broke that the sixth season of Prison Break was on its way, fans have been whipped into a frenzy about what the next installment could bring.

Well, apparently, a step back in time and a trip down memory lane - according to show creator Paul T Scheuring, who took to Twitter to tell us that they'd be 'going back to the beginning'.

Responding to a fan's response, which featured a photo of Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Amaury Nolasco and William Fichtner, Scheuring added that 'these cats will be on your screen again'.

Scheuring had already drummed up a bit of hype with another tweet 10 days ago, in which he announced that he'd finished the script for the first series of the forthcoming series.

Fans were chuffed with the news, pleased to hear that progress was being made so soon after the fifth season had aired.

"This is a great way to start my week knowing there's progress!" one fan replied. "Thanks so much @paultscheuring love this show and I'm glad you shared the news with us!"

"Omg yes! Great work on last season! Prison break is my fav show and would totally love another season, hope to see Mahone and more of sucre," another added.

Fox confirmed that work on a sixth season was underway back in January, with Fox boss Michael Thorn telling reporters cryptically that 'a new iteration' of Prison Break was being developed.

The network executive teased: "It's in very early stages of development, but we're really excited about it."

The news was also confirmed by actor Dominic Purcell, who wrote on Instagram: "#prisonbreak6. In the works."

Last season, which saw Prison Break revived for the first time in eight years, Michael was exonerated for the crimes he committed while under the influence of rogue CIA agent Poseidon (Mark Feuerstein), leaving him free to return to a normal life with Sara and Mike.

But, given that we're going 'back to the beginning' for the next installment, only time will tell what's going to happen next.
