Prison Break Star Dominic Purcell 'Confirms' Season Six Is Happening
"Rumor number 2. I'm bald. No I have a full head of hair; the people demand I shave it.
"Rumor number 3, Will season pb 6 happen. Yes.....
"Rumor number 4. Do I like humans? No. Not on mass. Definitely not."
The important part there isn't that he doesn't like humans - en masse, we have to assume - but that Prison Break could be coming back for another go.
Obviously, we'll have to wait for something more official before getting too excited, but it's definitely an encouraging sign.
The show was last spotted on screens worldwide in 2017, and Purcell's statements that season six is definitely on the cards are at odds with what we've heard in the past from the network that makes the programme.
Fox Entertainment's CEO Charlie Collier said in August 2019 that the network didn't plan to bring the show back.
He said: "There's no plan right now to revive Prison Break or any of the other franchises, but when the creators come with a story that they think is the right time to tell, we are so ready to listen because those are some franchises of which I'm so proud and feel so fortunate that they're in our stable."

In the immortal words of Lloyd Christmas from Dumb and Dumber - 'so you're saying there's a chance?'
This isn't the first time that Purcell has teased a return for the show.
In another slightly rambling Instagram post from earlier this year, Purcell said: "I get smashed with 'when is #prisonbreak 6 happening'.
"What I can promise is this. We are all in agreement that if the story is worthy it will get made.
"Now with the horror of this #virus the calamity of it all drills inside me a new focus a steely resolve with PRISON BREAK 6- I'm very optimistic with #socialdistancing and a fierce adherence to expert opinion on how to beat this catastrophic unprecedented event, we all as one will be victorious over #coronavirus - corporations such as #netflix are desperate for content."
"The biggest gift all #artists #atheletes etc can give to you the people is entertainment so let's get our f***in lives back listen to the experts!
"I won't comment on pb 6 until it is time. Be safe. Be smart. Be vigilant. Yours truly Dom."
Well, it seems as if he now feels it is safe to comment, get ready Prison Break fans.
