​It Has Been Confirmed Season 5 Of ‘Prison Break’ Will Be Wentworth Miller’s Last

Wentworth Miller and the rest of the Prison Break cast are unlikely to appear in the show again, the show's creator has claimed

Paul Scheuring has said that it would take a new writer to prolong the show beyond the current fifth series as he's out of ideas for the show.

Speaking to Collider, he explained: "I couldn't tell you another story about this group of people. Maybe somebody else can, or by accident, I'll somehow, possibly, dream up another prison escape that's new and fresh, but I would bet against it.


"You can only be open for business, if it's worth being open for business. Your product has to be worthwhile. Until I, or someone else, can come up with something that's really worthwhile for the audience, you have to say goodbye to these people.'

"At the end, you'll be like, 'That was the dynamic. That's what happened. And that's how it was resolved. Wow!' There's no over-hanging piece that will make you want to come back next year."

The action in the latest series has moved to the Middle East where Michael Schofield (played by Miller) is imprisoned in a Yemeni jail after working with an ISIS-style terrorist group.

His prison break involves his brother Lincoln coming to his aid and the trailer shows some major action scenes and an escape plot that involves the collapse of the government.

As well as the Burrows brothers, Sucre, T-Bag, Sara Tancredi, Paul Kellerman, Whip and C-Note will all be making an appearance.

Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein will also all reprise their title roles.


This trailer has previously dropped and it looks like it was worth the wait...

In the trailer, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) is handed an image of Michael by an old pal, who regular viewers of the show will recognise as Robert Knepper's character, Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell, and he realises there's every chance his long-dead sibling is alive and in trouble.

Fans had questioned in the past whether the show would pretend Michael's death was fake, but FOX TV boss Dana Walden dismissed the rumours at the time.


The show was released on Tuesday April 4, while us Brits have to wait until Monday April 10 at 9pm.

You can catch it every week on Fox UK - which is available on Sky (channel 124), and Virgin (channel 157).

Fox UK is also available through NOW TV.
