'Prison Break' Creator Breaks Down Surprise Fan-Favorite Death

25 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Tuesday's episode of Prison Break, "The Prisoner's Dilemma."]

"This one's for real."

Those four words represent the harsh reality for longtime Prison Break fans, now that one of the show's longest running characters is finally off the board — and that's straight from creator and showrunner Paul Scheuring's mouth.

In the fourth episode of Fox's revived series, Paul Kellerman (Paul Adelstein) finally reached the end of the line, though not for the first time: Kellerman was seemingly killed off back in season two, only for his death to be revealed »

Exclusive: 'Prison Break' Creator on Shocking Poseidon Twist: 'All Roads Point to [Spoiler]'

25 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Tuesday’s episode of Prison Break.

Did we just find out Poseidon’s identity?

At the end of Tuesday’s episode of Prison Break, titled “The Prisoner’s Dilemma,” the mysterious figurehead -- only known as “a rogue CIA operative” -- was possibly revealed to be Sara’s husband, Jacob Ness (Mark Feuerstein), as he was spotted by T-Bag (Robert Knepper) talking to two henchmen, A&W (Marina Benedict) and Van Gogh (Steve Mouzakis). But, is Jacob really Poseidon?

“There are definitely a number of more moves to that story,” creator Paul T. Scheuring exclusively tells Et. “The idea is to say, ‘Boy, that sure looks like it’s Jacob. Jacob sure looks like [he’s] Poseidon.’ All roads point to him at that point, but like I said, that is not the final understanding of Poseidon or Jacob.”

Exclusive: 'Prison Break' Boss on Michael's Emotional Breakdown: 'He Was Carrying Too Much Pain Inside'

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Tuesday’s episode of Prison Break.

How is Michael Scofield going to get out of this?

On Tuesday’s episode of Prison Break, Michael’s (Wentworth Miller) plan to break out of the Yemeni prison goes horribly wrong and ends the life of one of his cellmates as a fatal consequence. Thrown into solitary confinement as punishment, Michael unsuccessfully tries to send one last video message to Sara Tancredi-Scofield (Sarah Wayne Callies), explaining why he faked his own death and the reason his new moniker, Kaniel Outis, isn’t who he wants to be remembered as if he dies. “This whole lie, it was all for you,” Michael tearfully concedes, all hope lost.

Prison Break creator says season 5 is likely to be the end of the show

5 April 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prison Break returned to TV screens this week as its fifth season got underway [read our review of the first episode here], and while creator and executive producer Paul T. Scheuring previously suggested that another season was a possibility, it now sounds as though he has had a change of heart, telling Collider that he plans to wrap up the series and provide a proper ending to the show with the event series.

“A big thing for me is to be able to deliver answers,” said Scheuring. “Then the audience knows that the things that you tease are not just for the tease, but there’s actually something there. I think a lot of shows figure out how to tease you very well, but then have to get out of it later, so they just keep kicking the can down the road because they don’t know how to get out of it. So in this case, especially with a short run, »

Prison Break Season 5 Episode 1 Review – ‘Ogygia’

5 April 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Munro reviews the first episode of Prison Break season 5…

Some eight years after the show’s original run wrapped up, Prison Break has been resurrected by Fox amid their current obsession with nostalgic retreads, reuniting most of the principal cast members with series creator and writer Paul Scheuring. For better and indeed for worse, the new limited event series kicks off in spectacularly ridiculous fashion, likely to serve as familiar comfort food to fans who will themselves admit they’re not watching for particularly coherent storytelling.

Smartly opening with a handy summary of the story up to this point, the first episode nevertheless appears to suggest that this season will be a largely self-contained affair. Yes, new viewers won’t appreciate the character dynamics or various callbacks to prior seasons, but on the basis of “Ogygia”, it functions relatively well on its own.

Exclusive: Wentworth Miller on Resurrecting 'Prison Break' Nearly 8 Years Later: 'I Had Left Michael Behind'

4 April 2017 4:39 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s been nearly a decade since Prison Break last graced the small screen, but it’s finally back -- and fans are in for an action-packed treat!

Fox’s prison drama returns Tuesday for a new nine-episode installment, welcoming back series stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell as Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows, respectively. Et was with Miller on the Vancouver set, where he dished on what fans can expect in Prison Break’s latest chapter, which kicks off by addressing the elephant in the room: Michael’s presumed death.

“We find out that Michael is alive, not necessarily well,” Miller told Et last June. “When the story picks up, he is in a prison in Yemen and in a dark place physically and emotionally.”

‘Prison Break’ Review: Fox Revival Should Have Stayed On Lockdown

3 April 2017 2:59 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Almost eight years after Prison Break ended its fourth and what was considered final season, Fox has revived the Paul Scheuring-created action drama as an event series debuting April 4. Unfortunately, this latest iteration of the once impressive series led by Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell and Sarah Wayne Callies should have been kept on lockdown. As I say in my video review above, what makes the punishment all the worse is that the original run of Prison Break was… »

Inside Fox’s Prison Break Revival — Watch the Series’ First 5 Minutes Ahead of the Upcoming Premiere!

3 April 2017 1:14 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

Prison Break is back for, well, another prison break.

Eight years after Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) died — well, supposedly died — the tatted former inmate of Fox River returns in an Odyssey-inspired tale where he desperately plots another prison break, this time from a Yemeni jail, in order to reunite with his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell), former wife Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), and the son he’s never met. The question isn’t whether he’ll escape, but if the Prison Break reboot can recapture the magic of the original. Creator »

Prison Break stars talk potential sixth season

31 March 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The stars and executive producers of Prison Break have spoken about a potential sixth season of the show following its return this April.

Prison Break has been gone from our screens for quite some time. The show, which debuted on Fox back in 2005, was a global success, riveting millions with the story of Michael Schofield and his framed brother Lincoln.

The show somewhat tailed off in its latter two seasons, with season four bringing the series to a close.

Its support has never wavered however, and fans are now being treated to a brand new set of episodes with a fifth season of prison breaking shenanigans.

Whether the show would continue beyond this initial return has been so far unknown, but now during a recent panel, as reported by Deadline, Executive Producer Paul T. Scheuring has commented on the possibility.

“I think that’s an April 5th question. It all comes from Fox ultimately. »

‘Prison Break’ Reboot Cast Explains Why the Reboot Makes Sense

30 March 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s popular drama “Prison Break” ended its run in 2009. But seven years later, given the industry’s fascination with reboots, the series is back with the original cast. Show creator Paul Scheuring returns as well, working with executive producers Vaun Wilmott and Michael Horowitz to craft the nine-hour story. The cast and creatives appeared at a special premiere event at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. The panel featured cast members Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar, Mark Feuerstein, Inbar Lavi, Augustus Prew and Paul Adelstein, and focused on why the reboot makes sense now.  

Purcell recalled how the reboot got off the ground. “Wentworth and I started reminiscing about the good old days on ‘Prison Break,'” he said. “And [we] talked about the Netflix generation discovering shows there.”

Scheuring chimed in, “There’s no version of recreating the show without Dominic and Wentworth. We »

Exclusive: 'Prison Break' Boss Says Revival Recaptures Show's Early 'Magic': We Want 'Fans to Go Nuts'

30 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Nearly a decade after Prison Break went off the air, the beloved prison drama returns for a brand new chapter on Tuesday, marking the returns of series stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell. Though a lot has happened since 2009 -- when Prison Break wrapped up its original run with Michael Scofield’s supposed death -- there was a deep desire to go back to basics and lean into what made the show's early seasons successful.

“That was the intention. If we’re going to bring it back, let’s try to recapture some of that vibe and magic of that first season,” creator Paul T. Scheuring told Et ahead of Tuesday’s premiere, citing J.J. Abrams’ 2015 blockbuster, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as an unlikely inspiration. “What he did so wonderfully was he evoked that original feel of the first Star Wars movies and brought back a lot of the original characters and supplemented them with »

'Prison Break' Producers Explain Everything to Know About the Revival

29 March 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

If Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) can break his way out of a maximum security penitentiary like Fox River, if he can escape the clutches of a Panamanian prison like Sona, then is it really so far-fetched that he can think his way out of a box — even if that box is a coffin?

It's the central question at the heart of Prison Break, the Fox drama from creator Paul Scheuring, which returns April 4 after seven years on ice for a limited nine-episode run. The show's comeback is surprising on a number of levels, including the »

7 Biggest Takeaways From ‘Prison Break’ Premiere in Austin

13 March 2017 7:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After a seven-year hiatus, the Scofield brothers are back. Fox’s “Prison Break” seemed all but dead when its lead, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), was presumed to have died at the end of the drama’s fourth season. Now, the character and show have been resurrected — with Season 5 set to premiere on April 4.

Before that happens though, the cast — minus Miller, who had a prior engagement — and the creators held a private screening in Austin (not affiliated with SXSW) for fans, followed by a short Q&A.

Here are Variety’s top takeaways from the conversation.

Dominic Purcell’s big neck saved his life

They were shooting in Morocco for the Yemen scenes and the cast and crew were dealing with very high heat and limited infrastructure and resources. Part of the prison ceiling fell on Purcell’s head and almost killed him. The doctor said that if he didn’t have the strength and size of »

‘Rizzoli & Isles’ Star Jordan Bridges Joins Gerard Butler, 50 Cent in Thriller ‘Den of Thieves’

27 February 2017 4:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jordan Bridges has joined the cast of the Stx thriller “Den of Thieves,” starring Gerard Butler and Curtis Jackson — aka 50 Cent.

Pablo Schreiber (“13 Hours”) and O’Shea Jackson Jr. also star in the film. Christian Gudegast and Paul Scheuring are directing from their own script.

The thriller follows the intersecting lives of an elite unit of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as they plan a seemingly impossible heist on downtown L.A.’s Federal Reserve Bank.

Bridges plays the by-the-book federal agent, who is the complete opposite and the nemesis of Butler’s character, “Big Nick” Flanagan.

The movie — currently in production — is being produced by Tucker Tooley and Mark Canton, as well as Butler and Alan Siegel from G-Base, Butler’s production company.

Bridges is best known for starring role opposite Angie Harmon in the TNT drama “Rizzoli & Isles. »

New Prison Break Trailer Debuts As Premiere Date Is Set

11 January 2017 8:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s becoming quite obvious that Fox is benefiting greatly from nostalgia as of late. Having recently revived classics such as The X-Files and 24 as limited engagements, I’m quite pleased that the next series to be resurrected is that of Prison Break, one of the shows that helped make the serialized approach an industry standard.

Originally having premiered in 2005, Paul Scheuring’s nail-biter of a creation told the story of two brothers – Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) – who got caught up in a conspiracy that went straight to the top. Over the course of four seasons, they escaped from two separate prisons, evaded the feds and unraveled various sinister plots. Not only that, but it served as the breakout roles (pun intended) for the likes of Miller, Robert Knepper and several others, as well as later being adapted to a video game.
