‘Prison Break’: New Footage Further Reveals Wentworth Miller in Revival Series

     July 24, 2016


Though new trailers for Legion, Luke Cage, The Defenders, and Iron Fist have dominated the entertainment news yesterday, today brings a fresh look at Season 4 of Sherlock and, now, we’ve got a brand-new extended look at the hugely anticipated revival of Fox’s Prison Break. Where our first full look at the new series back in April opened with Michael Scofield’s ex-wife (The Walking Dead vet Sarah Wayne Callies), this new, extended bit of footage begins with a look at where Wentworth Miller‘s Schofield is, talking about matters of life and death with other inmates. I won’t ruin the 2-minute long clip, but it’s enough to show that Prison Break is keeping with the tone of the original run of the series while also clearly pushing into more ambitious narrative realms. We’ll know better how all of this fits together when the event series premieres in 2017. Now, we wait.

Here’s the new footage from the Prison Break revival from Comic-Con 2016:

Here’s the official synopsis for the Prison Break revival:

PRISON BREAK is back and ready for its biggest escape yet. In the thrilling new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on FOX from 2005-2009. The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, “The Loft”), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison. In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies, “Colony,” “The Walking Dead”), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco, “Telenovela”), T-BAG (Knepper, “Heroes”) and C-NOTE (Dunbar, “The Mentalist”), are pulled back into the action. “Prison Break” was an immediate critical and ratings hit when it premiered on FOX in the fall of 2005, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.
