Never knowingly un-ridiculous, the revived FOX series wrapped its fifth season with a totally outrageous finale.

"Behind the Eyes" delivered two absurd plot twists and a happy ending for Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), but with fans still clamouring for more, was it really goodbye?

Here"s everything you need to lớn know about the show"s potential future, following its brief but blissful comeback.

Prison Break season 6: Is it happening?

In January 2018, FOX officially confirmed that it was "developing a new iteration" of Prison Break. "It"s in very early stages of development," said entertainment president Michael Thorn. "But we"re really excited about it."

Miller himself also expressed an interest in revisiting his character under the right circumstances: "There"s always room for more, in my mind. As long as it"s a story that"s worth telling, as long as it feels justified và cool và edgy.

"It has to lớn be something that"s not going to let the fans down, that"s going lớn satisfy & surprise. I"m open to the conversation."



FOX đứng đầu dog Dana Walden stated that the network would "definitely consider doing more episodes", và Dominic Purcell later announced on Instagram that a sixth season was actually "in the works", with FOX officially confirming more episodes a little under a month later.

But disappointingly, the plans that were in motion have seemingly stalled. The Prison Break writers room shared a tweet back in August 2019 with the following message: "Nothing is ever dead (remember when Sara was decapitated?), but for now, the elusive season six is not in the cards."

"There"s no plan right now to lớn 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 lớn tell, we are so ready to lớn listen because those are some franchises of which I"m so proud and feel so fortunate that they"re in our stable," Collier said (via SlashFilm).

So it"s not been ruled out, but it"s also not đứng top of FOX"s priority menu at the moment.

Purcell has since spoken out on his hopes for a sixth season, explaining how the coronavirus situation was opening a "steely resolve" in him lớn get it made.

"We are all in agreement that if the story is worthy it will get made," he said.

"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," he continued.

Purcell followed up with another Instagram update (since deleted) that added more fuel khổng lồ the Prison Break fire: "Will season pb 6 happen. Yes....."

It certainly doesn"t sound like he"s been put off after suffering a broken nose & a busted head after an iron ball fell on him during one of his Prison Break filming sessions.

"Stoked khổng lồ be alive. All good," he wrote on Instagram. "Doc said I have an unusually tough tissue fibre, that"s what saved me apparently. Thank god for my #Viking heritage hahaha !!!!"

Chatting to Collider about the vital ingredients that were integral to lớn making the last chapter happen, Scheuring said: "I needed to hear that the actors were interested, và then subsequent to lớn that, I had to lớn convince myself that there was a good enough idea to vày it. We weren"t doing it just to vị it. We wanted khổng lồ make it awesome. Those were some of the components that went into it.

Prison Break season 6 episodes: What"s the plot?

The latest season ended with Michael granted full immunity for the crimes he committed while under the thrall of rogue CIA agent Poseidon (Mark Feuerstein), leaving our nhân vật free to play happy families with Sara và Mike Jr.

Co-showrunner Vaun Wilmott has confirmed that "ideas are percolating" for a sixth season, so what might the future hold for Michael and the gang, when Prison Break returns? Beyond, y"know, another prison break.

"Behind the Eyes" might contain a hint as the show"s possible next step, with the director of the CIA (Ken Tremblett) offering Michael a job that would utilise his particular mix of skills.

Interestingly, Scheuring"s original ending for the recent mini-series suggested that Scofield would indeed struggle to lớn settle down. "The idea was Michael comes back and he"s apparently got a normal life, but with that comes a creeping paranoia that things can"t stay good like this.

"There was a scripted page where they said, "Michael, you can stop looking over your shoulder now. You"re free", but then he looks over his shoulder & you can see the whole world out there & all the people in the park & everything, and any one of them might be a threat, và you realise that a man like this could never go back to lớn a normal life.

"But again, that didn"t end up happening exactly how we wanted it, so this is what we got on film. Unfortunately, that"s not on screen, but... Hopefully the audience gets the subtext that life will never be normal for Michael Scofield."

But Miller has said that he no longer has any interest in playing straight characters, which rules out Michael"s return.

"Their stories have been told (and told)," he wrote on Instagram. "So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons... I understand this is disappointing. I"m sorry."

He added: "Forgive me – I need lớn put my finger on something. In và around the "reveal" I"m gay , don"t wish khổng lồ play straight parts etc", I saw dozens of comments suggesting Michael leave Sara for T-bag. Or that T-bag will be "looking" for Michael/me.

"Is it possible, lớn some folks, T-Bag = "gay" rep on Prison Break? Maybe the ONLY rep on TV in their part of the world? <...> For the queer kids, the queer adults who will never come out because coming out = death in their part of the world... Is T-bag the best they can expect?"

Miller went on to say that "balanced, responsible storytelling matters".

Scheuring previously told The Hollywood Reporter that "there"s no show without" Miller before they brought him back last time, but will that still be the case going forwards? Only time will tell.

His absence also rules out his own pitch, which he shared with fans on Instagram.

Miller"s idea revolved around a billionaire, named Tag, kidnapping Michael and Lincoln and forcing them khổng lồ relive all of their previous prison escapes.

"Why? Because Tag likes lớn watch," he wrote. "Tag wants to lớn watch them re-enact PB seasons 1-5 from start lớn finish. Just for him. Every juicy plot twist. Every major phối piece. From the prison riot khổng lồ "Sarah"s" head in a box to Michael"s knife fight in a Yemen desert. Yes. Tag would like that very much indeed."

He continued: "Tag forces Michael lớn revisit his past, to rethink & justify his catastrophic life choices. They revisit the distant past too, Tag staging key scenes from Michael"s childhood, forcing Michael to lớn look on, making corrections/adjustments, exploring different outcomes."


Prison Break season 6 release date: When would episode 1 air?

In March 2018, Scheuring announced that he"d completed the script for season 6, episode 1.

Then two months later, FOX"s then-CEO Dana Walden confirmed that new episodes were still in the very early phases of development. "We"re just focused on getting the next iteration right," Walden said. "I don"t anticipate there would be any significant announcements for several months."

"If the right storyline comes along, I am sure the gang would be back to do it again," said Vaun Wilmott, implying that any main character still breathing at the end of the latest mini-series could be back.

We know now that it"s highly unlikely we"ll be seeing Miller again, but there are still plenty of other favourites who are a possibility, including:

Dominic Purcell (Lincoln Burrows) Rockmond Dunbar (C-Note)Robert Knepper (T-Bag)Amaury Nolasco (Sucre)Inbar Lavi (Sheba)

Sarah Wayne Callies could also return as Sara Tancredi-Scofield.

Mike Jr would be part of any future iteration, while the recurring character Ja (Rick Yune) is also a possibility.

Series original Kellerman (Paul Adelstein) was spectacularly killed off in the latest episodes, but that hasn"t stopped Adelstein from hinting that the hitman-turned-politician could still resurface in season six.
