For years, fans have been wondering when Prison Break Season 5 will come back on air after the Season 4 finale in 2009. They finally got the good news recently after Fox revealed that it is set to reprise the hit series that starred Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell. The series will start airing in Spring of 2017.
The year 2016 was a year for series reprisals and revivals. We did see Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life and Fuller House coming back, and hitting it off with the fans. It’s clear that there is a market for revivals of old TV series.
Prison Break Season 5 plot and storyline
When Miller’s (Michael Scofield) character was killed off last season, a lot of fans called foul and thought that was the end of their dreams of Prison Break Season 5. Thankfully, his return has been confirmed. Fans are now speculating about his character.
According to a report on Yibada, Lincoln Burrows (Purcell) will make the biggest escape of his life as he and the gang—T-Bag (Robert Knepper), C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar), and Sucre (Amaury Nolasco)—attempt to free Michael from a prison cell in Yemen. The trailer showed that T-Bag may attempt to betray Michael even though he was the one to tell Lincoln his brother is still alive.
Betrayal is the name of the game in the show’s Season 5 because T-Bag is now looking after his own skin. He wants to redeem himself that he’s even willing to betray Lincoln and Michael. Knepper, for sure, will have a major role in series’ next season.

Who’s going to be onboard?
Back in August, Fox announced that they are reviving Prison Break for the fifth season. Soon thereafter, most of the cast confirmed that they are going to return. Miller, Purcell, Knepper, Sarah Wayne Callies, and the rest of the gang will be back.
Out of the original cast members, only Alexander Mahone (William Fichtner) and Donald Self (Michael Rapaport) won’t be back for Prison Break Season 5. Expect the show to be released in early 2017, though there is no exact release date yet.
