According to TVLine, Fox is developing a "Prison Break" limited series, which would see the return of the show's original co-leads, Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller. It is expected that the series would feature a closed-ended story with approximately twelve episodes work like "24: Live Another Day."
"Prison Break" ended its four season run in 2009. It was about one brother (Miller) allowing himself to be imprisoned in order break his brother (Purcell), who was falsely accused of murder, out. Since the series finale, Purcell and Miller have reunited on The CW's "The Flash," as DC Comics villains Heat Wave and Captain Cold, and will reprise their roles in the forthcoming spin-off "Legends of Tomorrow." During this year's Television Critics Association Press Tour, both actors expressed interest returning to their 2005-2009 Fox drama in which they played brothers.
"We actually floated the idea to Fox very casually and they seemed very not casual about this interest," Miller said in an interview with E! News. "They seemed to think there was something there." At that time, they had yet to contact any of the other cast members about returning.
Fox isn't the only network that's bring back old series. There's "Fuller House," a sequel to "Full House," over on Netflix, David Lynch is back onboard for "Twin Peaks," on Showtime, and this fall, NBC is airing "Heroes Reborn."
