The “Prison Break” revival is coming soon.

After months of waiting for details about the reboot, which stars most of the series’ original actors, fans can now rest easy knowing when their favorite show will be back on TV. Watch Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) break out of prison once again when the show premieres on April 11 on Fox.

Aside from the announcement of the premiere date, a trailer for the upcoming event series was also released. The clip opens with Miller talking about his character, who presumably died seven years ago. It turns out he survived and is now a prisoner in a country in the Middle East. The clip also shows snippets of how T-Bag (Robert Knepper) informed Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) that Michael is alive and how Lincoln, with the help of Sucre (Amaury Nolasco) and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar), will help Michael escape.

Executive producer Paul T. Scheuring teased in an interview with TVLine that the upcoming revival series will be straightforward. “This is a very tight, close-ended story, and it’s just constant thriller cliffhanger revelation one after another,” Scheuring said. “It just feels very dense, and [it’s] a story that’s not disingenuous. Sometimes in the old model… you felt I’m flapping my wings a little bit there.”

Meanwhile, Miller also talked about why the revival is set outside of the U.S. In an interview with Digital Spy, the actor said that the producers of the show decided to give the revival a different setting as a nod to the series’ international fans. Miller also teased what his character’s biggest conflict will be.

“Is he the man that they remember?” the actor said. “Because it’s been seven years and he’s walked a dark road. He’s been up to some not so nice things and there’s a question as to whether or not he’s even qualified to be considered a good man.”

“Prison Break” ran from 2005 to 2009.
