A few years back one of the shows, which often made headlines for Fox other than ’24’ was ‘Prison Break’, which centred on two brothers who enact a Prison Breakout in order to expose a deep rooted conspiracy, which seemed to control everything. Including the US government.
The series had a number of memorable characters, which included Theodore (Teabag) Bagwell, who was played brilliantly by character actor Robert Knepper, who has since gone on to play roles in ‘Heroes’, ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash.’
Quite how Fox will do a limited series of ‘Prison Break’ remains to be seen. The series wrapped things up pretty neatly by the close of its fourth season. And the death of its main character in the form of Wentworth Miller’s Michael Scholfiled remains to be seen, but keen eyed fans will point out that we never actually seen Michael die in the series.
A few months back at the TCA’s Fox bosses Dana Walden and Gary Newman said that they would bring back Prison Break “in a heartbeat”. So given that quote. It’s hardly surprising that development is now underway.
