Prison Break Season 5: Release Date Confirmed For 2016. Creators Talk About Scofield’s Return in Season 5

Prison Break Season 5 all set to make a comeback on TV screens in 2016. Also, Fox CEO talks about Scofield’s death and his return in Season 5. Read here what she has to say.

Michael Scofield’s death scene was probably the defining moment of Prison Break.

Plot twist: it never happened.

Fox Co-Chairman and CEO Dana Walden just confirmed the release date of Prison Break Season 5. According to her 5th Season will be released in 2016. Fox has commissioned ten episodes, and they are not sure yet if they are going to change the title, like Heroes: Reborn.

Walden describes Season 5 as a bit of a sequel. She said that the season would pick up several years later from where we left it. She also broke the news for fans that Wentworth Miller [Michael Scofield] and Dominic Purcell [Lincoln Burrows] will be back together. And along with the favorite duo, other iconic characters will return too.

The big question that everyone has in mind is, How can Scofield [Wentworth Miller] still be alive? He had a tumor, regular nosebleeds and above all, he was electrocuted in the last episode of Season 4 – The Final Break.









Walden joked and said it would be ignored as a plot point. Though there will be a logical reason for why is Scofield still alive and how did he escape from high-security prison. She said, what the show runners told them was very consistent and believable – in the Prison Break World.

The Fox CEO says fans should be excited to see Scofield and other casts back together once again on television. Season 5 will be a true vision by Paul Scheuring – the creator of the show.

The theories we have in our mind regarding Michael’s death is. Presumably, we will hear that Scofield faked his death because he wanted to rest of them to live a happy life.

Or maybe CIA picked him up, and now he is fighting for a greater cause, and he didn’t want anyone else to know about it as they might get in trouble.

The only confirmation we get of Scofield’s death was a video message that he left for his family and then we are shown, Sara’s visit to a tombstone.

They didn’t show Scofield die. The makers of the show must have kept it in mind that if sometime in future, the show is to be picked up again, there should be room left for Scofield’s return.

So, they kept it in vague. They wrote the ending in such a way that if Scofield was to return, the path could be paved quickly.

Anyways, fans a very much excited and can’t wait to see their favorite show once again. No official announcement has been made regarding its release though there are rumors that it’s going to be aired in March 2016.

    The writers have a lot of explaining to do since in the final episode Sara and her son went to visit Michael in the cemetery. Would a father really want his son growing up thinking he was dead – I think not. I hope it’s not the “dream sequence” we see so often when the writers can’t come up with something believable.

      Absolutely! ‘The return of Michael’ is going to be the make or break point of the show.

      I was wondering the same thing. I find it very annoying when a journalist neglects to proof read their work. It’s lazy and makes you look like an u professional 10 year old. I also don’t care if it’s because english is your second language, if that’s the case. You can still proof read or have someone else do it for you.
