Big news from Fox’s portion of winter press tour! The net just announced that Prison Break would be coming to an end this season. Oh, did I say big news? I meant news we all saw coming a mile away.

The final string of episodes will kick off April 17, but exactly how many episodes there will be is an open question. “We’ve got our remaining batch of four episodes and then there are a couple more we’re contemplating,” says network prez Kevin Reilly, adding that the four-year old Prison has simply run its course. “The show is played out.”

Do you agree? Will you miss it? Looking for more scoop? Check out what Prison Break‘s exec producer told Lynette Rice exclusively about the series finale (for starters, “There will be deaths”) at EW’s Hollywood Insider.
