Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar, and Amaury Nolasco are all set to reprise their roles for Fox’s Prison Break event series, EW has learned.
The next chapter in the Prison Break saga picks up when clues surface suggesting the previously believed-to-be-dead Michael (Wentworth Miller) may actually be alive. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag (Knepper), C-Note (Dunbar), and Sucre (Nolasco, who first teased his return on Instagram), are pulled back into the action.
And when the original cast reunites, it won’t be stateside. “The story unravels on an international landscape; it’s not a domestic show,” co-chairman and CEO Dana Walden previously revealed.
In addition to familiar faces on screen, the original producing team of Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein, and Dawn Olmstead will executive-produce the event series, with Scheuring set as showrunner and writer.
Prison Break is expected to debut sometime in the 2016-2017 season.
