‘Prison Break’ is Returning to Fox With an Event Series

Miss Prison Break? Well it will briefly be returning to Fox with an event series a la 24 and The X-Files.

Explained Walden, “Some of the iconic characters from that show will be back. It definitely will address some questions that were set up at the end of the series and for a new audience.”

The “sequel” will take place several years after the end of the original series and apparently there’s a very logical explanation for why dead characters will be back.

Said event series (which is currently in development) will last for 10-episodes.
