‘Prison Break’ Season 6 might be revived again as long as its ‘quality’ is retained.
Our journey with ‘Prison Break’ has been nothing short of exciting. It kept us hooked right from season 1, and still had our attention when its fifth season released after an eight-year-long wait.
- Release date of ‘Prison Break’ Season 6.
- ‘Prison Break’ Season 6 plotline.
- Will the cast return for the last season?
However, the last season had only 9 episodes, which weren’t enough for us dedicated fans. The finale had a happy ending with Michael Scofield finally reuniting with his wife, Sara, and son, after 7 long years.
Release date of ‘Prison Break’ Season 6
While the show’s revival wasn’t as spectacular as its previous seasons, it did give us hope that the makers had something bigger in store for us. Back in 2017, Dominic Purcell, who plays the role of Lincoln Burrows, revealed on his social media handle that season 6 was under production.
But our excitement died down a little when his announcement was eventually taken down. A year later, Fox came forward to confirm that the show’s season 6 was in its initial stages. The cast seemed to be equally excited to take the drama series forward, but it seems like the idea died down in the early stages as the series creator Paul Scheuring was worried about the plot being redundant.
The team wasn’t ready to take the show forward until there was something left to portray. Digital Spy had reported what Scheuring had to say at a TV festival, “We as a group have to arrive at a story that we feel is worth telling. Creative integrity is really important and if we could arrive at a story that we felt was worthwhile…then it’s possible”.
So, looks like despite starting work on the project, it came to a standstill because of the lack of content to take it forward. Of course, we understand that quality comes first for Paul Scheuring and that’s what has made this show so beloved in the first place. But let’s hope that they find a direction to take the story forward soon!
Speculations on Season 6 of ‘Prison Break’
So, what can we expect if we were to get a new season of ‘Prison Break’? There has been a lot of discussion over its possible plotline, plus we can keep ourselves busy until the makers decide to grace us with more amazing content.
The first thing we can expect is to see Michael Scofield’s life outside prison. Since he finally unites with his family in the finale, we might get a glimpse of him living a normal, happy life, after all. But the focus can be on how long that lasts for him. There’s bound to be an element of darkness surrounding Michael that might help take the story forward.
Will the cast return for the last season?
The cast has repeatedly expressed their excitement over a new season, so mostly we can expect them all to return for the season that might really be the last one.
As of now, the project has met a dead end despite once being in the early stages of production. So we shouldn’t expect a teaser or a trailer anytime soon. But let’s hope that the makers come up with an interesting plotline to help take the show forward!
