WATCH: Prison Break season 5 teases shocking return of the ‘dead’ Michael
Prison Break has heavily teased the shocking return of the apparently dead Michael in the upcoming fifth series of the show.
The first four series of Prison Break aired between 2005 and 2009 and seemingly ended with the death of joint protagonist Michael after electrocuting himself to save his other half Sara. The new revival teaser suggests this wasn’t the case, and shows Sara learning the news that Michael may still be alive:
Michael being alive is an interesting twist in itself, as the character appeared to be dying from a brain tumour even before he sacrificed himself for Sara.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming miniseries “…picks up after Michael’s apparent death […] When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees — T-Bag, C-Note and Sucre — are pulled back into the action.”
In the teaser, executive producer Dawn Olmstead says: “All the people you loved from the original Prison Break play a significant role in helping Michael”.
