Original stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are returning for 10 new episodes in 2017
Fox has released the first trailer for its Prison Break revival series set to air in 2017.
Original stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell have reprised their roles for the 10-episode “limited series”, joined once again by fellow original cast members Sarah Wayne Callies, Robert Knepper, Paul Adelstein and Rockmond Dunbar.
Prison Break‘s creator Paul Scheuring has returned as writer-showrunner and filming has been taking place in Vancouver as well as the Moroccan cities of Rabat, Casablanca and Ouarzazate.
When Fox commissioned the revival series last year, the network’s co-chairman Dana Walden said: “I would describe it as a bit of a sequel. It picks up the characters several years after we left them in the last season of the show.”
Asked how the revival would deal with the fact that one of Prison Break‘s main characters died at the end of the original series, Walden replied: “What [Paul] pitched to us was a very logical and believable – in the world of Prison Break – explanation for why our characters are alive and still moving around the world.”
Prison Break originally ran on Fox for four seasons between 2005 and 2009. The series revolved around two brothers played by Miller and Purcell: one sentenced to death for a crime he did commit, the other hatching an elaborate plan to help him escape from jail and clear his name.
