“Prison Break” Season 5 new poster is now out following several spoilers and updates in the recent weeks.
Seven years after Michael Scofield sacrificed himself in the Prison Breakseries finale, the tattooed genius will be back for Fox’s nine-episode revival that finds him — what else? — breaking out of prison.
As EW first revealed, when viewers next see Michael (Wentworth Miller), he’s an inmate in a Middle Eastern prison called Ogygia. If that sounds familiar, that’s because the entire season is a nod to the Odyssey — Michael, in this case, is the embattled hero trying to make his way back home to his wife (Sarah Wayne Callies) and child.
THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BREAKING OUT OF FOX RIVER
But there’s a big difference between breaking out of Fox River and trying to escape the Midnight Express-like hellscape in a war-torn country, hence the tagline in the poster exclusively revealed below: “First, it was a prison. Now, it’s a nation.”
Can Michael make it back home? In a reversal of roles, it’s up to his brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) to help. We’ll find out if he’s up to the task when Prison Break returns April 4 on Fox.
