PRISON BREAK - Returns for a Nine-Episode Event on 2nd Avenue
PRISON BREAK is back and ready for its biggest escape yet.
Let us take a pause from movies for a while and talk about the return of a hit television series created by Paul Scheuring - Prison Break. It was originally aired by Fox and made its initial run in 2005 and lasted up to 2009, having at least four very successful seasons. This April 2017, Prison Break returns for its fifth season with nine (9) heart-pounding episodes.
In the Philippines, the all-new PRISON BREAK returns exclusively on 2nd Avenue.
In the new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar, and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired from 2005-2009.
The original action drama centered on Michael Scofield (Miller, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, Lincoln Burrows (Purcell, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison.
In the new series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies, Colony, The Walking Dead), Michael’s wife until he was presumed dead, reunite to engineer the biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre (Nolasco, Telenovela), T-Bag (Knepper, Heroes) and C-Note (Dunbar, The Mentalist), are pulled back into the action.
PRISON BREAK was an immediate critical and ratings hit, garnering Golden Globe® Award nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, return to executive-produce the new series.
The premiere of PRISON BREAK was held last April 5, Wednesday via satellite at 3 PM and primetime at 9 PM. It was really thrilling and I just can't wait for the next episode to the aired.
