Prison Break Returns Sara

When Prison Break Returns, Will Sara? Sarah Wayne Callies Yet to Be Asked

When Fox’s Prison Break revival (somehow) resurrects Michael Scofield, will his bride be waiting for him?

Thus far, the only cast announced for the 10-episode event series are Wentworth Miller and his TV bro Dominic Purcell. And while faithful fans presume that Michael’s wife Sara simply must be a part of the reunion, nothing is certain. Yet.

“No one’s asked me yet, so I don’t know,” Prison Break original cast member Sarah Wayne Callies told TVLine Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, where she was promoting USA Network’s Colony. “If we can find a way to honor [Sara and Michael] by telling a beautiful continuing story — and my bosses [on Colony] let me do another show — I would love to. There is such a long list of things that are out of my hands, but my heart is very, very excited about it.”

(As Callies previously noted for us at Comic-Con, Universal Cable Productions’ Dawn Parouse Olmstead is her current boss and was an EP on Prison Break, so: “If there’s anybody who has incentive to let me sneak off of set for a little bit and cross over to another lot, it would be Dawn.”)

When last we visited the Prison Break world, Michael and Sara had wed at a seaside ceremony, only to see the bride hauled away by cops and hurried into the hoosegow. The Final Break straight-to-DVD finale followed the efforts of Michael, Lincoln et al to spring Sara from her unjust incarceration — though it would require Michael ultimately sacrificing his life to do so.

As previously announced (but not reiterated enough), that significant matter of Michael’s death will be addressed/worked around in reviving the drama.

Prison Break was extraordinary,” Callies shared at TCA. “The single most amazing thing that has probably ever happened to me, or ever will, in my career, is the fans kicking up such a fuss during Season 3 [that] they had to bring me back in Season 4. That’s unprecedented.”

    I remember at comi con a few weeks ago she said that a Fox exec told her to expect a call.

    I think I’m gonna get that final DVD from Netflix and watch it again :-)

  3. I am sure they will screw Sarah Wayne Callies over the way they did in season three of Prison Break, just about the time I stopped watching it. That was a crappy hand they dealt her just because she was pregnant.

    I hope not. One of the worst TV characters ever.

    Bring back Sarah!!!! I gotta rewatch the whole series right after I finish watching The Americans.

  11. Nicole says:

    I think one of my favourite moments from that entire series was when michael sees sara for the first time after thinking she was dead. He’s in the room and she walks in….magic. They had the best chemistry. She has to be in it or at least be a recurring character!!

  12. MiSa Fan says:

    Really hope they ask her back. I love the character and the actress.

  13. kantu Michael says:

    not sure Michael died in the final break, that paper he always left behind in form of a bird, meaning he was near by. don’t think that he died. but I want to see what the company does this time. or which prison dis time. what happens to syla, agent Mahoni, sucrea. oh my God. how about T.bag?
