Prison Break Revival

Prison Break Vets Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar Back for Fox Revival

The Prison population is exploding!

Robert Knepper and Rockmond Dunbar are the latest Prison Break faves to sign up for Fox’s upcoming revival, with the pair reprising their respective roles as jailbirds T-Bag and C-Note. They join previously announced PB vets Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies and Amaury Nolasco in the 9-episode continuation, which begins filming in Vancouver in April.

In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after “escape artist” Michael Scofield’s apparent death, Sara Tancredi (Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (to be played by Royal Pains‘ Mark Feuerstein). But when clues surface suggesting that Michael (Miller) may be alive, Sara teams with his brother Lincoln (Purcell) to engineer the series’ “biggest escape ever,” as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag (Knepper), C-Note (Dunbar) and Sucre (Nolasco), are pulled back into the action.

“The story unravels on an international landscape — it’s not a domestic [plot],” Fox co-chariman/CEO Dana Walden said. “We open on a very international contemporary-feeling story.”

The Fox drama’s original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner.

    Yes! This is a great week to be a Prison Break fan. Can’t wait to see this story unfold and hopefully when they start filming we get some reunion BTS shots :)

    Add Mahone and Kellerman and I’m happy!

    • Annie says:

      Yaassssss Mahone!!

    • PeacemakerRebel says:

      YES! Mahone and Kellerman are the two that aren’t already confirmed who I am very much hoping will return. I thought both of them were so interesting and complex, I would love to see them in action again.

    I wonder if they’ll address T-bag’s appearance on “Breakout Kings”. That was supposed to be a wrap up to his story. And wonder how the will bring him back into the fold now.

    I’m so glad Robert Knepper is back. You can’t have a Prison Break revival without T-Bag!!

  7. jerrired says:

    Yes!! All they need now is Paul Adelstein back and I’m happy.

    I only watched the first two seasons … did Frank Grillo ever return in later seasons? Would love to see him again.

    • Bwhit says:

      Nope. His character was done for in the season one finale and never was resurrected. He’s really fantastic on Kingdom though!
