Video: Prison break season 5 reboot
Fox channel has released the first teaser for the upcoming Prison Break series, which is a continuation of the drama series that ran for four seasons on Fox from 2005 to 2009. Wentworth Miller reprises his role as Michael Scofield, with the action reigniting in Morocco when clues surface that the previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may still be alive. His brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and wife Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) team up to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, enlisting even more familiar faces in the process.
The original series got off to a buzzworthy start in its first season, but after the titular prison break the writers had trouble finding ways to keep the story moving in a compelling—and conceivable—manner. But the prospect of bringing everyone back for a new chapter is certainly enticing, and series creator Paul T. Scheuring reprises his role as writer/showrunner so the whole gang is really back together.
“Lavi will play Sheba, a beautiful and smart operator/fixer/activist who becomes involved with Lincoln. Benedict is A&W, a crazed villainess who is unconcerned about her physical well-being but efficient in completing her deadly goals. Sharma will play Sid, who’s artsy, wired– and in prison. His offense, despite what his docket says, is solely being gay.”
Rick Yune (Marco Polo) will also join the cast as Ja, “a Korean identity thief whose disheveled appearance belies his genius.” August Prew (Kick-Ass 2) will play Whip, “who is funny, crazy, and pretty damn sharp.” Australian actor Steve Mouzakis (I, Frankenstein) is cast as Van Gogh, “a bad-ass nut-job.” Amin El Gamal (The Newsroom) will play a “heavily recurring role” as a mystery character named Cyclops.
Yes, we will find out our air date next week. https://t.co/JskfhLOfHu
