All the Prison Break fans are waiting for an update for a while now. As you might know, the Fox Television drama has five seasons so far; however, fans are expecting more content. But, with the whole world being on lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, there isn’t really any hope left for the next season.
Dominic Purcell’s Address Gave The Show A Revival
The previous Prison Break seasons were released during 2005 and 2009. However, season 4 almost got canceled. In the end, the team behind the show aired the fourth season as well.
Later, in 2017, the superhit drama made a comeback. Prison Break season 4 was an eight-episode installment. However, there is no information about the upcoming season. According to the rumors, the next Prison Break season will be launched by a Disney-FOX merge.
Dominic Purcell played Lincoln Burrows in the show, and according to the one of his Instagram posts, season 6 is on the way.
“I get smashed with ‘when is #prisonbreak 6 happening’. What I can promise is this. We are all in agreement that if the story is worth it will get made,” Purcell communicated via Instagram.

“Now with the horror of this #virus the calamity of it all drills inside me a new focus a steely resolve with PRISON BREAK 6– I’m very optimistic with #socialdistancing and a fierce adherence to expert opinion on how to beat this catastrophic, unprecedented event, we all as one will be victorious over #coronavirus — corporations such as #netflix are desperate for content,” he continued.
On top of all that, Purcell also shared a video. The video reveals a scene of him with Wentworth Miller’s Michael. However, the revival doesn’t stand well with the critics’ opinion. Based on the rating on the Rotten Tomatoes, there was only 55 percent approval regarding this move. But, the fans’ support was of 75 percent rating. And what the audience wants, that’s what they get.
