After nearly 8 years of being off the air, ‘Prison Break’ is back! HollywoodLife.com talked EXCLUSIVELY with Wentworth Miller about Michael’s ‘dark’ return. Plus, does he think there should be more episodes after the revival is over?
Michael Scofield is alive! Somehow he made it out of that explosion at the end of Prison Break: The Final Break. HollywoodLife.com talked to Wentworth Miller, 44, at a PaleyFest event celebrating Prison Break’s return about Michael in the revival, and he teases that he may not be the same man we know and love.
“That is a great question, when we find Michael, is he the same Michael that we remember?” Wentworth told us EXCLUSIVELY. “It is what we spend nine episodes answering. He has his reunion with Lincoln, he works to have a reunion with Sara, but will they even recognize him when they see him? Is he worthy of these relationships? Because for seven years he has been walking a dark road and doing some not so nice things! Has he crossed a line? That is the story we investigate!”
There’s another questions fans already have, even before the 9-part revival series premieres on April 4: Will there be more Prison Break? Wentworth admitted to HollywoodLife.com that he is open to doing more episodes.
“It’s possible that this could be the end,” he said. “It does feel like a nice place to sign off but if Paul [Scheuring] or FOX came up with a brilliant extra chapter that felt like it was worth our time and passion and also enjoyable to the fans, something that would stand along side that has come before then I am open to that possibility.”
The Prison Break revival will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on FOX. The revival series also features the return of Dominic Purcell, 47, as Lincoln Burrows, Sarah Wayne Callies, 39, as Sara Tancredi, Amaury Nolasco, 46, as Sucre, Robert Knepper, 57, as T-Bag, Rockmond Dunbar, 44, as C-Note, and Paul Adelstein, 47, as Paul Kellerman. The original series aired from 2004 to 2009. A special movie, Prison Break: The Final Break, aired in 2009. The revival will pick up 7 years after the events of the movie.
