The American television soap opera thrilled many viewers between 2005 and 2009 and then in 2017. It will soon be back in a new format.
The famous American soap opera should rise from its ashes. But not necessarily in the way hoped for by fans of the first hour of prison Break. Its return will not be in continuity with the four previous seasons broadcast between 2005 and 2009. Also independent of the mini-series broadcast in 2017 and entitled Prison Break: Resurrectionit will be an unprecedented “new chapter”.
This remake, currently being developed by the Hulu platformwill take place according to the American magazine Variety in the universe of the famous Fox series but with a completely different cast. Exit then Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield) and Dominic Purcell (Lincoln Burrows). The main characters from the initial series will not take center stage.
As a reminder, the original series follows Lincoln Burrows, sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit, and his brother Michael Scofield, who develops a plan to help him escape from prison. A real audience success, the series received the Golden Globe for best dramatic television series for its first season.
prison Break was broadcast for five seasons in the United States and then adapted in multiple countries including France. The consecration was such at the time that a TV movie The Final Break and a low-budget spin-off series Prison Break: Proof of Innocence were born from it. At the same time, the series had also inspired a video game, online webisodes, a magazine and a novel. For the most nostalgic and impatient, all seasons are available for streaming on the Disney + platform.
