It's official: Sarah Wayne Callies will return for the Prison Break Limited Series.
Much like 24: Live Another Day and the recent success of The X-Files, Prison Break will come back for a limited series of 9 episodes, since leaving the air in 2009 after four seasons.
Callies will reprise her role as Dr. Sara Tancredi, who appeared in Seasons 1 & 2 before being briefly decapitated in Season 3 and coming back for Season 4 with her head back on her shoulders.
Sarah Wayne Callies will return alongside Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell as brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows when filming begins in April in Vancouver.
If you're like me and wondering how in the hell Michael Scofield will return to the series after dying in the series finale, well here is the description for the new episodes.
In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after Michael’s apparent death, Sara has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband. When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.
New husband? Yep, Sara gets remarried and he will be played by Mark Feuerstein, who was last seen in Royal Pains.
If not for Prison Break, Sarah Wayne Callies is also known for her role in the first three seasons of The Walking Dead as Lori Grimes and currently stars on Colony.
Prison Break is expected to return to FOX in late 2016.
I'm torn between being excited about this return and also dreading it. It ended nicely and, sure the 24 and X-Files returns worked, but is Prison Break going to be exception?
I sure hope not!
