Wentworth Miller teases return in 'Prison Break' revival

2015-07-16
Former Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has teased that he could well be returning for the show's potential revival series. The 42-year-old - who came out as gay in 2013 in an open letter protesting against Russian anti-gay laws - teased fans that despite his character Michael Schofield's apparent demise in the series' final episodes, he was involved in "conversations" about the show's return. PRISON BREAK: Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is a desperate man with a plan to save the life of his brother, who is on death row in PRISON BREAK, premiering with a special two-hour event Monday, Aug. 29 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and airing in its regular time period begining Monday, Sept. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  Asked whether Fox's continuation of the action drama - which ran for four seasons between 2005 and 2009 - was still in the pipeline, Miller told TVLine: “That’s in the offing, yeah." “Conversations are happening,” he added, before teasing that everything he said was “assuming Michael is still alive.” His co-star Dominic Purcell pointed out that the show had a history of bringing supposedly-dead characters back onscreen, following Sara Tancredi's (Sarah Wayne Callies) apparent death in season 3 and subsequent return in season 4. "I mean, Sara was dead," he said. "The [concept] that I've heard is completely brilliant, so people will be fine." While Prison Break's potential return is still in the early stagesit is thought any revival will be in a similar fashion to what Fox did with last year's one-off 24 comeback, 24: Live Another Day. But honestly, we'll take whatever Wentworth screen time we can get.
