Fox’s “Prison Break” season 5 has not even been released and talks of a possible Season 6 are already making rounds. The popular TV show recently released its official trailer for its upcoming Season 5 where it was shown that Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is still alive but imprisoned in a Yemen prison. It has been reported that writers of the show are already contemplating another season. Of course that largely depends on the ratings and success of Season 5.

Fans will have to wait till 2017, before Season 5 hits TV screens. Shooting has already started and lead actors have confirmed their return. As per Prison Break Writers’ Twitter account, good rating of Season 5 will definitely improve the chances of a return. They recently conducted a Q&A session where ardent “Prison Break” fans posted questions on their favourite show. One of them asked if Season 6 is a possibility or not. This is what Prison Break Writers had to say.

[Spoiler Alert] Going by the Season 5 trailer, it seems the show has all the ingredients of success as Michael’s brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) joins hands with Michael’s friend Sucre (Amaury Nolasco) and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) to devise an incredibly escape strategy to free Michael.

Of course Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), who is now settled with new husband Scott Ness (Mark Feuerstein), will play her part in the escape. Also in focus would be Michael and Sara’s son, Michael Jr. (Christian Michael Cooper) who may prove to be instrumental in reuniting Michael and Sara.

The show won’t be confined to the US but will also take viewers to Middle-Eastern countries and that’s surely going to delight fans. The case is currently filming in Morocco.

“Prison Break” has emerged as the buzziest program as its Season 5 trailer garnered 10.3 million engagements across digital platforms, according to Variety. From May 16-22, the trailer generated 1.5 million reactions from fans on Facebook. On YouTube, the video was ranked the most-watched trailer with more than 7 million views.
