“Prison Break” may have been officially off the air for almost a decade, but the upcoming revival is still getting a lot of hype. With the original cast portraying their roles and a new jail to break out of, the upcoming fifth season is sure to get fans and non-fans hooked.

A new promo has just been released for the upcoming season of “Prison Break.” While the clip itself was short at just 30 seconds, it did reveal a lot, including a theme that is likely to be discussed on the show. “What was my father like?” Michael’s son asks in the opening of the trailer, which can be watched below.

“Your father was like a storm,” Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) nostalgically answers. “Appearing suddenly and disappearing just as quickly.” The young boy presses on and asks whether storms can come back. “The question is if they come back, is it the same storm?” she then rhetorically asks.

It is no secret that Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will be returning to the small screen to reprise their roles as brother-duo Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows respectively. Joining them are several other members of the main cast, including Amaury Nolasco as Fernando Sucre and Robert Knepper as Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell. With the help of the original cast, a better season has been promised.

“All the people you loved from the original ‘Prison Break’ play a significant role in helping Michael [escape],” producer Dawn Olmstead said during the first clip reveal in August. It was also then that Purcell promised that the revival is “going to be better than the original.”

Despite the work that undoubtedly went into season 5, getting it started was actually not that difficult. “Wentworth and I were working on ‘The Flash,’ and we hadn’t seen each other for quite some time,” Purcell told TV Guide. “[That] we just started to talk about ‘Prison Break.’ Before we knew it, we were at Fox talking to them about [revisiting] the show.” Purcell then admitted that the idea was given the green light fairly quickly.

The 46-year-old actor also gave credit to Netflix for generating the needed buzz around “Prison Break.” He said that the original run is one of the most watched TV series on the streaming site. Not only did this get veteran vans hooked on the show again, but it also made the show available to a new generation.

“Prison Break” season 5 will debut on US network Fox on April 4. Australian audiences can catch the same on TEN.
