“Prison Braek” may return for a sixth season, although nothing has been confirmed. Actor Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield) from the Paul Scheuring television drama said there’s always room for more.

Almost eight years after it aired its last episode, the series is once again making a comeback to TV screens. The fifth and current instalment of the series will be known as “Prison Break: Resurrection.” Michael Scofield, whose death was obvious in the show’s previous season, is said to be back in season 5. Furthermore, he’s got a new set of tattoos and has picked a new set of skills after spending so much time in a prison in Yemen.

Series creator Paul Scheuring has made it almost certain that the series’ upcoming instalment will be its final outing. “On some level, that break that we had of six-to-seven years in real life allowed Wentworth [Miller] to appreciate what he had with Michael Scofield," Scheuring told Entertainment Weekly.

“He said he wanted to inhabit it for a few more episodes,” Scheuring said further. “I said, 'Look, nobody wants to revive this thing for multiple seasons and that whole long slog, but if we can tell a concise, closed-ended story in nine or ten episodes, I'd be amenable to that.'”

That being said, Miller seems to be almost hopeful about a sixth season and believes there’s a chance for more. In an interview with Digital Spy at San Diego Comic-Con last year, Miller said that he’s open to another comeback.

“There’s always room for more, in my mind,” Miller said. “As long as it's a story that's worth telling, as long as it feels justified and cool and edgy,” he added.

Miller later hinted at a possible “conversation” in regards to the show’s renewal for yet another season to be purely based to how the current season is received.

Meanwhile, actress Sarah Wayne Callies did insist that the fifth season has been originally designed as a one-off. “This was pitched as, 'We're gonna do nine episodes, drop the mic and walk away' and I'm fine with that,” the actress told Digital Spy. "But it's also on a long list of things that are out of my control. That's just not up to me. But I'm taking it as it comes.”

Robert Knepper (T-Bag) recently gave a cue on William “Bill” Fichtner’s return as Alexander Mahone for a future season. "So if someday there's another chapter of this, maybe then Bill will be back,” Knepper said.

“Prison Braek” season 5, titled "Prison Break: Resurrection," has been slated to release on April 4 on Fox in the US. An Australia premiere date has yet to be announced.
