When Fox airs its nine-episode “Prison Break” revival next year, fans would be at the top of the world. [Spoiler Alert] However, “Prison Break” Season 5 may show Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) a changed man who has gone into the dark side.

Miller recently revealed that the biggest question hanging over the revival series is whether Michael after so many years remains the man he was. Will the audience still trust his character after eight years?

“Is he the man that they remember? Because it's been seven years and he's walked a dark road. He's been up to some not so nice things and there's a question as to whether or not he's even qualified to be considered a good man,” Miller teased Digital Spy.

He also admitted that his return to the prison setting provides a juicy element to the plot. Moreover, Miller believes a prison setting leads even good people do horrible things, again teasing that Michael may have drifted to the dark side.

“I think we all wonder what we're capable of, given the circumstances," he said. "And a prison setting provides those extreme set of circumstances, in which good people can do horrible things. That's where Michael Scofield has always lived and breathed. But now when we find him again, has he crossed the line in a way that he can never come back? That's at the heart of the story we're currently telling,” Miller added.

Miller believes that bringing back “Prison Break” is a risk worth taking as this time, the show would be leaving its US canvas for a complete international canvas. It would be on a much bigger scale. He said that acknowledging the revival series’ international felt important and also right as the show was so well-received all over the world.

“The original series was set in the US - that was our canvas. Now our canvas is global. That's about story, but I also feel like that is a nod to our international fanbase. The show has been so well-received all over the world that to acknowledge that international scope felt right and important,” Miller said.
