'Prison Break' Is Set To Return, Complete With Original Cast


Forget re-runs and stalking Wentworth Miller's virtuous social media accounts because Michael Scofield is coming back into our lives and onto our television, for real.

On Tuesday, Fox unveiled the trailer for Prison Break's new season scheduled for 2017, eight years after the last episode went to air.

The two-minute trailer reveals Michael, who was thought to be dead may still be alive. This time, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) is set to return the favour by getting his little brother out of a prison overseas.

But it's not without pain and struggle.

Lincoln reunites with Sara, who is living a quiet life with her young son (from her marriage with Michael) upon receiving the information from ex-inmate T-Bag (Robert Knepper) that Michael isn't dead.

But can villainous, weasely T-Bag be trusted?

There's only one way to find out.

People are clearly psyched about its return, with Twitter going just slightly bananas.

Watch the trailer above, and just try not to tear up during a particularly adorable brotherly moment.
