Fox Boss Announces Prison Break's Return ... and Finale
Michael and Lincoln soon will be able to finally catch their breath. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly announced at Tuesday's TCA Winter Press Tour that "this will be the last year" of Prison Break.
While citing the series' four-year run as one for the "win column," Reilly acknowleged, "It got to a point where a lot of the stories had been told."
Prison Break aired its 16th episode/annual "winter finale" on Dec. 22. At least six more hours are set to kick off Friday, April 17 (after Sarah Connor unspools eight straight new episodes), but that count could be upped to eight so as to properly finish the serialized saga. Said Reilly, "We want to finish strong."
