When your show is called Prison Break, the first season finale sort of writes itself. But now, a season later, what can you do for an encore?

Since the pickup was announced, a few details and clues have surfaced in the trades. For example, viewers can expect the addition of at least four cast members (two men, two women, none American), says Variety, and Scheuring hinted to the Hollywood Reporter that one of the brothers — either
Tonight at 8 pm/ET, the Prison Break on Fox continues, as Michael, Lincoln and the rest of the at-large Fox River 8 run for their lives. Among the fugitives is Tweener, played by Lane Garrison, who, alas, can't escape the heat in Texas, where the drama is now filming.
