Sarah Wayne Callies Joins FOX's Prison Break Revival

See what she's up to now

Megan Vick

Sarah Wayne Callies will be helping Wentworth Miller break out of prison again.

FOX announced Friday thatThe Walking Dead alum will reprise her role as Dr. Sara Trancedi and rejoin Miller and Dominic Purcell in the Prison Breakrevival. According to the press statement, the revival will pick up after Michael Scofield's (Miller) apparent death. Sara has moved on and is raising their child with her new husband (Mark Feuerstein). "When clues surface that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln (Purcell) to engineer the series' biggest escape ever."

Guess which Prison Break star was confused for an actual convict

The Hollywood Reporter adds that Callies is just one many original cast members expected to return to the series. The series is also being helmed by a familiar face--original showrunner Paul T. Scheuring is penning the script and serving as executive producer along with Neal Moritz, Mary Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead.

For those worried that a return to Prison Break will affect her status on USA's alien drama Colony, don't. The actress told THR that FOX is working with the Colony production team to work out scheduling so that Callies can do both. "There's a lot of goodwill and a lot of hard work on both sides," she said.

Prison Break begins production in Vancouver later this year and is expected to air during the 2016-17 season, but no official premiere date has been announced.
