One of our favourite shows, Prison Break, is all set to get a new season. Actor Dominic Purcell recently revealed that the sixth season of the hit series is finally going to happen and fans are ecstatic! The actor, who plays the inmate Lincoln Burrows, took to his Instagram to announce the news, albeit in a cryptic post. The post merely hinted at an upcoming season.
““Rumour number one: I’m old? Yes, I’m 50! Rumour number two: I’m bald? No, I have a full head of hair but the people demand I shave it. Rumour number three: Another season of PB (Prison Break)? Yes…” he penned on the social media platform. He also made sure to address the most important rumour of them all. “Rumour number four: Do I like humans? No! Not on mass, definitely not.”
A similarly mysterious message was shared by Purcell who teased “#October” as a possible initiation date for season six. Fans were eager to know about a possible sixth season and the actor had addressed the potential for another season.
“I get smashed with ‘When is Prison Break 6 happening?’ posts. What I can promise is this: We are all in agreement that if the story is worthy, it will get made.” He went on to add, “Now with the horror of this virus, the calamity of it all drills inside me a new focus, a steely resolve with Prison Break 6. I’m very optimistic with social distancing and a fierce adherence to expert opinion on how to beat this catastrophic unprecedented event. We all, as one will be victorious over coronavirus. Corporations such as Netflix are desperate for content.”
Purcell’s apparent confirmation of Prison Break’s sixth season, however, is at odds with previous comments from others involved in the popular series, according to another portal. Fox Entertainment’s CEO Charlie Collier, in a 2019 interview,revealed that the network had no plans for the show’s return.
Collier stated, “There’s no plan right now to revive Prison Break or any of the other franchises, but when the creators come with a story that they think is the right time to tell, we are so ready to listen because those are some franchises of which I’m so proud and feel so fortunate that they’re in our stable.
