Fans have been anxious for Prison Break to return — and as of tonight, the long wait is over!

The nine-episode series has been retitled Prison Break: Ressurection — and according to the synopsis, “It’s been seven years since Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) was presumed dead, but when clues suggest that he might still be alive, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) reunites with Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) to help track down the truth. The path leads Lincoln to Yemen, as Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), T-Bag (Robert Knepper) and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) are pulled back into the action to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever in the all-new ‘Ogygia’ event series premiere episode of Prison Break.”

“With the possibility that his brother might be alive and Lincoln decides to investigate that thoroughly, there’s a sense of hope that’s restored,” Dominic previously told Deadline.

Wentworth chimed in with, “You could take the position that Michael died in the end of original series. The man they meet in these nine episodes is someone different.”
