In this post, we are going to talk about Prison Break season 6 release date, cast, and updates. As we know, the show has been revived once, and it was due to the urge of fans. More importantly, the first four seasons were released continuously in each consecutive year. The show initially broadcasted between the years 2005 and 2008, and then it was discontinued. The show has been on FOX, from the beginning.
After the cancellation, the show was again picked up for a fifth season, which was released in April 2017. Nonetheless, the episode count was reduced to nine, which was the lowest among all the season. But it was decided the show will only have the fifth season and then they will not continue the show. Even till August 2017, there was no plan to renew the show for another season.
Afterward, on 12 December 2017, Dominic Purcell announced via Instagram that the sixth season of Prison Break is being produced. That would have been the biggest relief for Prison Break fans because they had lost all the hope of reviving the show again. After a month, FOX itself confirmed that the sixth season is being developed!
So, when will the next season release? Taking an example of the fifth season, which was renewed in January 2016 and released in April 2017. Therefore, we can assume that the sixth season might release in April 2019! But it is just a prediction, Fox might have a different idea, or the progress of the work might also affect the release.
Furthermore, there is nothing provided officially about the number of episodes or what will be the next season about. Nevermind, we can presume that the number of episodes might be the same as the previous season. Take a look at the main cast below!
- Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield
- Dominic Purcell as Lincoln Burrows
- Sarah Wayne Callies as Sara Tancredi-Scofield
- Rockmond Dunbar as C-Note
- Robert Knepper as T-Bag
- Amaury Nolasco as Sucre
- Inbar Lavi as Sheba

Well, we have got quite a few details about the next season, if not much. We knew that the sixth season was announced back in January 2018. But as FOX and Disney were merging, the focus deviated from the show. However, reports suggest that the work on the show has been resumed, which is good news of course.
Also, writer Scheuring informed that he completed writing the first episode of the sixth season, and he also stated that the show would go back where it started. After his statement, many rumors and theories are spreading, although we are not sure any of them are true.

Everyone out there is waiting for the sixth and last season of Prison Break, and it is already under production. It has been a while since the show has started shooting, and we might even get some more details soon. However, more points that are necessary to discuss could be a plot twist which might make the last season more interesting than any other.
It is expected that Michael Scofield might be released from prison in the next season. Well, the show title Prison Break is all about getting out of prison in any way possible, and now it is teased that it might come true. However, it would not be a piece of cake for him, as he has to adapt the environment of the outer world after being in jail for so long. It reminds me of the story of OITNB where the last season also showed how hard was it for Piper to adjust in the world that has changed so much during her jail sentence.
