When Michael Scofield got a happy ending at the end of Prison Break Season 5, everyone thought that this was it for the series. The fans certainly wanted more, but no possible outcome would let them continue this story and keep it interesting at the same time. However, talks of Season 6 started spreading, until it became a reality.
Yes, Prison Break is returning for a sixth season, and we’re looking at something that could make or break Prison Break as a series. Back in January of 2018, FOX confirmed that they were indeed working on Prison Break again and that they were excited for the future of the series.
Some of the stars have always been interested in the show returning and Wentworth Miller, for one, was always interested in this idea. “There’s always room for more, in my mind,” he said. “As long as it’s a story that’s worth telling, as long as it feels justified and cool and edgy.
“It has to be something that’s not going to let the fans down, that’s going to satisfy and surprise. I’m open to the conversation.”
As far as the plot for the upcoming season of Wentworth goes, we don’t know what we’re heading into. Some suggest that we will see a continuation, while others say that we’ll be going back to the very start of the series, which would be interesting if it is true.
The release date for the series has been a point of talk for a long time now, and even today, we’re not sure when the show will be coming back. Last year, it was hinted that Prison Break Season would be out in 2019. But, we don’t know much about it since then. I’m still hopeful for a 2019 release, but it could very well drag into 2020. In my opinion, a 2019 release makes sense, although I would not be shocked if the show does not return before 2020.

So the show is supposed to return which has been confirmed, but no confirmed release date has been evinced. However, we recently heard Michael Thorn saying that the show is into its initial production part. It is justified as they will have to figure out how to bring the story back from an ending. He also said, “It is going to be a new iteration of the show.” Which means, they will be finding another arc to explore and make sense at the same time.
If we talk about the release date, then it would be too early to jump on any conclusions as of now. Nevertheless, we would be glad if the show returns by the end of this year, as we are expecting it to return in the first half of 2019.
