There have been much speculations around the premiere date for Season 5 , but the writers recently held a Q&A session to drop hints on what to expect.
According to a Den of Geek report, the writers said that most of the work for the season is complete. It only requires a bit of fine-tuning to make things perfect.
The writers also noted that there is no possibility of William Fichtner to return as Agent Mahone, or of Jodi Lyn O’Keefe as Gretchen Morgan. Moreover, the new season will now have nine episodes instead of the previously announced 10 episodes.
Michael Alive and Locked Up in Yemeni Jail
Michael, who was presumably dead, will be the focus of the upcoming series. The new Season 5 trailer shows he is alive and was working for an organization. The season will also have ISIS and ISA in the mix. However, he ends up in a Yemeni jail and realizes he was set up.
With the help of his brother Lincoln, Michael will plan an escape. It will be the show’s biggest prison break till date. According to creator Paul T Scheuring, the filming of the fifth season took place simultaneously in Morocco and Vancouver over 13 to 15 weeks, the Deadline reported.
Prison Break Season 5 premiere date has been scheduled on April 4 at 9 p.m.
