Prison Break season five: Official trailer and broadcast details

Prison Break 2016

Prison Break returns to our screens after a seven-year break.

After plenty of waiting, Prison Break fans will finally see what happens next when the show returns for its fifth season during the 2016 mid-season in the US.

The show burst onto the scene back in 2005 with a premise that was as absurd as it was exciting and the initial 22-episode run was event television at its finest.

The show never quite managed to maintain the heights of its debut season but there was always plenty to enjoy, and season four contained much of the magic that made fans fall in love with the premise and the characters.

Considering how things finished back in 2009, you would be forgiven for thinking Prison Break had run its course, but a show famous for its twists and turns has pulled another proverbial rabbit out of the hat to get all the main players back together again.

Following the news that Prison Break would return to Fox in the mid-season, a trailer has now been released giving a tantalising glimpse of what is to come for Michael Scofield, Lincoln Burrows and company.
