Michael Scofield and his fellow escapees' journey for freedom might escape television permanently. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that FOX network might have come to a decision in extending "Prison Break" season four production for two additional episodes, which may serve as a conclusion to the four-year drama series.
Furthermore, the site details that the action drama series' cast have been told by FOX about the network's plan. However, "Prison Break" writer and FOX itself have not given any statement yet about the extra episodes and the speculation circulating around.
The Hollywood Reporter further speculates if the bonus episodes are not aired this season, FOX might run them next spring as a two-hour "event" next season, or the network will make them as a bonus feature on the "Prison Break" DVD.
Despite all the speculations, the fact is "Prison Break" rating numbers have dropped with each season since its first. Averaging only 8.2 million viewers last year, the series' rating slipped down to only 6.4 million viewers this season. This week, the series has begun to produce the final episode of fourth season which is scheduled to air on December 22.
