AceShowbiz - Despite season 5 seemingly wrapping everything up definitively, the story of Michael and Lincoln on "Prison Break" may not be over, at least according to one of its stars. Dominic Purcell has taken to his Instagram account to hint that season 6 of the FOX series is moving forward.
"@prisonbreak #prisonbreak 6. In the works," the Lincoln depicter writes in the caption alongside an image of the "Prison Break" title credits. He doesn't offer further details, though. FOX, however, hasn't formally announced a sixth season renewal for the drama.
Should another season of "Prison Break" be coming, it will follow the series' 2017 revival which consisted of nine episodes. Premiering on April 4, the fifth season saw Jacob (Mark Feuerstein) finally being brought to justice for his crimes. Michael (Wentworth Miller), a free man, is living with Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) and his son, with Lincoln by his side.
Miller previously also hinted at a potential follow-up for the 2017 revival. "I wouldn't rule it out," Miller said back in April. "I feel like there's more story there and now we're talking about multiple generations. There are a lot of different directions that we could go, but I'm not in favor of exploring any of that unless there's something awesome that we can sink our teeth into."
He also suggested a completely off-the-wall set up for a sixth season. Shared on the actor's Instagram account, the idea involved a billionaire "uber fan" named Tag capturing Michael and Lincoln.
It's unknown whether a season 6 of "Prison Break" is happening or not. Fans seemingly opt not to expect too high since Purcell saying a new season is "in the works" could also mean anything from being pitched to FOX to starting production.
