I am a big fan of "Prison Break" and want Michael Scofield in action again. So please can anybody tell me, will I be able to see the gang again in action or not? Are there any plans for Season 5?
Aside from all the sources that may already corroborate that Prison Break has reached its ending in totality, e.g., IMDB/Wikipedia, it seems exceedingly unlikely that we would see Michael Scofield in action again, as the final episode of Prison break tells us:
We don't see him die, but we do see Sara and his child at his gravestone, assuredly marking his demise. When we also consider all the other loose ends tied up (other prisoners dying, Lincoln's absolution, deconstruction of 'The Company'), it lends for little further possible plot to continue on.
Update: Prison break going to be revived
"Prison Break", a television series on the Fox Network, ended its run in 2009, after 4 seasons. It concerned the breakout of a group of felons from a prison in Chicago, and the ensuing run to evade capture by the FBI and international agents. It starred: Wentworth Miller, who has gone on to other roles, though, decidedly few; Dominic Purcell who played his incarcerated brother, who has moved into motion pictures in a number of action thrillers, and guest television spots; Robert Knepper, who had a number of television projects since Prison Break, also a number of films; William Fichtner, who played the FBI agent in pursuit, has a currently-active television series "Crossing Lines", and a number of film roles since. Long story short, I don't think the show "Prison Break" is on anyone's radar for a comeback.
UPDATE: Today, 2015/01/18, it was revealed that:
...“There is some speculation in the press about Prison Break, which honestly was slightly news to us…. Although we’ve made it clear over the years to the studio that we would bring Prison Break back in a heartbeat...It’s probably the perfect event series. If our old partners in that show are interested, that would be great. But at the moment, we have nothing else to report.”
Purcell and Miller are currently recurring in their roles as villains Heat Wave and Captain Cold on The Flash on The CW. That series was renewed for a second season earlier this week.
Submitting this as a NEW answer, since it clearly contradicts the first, based on information just received - after an additional 2 years.
According to information released August 6, 2015, Prison Break will be back for a season of 10 further episodes.
