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?

Michael had a son that was the whole point of the sara break out so what if they do it when he's older, and he wants to find out about his dad so he goes back to places to find out! Even sucre's daughter might be init when she grows up! Just saying –  Niall bond Mar 16 at 4:29
    
I loved prison break and yeah we didn't see him die. just because they were at his grave site doesn't mean that they didn't fake his death after breaking Sarah out. I think there should be more. I cant get enough of prison break. –  Kristi Jun 28 at 17:46

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:

Michael hears of the bounty and devises plans for Sara's escape. In the end, knowing that he is dying from a brain tumor, Michael sacrifices himself for his brother, wife and child.
- Wikipedia

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.

I assume you meant "exceedingly *un*likely". I'd fix it, but it doesn't meet SO's 6-character-minimum-per-edit policy. :) –  Avner Shahar-Kashtan Sep 20 '13 at 5:37

"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.

The first part seems like from an external source entirely. Could you credit that source in anyway? –  Sonny Burnett Sep 19 '13 at 13:07

I wrote all of that by hand from data read from IMDB. –  wbogacz Sep 19 '13 at 13:10

From some sources I read, it stated Prison Break was only supposed to last for two seasons, but was found popular enough for Fox to continue the series for two more years. There was also litigation by a party who said Fox had stolen the idea for the series on life events which they brought forth in a story idea. This may have had an affect on series longevity, but nothing official to prove it. –  Paulster2 Sep 19 '13 at 14:25
    
Ohh!!! so this means we will not be able to see any more actions from Scofield. –  Neelesh Pandey Sep 22 '13 at 6:39

No. The the show is over and there are no plans for a season 5.

Any proofs for this claim? –  Sonny Burnett Sep 20 '13 at 8:21

@ChristianRau The shows last season was in 2009. imdb/wikipedia do not mentioning anything about new seasons. It is hard to prove a negative, but one can only assume there are no plans for more. –  Colin D Sep 20 '13 at 12:32

"It is hard to prove a negative" - True, yet as it stands your answer is a mere statement by you, on which we just have to rely, while the other answers at least present some reasonable arguments against a continuation. Even saying that there isn't any information anywhere about a new season would be more helpful than just you saying that the show is over. –  Sonny Burnett Sep 20 '13 at 12:37
    
@ChristianRau Thank you for the feedback. I will try and incorporate your advice into future answers. –  Colin D Sep 20 '13 at 12:48
    
But the show was great. –  Neelesh Pandey Sep 22 '13 at 6:42
