Plot Synopsis

The brother of a young man scheduled to die on death row is convinced he did not commit the crime and gets himself incarcerated alongside his brother in order to break him out. Nearly eight years after the fourth season ended, PRISON BREAK returned for its fifth season on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on FOX. It's been seven years since Michael Scofield was presumed dead, but when clues suggest that he might still be alive, Lincoln Burrows reunites with Sara Tancredi to help track down the truth. The path leads Lincoln to Yemen, as Sucre, T-Bag, and C-Note are pulled back into the action to engineer the series' biggest escape ever. As Lincoln and C-Note search for the "Sheik of Light," Michael and his cellmate, Whip, attempt an escape from Ogygia. Meanwhile, Sara's investigation into Michael's reappearance leads her to the state department and an uneasy reunion with Paul Kellerman.
