The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies to Return For Prison Break Event Series


Sarah Wayne Callies, who played Lori Grimes on AMC's The Walking Dead, will once again join forces with DC's Legends of Tomorrow stars Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller in Prison Break.

Callies will reprise her role as Dr. Sara Tancredi from the series, which originally ran from 2005 to 2009.

In the drama's new chapter, which picks up after Michael's apparent death, Sara has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael's child with her new husband (previously announced guest star Mark Feuerstein, "Royal Pains"). When clues surface that suggest Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series' biggest escape ever.


The series is expected to return in 2017, with series creator Paul T. Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer. Recently, Prison Break network FOX had huge ratings success with a similar revival of Chris Carter's The X-Files.
