In conjunction with this week's TCA presentations, FOX has released a sneak peek trailer for the return of Prison Break, returning for a fifth season after over seven years off the air. This time, Michael and Lincoln won't just have to break out of a prison in Yemen, they'll have to "break out of the country itself," as star Wentworth Miller describes.

The video shows behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Miller and co-star Dominic Purcell (both of whom also appear on The CW's Legends of Tomorrow), along with some of the other returning castmembers. "I think this is going to be even better than the original Prison Break," Purcell enthusiastically says.

The series doesn't hit FOX until 2017, as it's a mid-season "event series," similar to how they revived The X-Files in early 2016. The official description follows.

In the thrilling new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on FOX from 2005-2009. The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, "The Loft"), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow"), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison. In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies, "Colony," "The Walking Dead"), Michael's wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series' biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary's most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco, "Telenovela"), T-BAG (Knepper, "Heroes") and C-NOTE (Dunbar, "The Mentalist"), are pulled back into the action. "Prison Break" was an immediate critical and ratings hit when it premiered on FOX in the fall of 2005, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.
