It's finally April, and that means one of the most highly-anticipated TV events of the year is upon us. After being off the air since 2009, Prison Break is set to return to FOX on Tuesday night.
Unlike a reboot, this event will be a continuation of the original series. All of the original stars - including Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, and Sarah Wayne Callies - have returned for the nine-episode event.
If you've been wondering what the new season will look like, and can't seem to wait until Tuesday night, you're in luck. FOX has just released the first five minutes of the series premiere online.

The clip begins with Michael re-introducing himself to the world. He reveals that he died seven years ago, but it's clear that he's very much alive. This opening dialogue will hit fans, as he talks about all of the people he left behind.
The rest of the episode will air on Tusday, April 4 at 8pm ET on FOX. Be sure to tune in to the premiere, as Michael brings everyone together for one more escape.
The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), 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 new 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 presumed dead, reunite to engineer the 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.
