At the end of next month, Prison Break finally bids goodbye. But we've mentioned this all too many times, and as the first of the last six episodes airs this Friday, we've set our mind to it - the end is coming, the end is coming. Or not.
Now, there are reports that Fox is going to release Prison Break - The Final Break, a direct-to-DVD feature-length ditty that promises to put the exclamation point at the end of a four-year-long sentence. The feature, which hits stores on July 21, will round off the events of the series finale, which airs on May 15 - and, perhaps, add a few more zingers. In their words, again: The shocking series conclusion was just the beginning. Secrets revealed and mysteries solved. The truth will blow you away.
So, fans, add one more to your shopping list - the season 4 DVD will hits stores roughly two weeks after the series finale. The feature, which will be released in DVD and Blu-Ray formats, are now available for pre-ordering at Amazon, and apart from the usual surround sound and subtitles, the Blu-Ray release will feature an extra featurette, entitled The Old Ball and Chain & Free. Then again, this is still early information, and details on the release are still subject to change. The way things are going, this isn't a rumor anymore - at least we won't be kept hanging for some reason.
Then again, there's the return of Prison Break this week, kicking off with the episode we left it off on Friday at 8pm, immediately followed by the first new episode at 9pm. Now that Lincoln and Michael's mother has resurfaced as another surprise pawn in the game to recover the Scylla, or take down the Company, or other things - ahh, stuff to watch, stuff to watch.
