Fox Boss Announces Prison Break's Return... and Finale - Featured

Michael and Lincoln soon will be able to finally catch their breath. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly announced at Tuesday's TCA Winter Press Tour that "this will be the last year" of Prison Break.

While citing the series' four-year run as one for the "win column," Reilly acknowledged, "It got to a point where a lot of the stories had been told."

Prison Break aired its 16th episode/annual "winter finale" on Dec. 22. At least six more hours are set to unspool starting April 17, but that count could be upped to eight so as to properly finish the serialized saga. Said Reilly, "We want to finish strong."

I'm glad that they are ending the series on a good note, as these last 5 or 6 episodes have been phenomenal, and it's nice to see that the series is not going to be drawn out. However, the new Friday time slot is ridiculous.

awww...i wont be able to see Wentworth Miller anymore :( But it is good that it isn't being drawn out like other shows. They do that and most shows get boring and predictable.

I think that now the decision has been made they can work on winding the show up comprehensively and give us proper explanations.. This was pretty inevitable, imo, there wasn't much left to tell.. A great show once, it's still good, but its time has come

I think this is what most people expected. The show has had a terrific run and fans will be sad to see it go, but the time has come for things to end. Right decision.
