Is the end of Prison Break near?

Fox's Prison Break was a smash hit during its first season, but ever since has been declining in the ratings (and, some could argue, creatively...).


Now in its 4th season, it is a possibility that Break will come to a conclusion.


The writers of the program have been informed to pitch ideas for 2 additional episodes...and the speculation is that these episodes will serve as a conclusion to the series.


Prison Break is not currently a part of FOX's midseason schedule, so these 2 episodes would have to air as either a special, or be held for the Fall.


Guess we should have added Prison Break to our Cancellation Danger Zone.


So...would you be satisfied with a 2-hour conclusion for the series or do you think the show's got more seasons left in it?

It had better end, it'd be a bit of stretch to add anything else onto it. Season 1 was great, 2 was good to decent, 3 was pretty mediocre to poor and 4 has been good to decent again. I'll be glad if it ends, I just hope they work out a good way to close it.

While I would be comfortable with the show ending this season, I don't think two hours is enough to conclude the current (and surprisingly decent, I might add) plotline without feeling horribly forced and rushed. I think at least five more hours would be needed to conclude the show satisfactorily, and ideally they'de be given the rest of a standard TV season to finish it.

prison break has been a good show so ending it will be a shame, maybe adding new faces will be good and the plot can be revisited because its called prison break it doesnt mean the whole series has to revolve around breaking out of prison. I think the show should get at least one more season to conclude!!!

I agree, there are different kinds of prisons, but I guess I'm not sure where else the show can go at this point--this season has been a lot better then last season, hated that nasty old prison but this season has been a lot better, but a lot of the magic of season one has been missing because of all the cool stuff that Michael had planned and we watched unfold!!!

I hope this is the last season as it has been stretching out to much. If they're gonna make season 5 and they are going to prison and had to break out again, this will be my last season of prison break. I don't want this show to be stretch so long it become boring and unwatchable anymore. I hope it start great and end great so we will always remember prison break. Not start great and end poorly because it stretch out so much nobody can stand watching it.

I'd like to say that PB deserves a longer build-up to the climax...but frankly, it doesn't.
Season 1 Was incredible. But since then, every season has been worse then the last (except, arguably, the current season). Right now, I just want some closure with a show that I have to force myself to sit through.

I wasn't going to bother commenting because what I think has already pretty much been said but proofray's comment made me laugh. Now I know Prison Break isn't what it used to be in the first and second season (whereas the ratings may have dropped from season 1 to 2, I for one, do not think the quality of the show decreased at all, I was very impressed with season 2) but Heroes? Really? I don't know even know how the pilot got the show a green light for a full season, if you want hokey acting and forced dialogue, I guess Heroes is the show for you.
As for how I think it should end, I don't really care. As long as it done in a tactful manner that makes sense, if it ends at season 4 so be it, if it gets renewed for 5, then they better have some good material. I think the more recent episodes of season 4 have been really good, I am genuinely impressed when comparing them to season 3 and early season 4, if they keep it up in this fashion, season 4 might end up being not so far off par with seasons 1 and 2.

i remember reading somewhere on this site that micheal was gonna lose his memory and start working for the company to find the fox river crew. if this is the running theme for season 5 i think there will be a good chance of the show getting back some ratings. just imagine link tryna figure out his bro's moves? it would be gr8 guys, have the guts to admit it.

i still feel like they haven't revealed enough about the company. They've kept it a mystery for a very long time and unless i missed something we're still not quite sure what she meant when she said "scylla isn't just the company's black box." i'll only be satisfied with the series concluding once they reveal exactly how and why they got into this whole mess. we have that flashback about linc performing a hit that's still kind of a mystery. what was he doing back then? there are plenty more questions i have too. but maybe i just cant remember some of the things that would answer my questions.

New Plot: probably kinda cliche. Give Michael a job along with the team working for the government solving some terrorist plots or something after they bring the company down.

well i think it'll just end with season 4, hopefully. Maybe a few more hours. Even if it doesn't end, then i think the season 5 should be worthwhile to watch. However, i think if they add season 5, it'd b too long. Because it seems like there's not much story left behind. Bringing the company down, then michael got cured or mayb die. hope he doesnt. so ..... if they do season 5, it'd pretty much b boring so a few more episodes mayb up to episode 22 or sth..then the END! hope the ending would last on our mind cauz if the endding's bad, then it doesnt stay in our mind. :D like lost,,,, bad ending.

Hmm its going down quite a bit the whole breaking out all the time is a bit much, and the person who said watch heroes instead is right, it won't be long before they heroes have more then 100 charaters and then nobody will know what the eff is going on lol, And im suprised LOST still has a spark of all the shows i wanna see again its LOST can't wait its been so long without it !

first off prison break has always been good, it's addictive, and easily to get obssessed over. the plotlines are interesting, and shockingly very educational. their different aspects to the show like humor, action definitely, romance of course, also hot cast lol. anyway prison break isn't like the other shows it follows up to a higher expectation. but, i'm not criticing you guy's opinion but your judegment is a bit off. but, yea season 1 was the number one season.season 2 introduced the characters deeply. season 3 revolved around michael's growth of feelings torward sara like wise to her. it also showed that criminals also have hearts. season 4 i would have to say is my second fave. it showed love, action, and humor. which i have to say that not a lot of shows can pull that off. so hope you guys are true fans that will support the show. even on it's downfalls. every show has a downfall season theres 100's. my all time fave shows would have to be prison break (of course) and supernatural (duh).watch supernatural the best most viewed show and season 4. also the title priosn break isnt just escaping prison, its more dept. life with no freedom is a prison the people (micheal and the rest) are trying to breakout. but nowhere and nothing is safe.
