Wentworth Miller To Star In 'Prison Break' Revival

Wentworth Miller as Michael J. Scofield in ‘Prison Break’

According to reports, FOX is reviving 2000’s prison drama ‘Prison Break’ for a limited run – and Wentworth Miller will be returning.


The series, which originally ran for four season in the late 2000s, looks let to return to our smalls screens. The revival will see the return of Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell once again, although a plot line has yet to be announced.

Since the original run of Prison Break ended, 43 year-old Wentworth Miller came out as gay in an open letter declining an invitation to St Petersburg International Film Festival due to Russia’s “gay propaganda” law.

“As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline,” Miller wrote.

“I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government,” he writes. “The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.”

While the FOX Network has not confirmed reports, with the reboot of The X Files and Full House announced, it seems plausible.
