Not sure how they'd pull this one off, but hey -- that's always been the "Mission: Impossible" nature of "Prison Break." The Fox TV show ran for four seasons, from 2005 to 2009, and ended in a way that might suggest it would be hard to revive. But hide that shiv for now, 'cause TVLine says Fox is developing a limited-series revival of the series that would re-team stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell. They said if this actually happens, it would be something like "24: Live Another Day" in that it would include about a dozen episodes and featured a closed, standalone storyline.

Wentworth talked to E! News about the idea back in January, saying Fox "seemed to think there was something there." He continued on the idea of going back to tell unseen stories:

To go back and do something like we did at the end of season four, where there were those two standalone episodes were Sara was in trouble; it was like a hidden chapter, we didn't know this, but we're going to share this with you, wouldn't it be cool to go back and layer one of those things in. Like another standalone chapter, this is what you didn't see before. Or a where are they now, it's five years later, limited series kind of thing. I think that'd be really cool."

The five years later part may be tough for ... certain characters, but they could plot twist their way out of it or give an alternate ending or something better than those ideas. What do you think of this limited series idea -- good plan or better to let a good show rest in peace?
