You haven't forgotten about the "Prison Break" revival, right? Everyone was hyped on the news last summer, but what's the latest update on the 10-episode sequel? Stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell talked to TVLine about the difficulties in scheduling the new series around their work with "DC's Legends of Tomorrow." Both actors are committed to that show's 16-episode debut, so fitting in "Prison Break" is a challenge.

As Purcell put it, the studios involved are "negotiating the complexities" of a deal, but he said the project is "moving forward." Miller was a bit more hopeful in his comment, while acknowledging the scheduling issues. "There are a lot of moving parts to that conversation, but we are hopeful that we'll be able to shoot something this spring. 'Prison Break' is taking its cue from 'Legends,' which is the priority. So we're aiming for spring."

"Legends of Tomorrow" premieres January 21 on The CW, with Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave and Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold. We're all in favor of that "Arrow" and "The Flash" spinoff to succeed, but it worries us that they seem unsure about the "Prison Break" start date.

As we were all told last summer, the "Prison Break" event series, modeled after FOX's "24: Live Another Day," is a sequel, of sorts. As FOX co-chairman and CEO Dana Walden put it at the time, "It picks up the characters several years after we left them in the last season of the show. The brothers will be back. Some of the iconic characters from that show will be back. I don't think [executive producer producer] Paul [Scheuring] knows exactly where he's going over the 10-episode arc, but it definitely will address some questions that were set up at the end of the series for a new audience."

Cross your fingers that the answers come sooner rather than later.
