With so many eyes on Michael Scofield, it's going to be tough for him to disappear again.
The "Prison Break" 2017 limited series revival -- aka "Prison Break" Season 5 -- premieres April 4 on Fox. A second extended trailer for the series was released January 11, teasing "This year breaking out is just the beginning." A lot of fans watched that beginning play out in the new trailer, which set a new 24-hour viewing record for the network. It became Fox's fastest-growing trailer by the afternoon of Jan. 11, earning 42 million organic views from Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. As of late Friday afternoon, Deadline reports, the trailer had crossed the milestone of 50 million views -- 49 million views just on Facebook, plus more than 705,000 on YouTube, with 50,000 retweets and likes on Twitter.
According to Deadline, "Prison Break" Season 5 -- starring OGs Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield) and Dominic Purcell (Lincoln Burrows) -- "is set in Yemen with ISIS and ISA in the mix. While Michael is presumably dead, he really isn't and he winds up working for an 'organization.' He's thrown in a Yemen jail, realizes he's been set-up and tries to stage a prison break."
"Prison Break" returns on Tuesday, April 4 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
