'Prison Break' Spoilers: Season 5 To Show How Michael Scofield Faked His Death

"Legends of Tomorrow" actor Dominic Purcell has a surprising explanation for the revival of "Prison Break" Season 5. Premiere dates for Fox's spring shows have been set, including an escape plan for the show.

Purcell was asked in an interview with TV Guide at the Television Critics Association winter previews how the "Prison Break" revival got approved. He said that he and "Underworld" actor Wentworth Miller were working on "The Flash" when they started to talk about revisiting the show at Fox, which paved the way to greenlit the show pretty fast. He also added that Netflix had something to do with the regenerated interest for the show.

According to Deadline, the conversation for the "Prison Break" revival carried over to creator Paul T Scheuring. Scheuring not only took inspiration from Homer's Odyssey but was also attracted to the idea of doing a limited series, given the current vogue in TV for tight, storytelling. He did not experience during the initial series runs of "Prison Break," which gives him a plus.

"Prison Break" Season 5 is set in Yemen with ISIS and ISA in the mix. While Michael Scofield (Miller) is presumably dead, he really is not and winds up working for an organization. He is thrown in a Yemen jail and realizes that he has been set-up and tries to stage a prison break.

Scheuring expounded on the serendipity that ensued in regards to bringing together the cast for a nine-episode "Prison Break" Season 5. The show was shot simultaneously in Morocco and Vancouver over 13 to 15 weeks. It is expected to reunite Scofield with the love of his life and his wife Dr. Sara Tancredi ("The Other Side of the Door" actress Sarah Wayne).

"Prison Break" series originally ran from 2005 to 2009. Season 5 all started when Heat Wave and Captain Cold met on the set of CW/DC's "Legends of Tomorrow." Among the stars returning to the series include Purcell (Lincoln Burrows), "Transformers" actor Amaury Nolasco (Fernando Sucre), "Hitman" actor Robert Knepper (Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell), "Soul Food" actor Rockmond Dunbar (Benjamin Miles 'C-Note' Franklin), and "Private Practice" actor Paul Adelstein (Paul Kellerman).

"Prison Break" returns to Fox on April 4 at 9/8c.
