Hulu is reportedly in early development on a new incarnation of the FOX drama “Prison Break”.
The original series debuted to much fanfare in 2005 and ran for four seasons and a direct-to-video movie. Later it was revived for a fifth season in 2017. Amaury Nolasco, Sarah Wayne Callies, Paul Adelstein, Rockmond Dunbar, and Robert Knepper also starred.
The Hulu project is dubbed a new installment set within the world of the old show, but not expected to involve the characters who were at its center – namely brothers Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell). Indeed, back in 2020 Miller announced he was done with the franchise.
“Mayans M.C.” co-creator, executive producer and showrunner Elgin James will write and executive produce the new series through his Sierra Drive production label.
Further details are being kept under wraps. 20th Television, which produced the original, serves as the studio on the new offshoot.
Original series creator Paul Scheuring and executive producers Dawn Olmstead, Marty Adelstein and Neal Moritz are also all returning. Hulu is the streaming home of the existing seasons of “Prison Break”.
