Filmed partially on location in Morocco, the fifth season of Prison Break will premiere in the UK at 9pm on Monday 10 April on FOX.

The official synopsis reads: “As clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive, Lincoln and Sara (Wayne Callies), Michael’s wife until he was presumed dead, reunite to engineer the biggest escape ever. Three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre (Nolasco), T-Bag (Knepper) and C-Note (Dunbar), are pulled back into the action. But with Michael behind bars in the infamous Ogygia Prison in Yemen, the danger is just as real outside the prison walls as it is inside.”

The terrific cast reprise their celebrated roles as they return for a daring escape that rivals any that came before. Prepare for a heart-pounding thrill ride with fierce loyalty, sacrifice and family at its core. It’s escapism at its best! Prison Break joins FOX’s April line-up hot on the heels of the recent reboot 24: Legacy and alongside Outcast and The Walking Dead.”
