‘Prison Break’ Revival Bringing Back More Original Stars

The gang’s all here.

Fox’s “Prison Break” revival is bringing back original stars Robert Knepper, Amaury Nolasco and Rockmond Dunbar, who are reprising their respective roles as T-Bag, Sucre and C-Note, respectively, Variety has learned.

The trio joins previously announced returning cast members Sarah Wayne Callies and, of course, stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, who will be back for the event series that will debut during the 2016-17 season on Fox.

In the new “Prison Break,” when clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael (Miller) may be alive, Lincoln (Purcell) and Sara (Callies) reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag (Knepper), C-Note (Dunbar) and Sucre (Nolasco), are pulled back into the action.

This week, Nolasco posted about returning to “Prison Break” on his Instagram, writing, “It’s Official!!! Sucre is back with the gang! Buckle up! Looking forward to seeing my brothers again.”

Aside from reuniting the original cast, the “Prison Break” event series is also bringing back the original producing team, including creator Paul T. Scheuring, who will serve as showrunner and writer, plus Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead all of whom will serve as exec producers. Vaun Wilmott, Michael Horowitz and Nelson McCormick are also EPs with McCormick on board to direct; 20th Century Fox is the studio.

“Prison Break” debuted in 2005 on Fox and ran for four seasons. The original show centered around Miller’s character, who was determined to prove the innocence  of his convicted brother (Purcell) and save him from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison.

Knepper is repped by Innovative Artists and Link Entertainment; Dunbar is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Levity Entertainment Group; Nolasco is repped by Innovative Artists and Untitled Entertainment.
