‘Prison Break’ Season 5 Spoilers

Prison Break had ended with the death of Michael Scofield, and fans are curious to know how he will be brought back into the scheme of things. If we go back to 2009, technically fans did not see Michael die as his final moments were left to the imagination of the audience.

The new season will be set in present time, so the show would definitely delve into the incidents that might have occurred during the past eight years. Latest Prison Break Season 5 spoilers suggest that Scofield would be shown working for an ISIS style terror organization. Scofield would not be the same guy he was before, not afraid to do wrong things or killing someone. Wentworth Miller said the following during an interview.

“He’s been up to some not-so-nice things and there’s a question as to whether or not he’s even qualified to be considered a good man.”

As seen in the Prison Break Season 5 trailer, Scofield is in a Yemeni Prison which is considered to be one of the toughest to breakout. Of all people, T-bag will learn of his existence and bring that news to Lincoln, who then decides to help Michael orchestrate the biggest Prison Break in the show.

Prison Break Season 5 spoilers suggest that in the entire process of breaking Scofield out, Lincoln will have to die. He would be hit badly by a truck and may end up losing his life. The news first surfaced on a Storyboard for Season 5 released by Entertainment Weekly. Lincoln’s knowledge about Michael’s imprisonment may put a greater agenda at risk and people behind it would go to great lengths to protect the secret. Executive producer Paul Scheuring said the following.

“If people start finding out that Michael is still alive, then it puts their larger secret agenda at risk.”
