"It's going to bring back both brothers, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, and Paul is busy writing the first episode. And once we have those written materials, I feel confident we're going to be going straight to series on that one.”

As for where exactly the series will fit into the 'Prison Break' timeline, Fox boss Dana Walden said. "Paul's in the middle of writing it right now, I would describe it as a bit of a sequel. It picks up the characters several years after we left them in the last season of the show. The brothers will be back.”

“Some of the iconic characters from that show will be back,” Walden added. “Not sure Paul knows exactly where he's going over the 10 episode arc, but will definitely address some questions that were set up at the end of the series.” There’s no word yet on when we can expect the special series to hit our screens, but it's safe to say now's a good time to start getting excited 'Prison Break' fans.
