Sarah Wayne Callies and some other characters will return to the next installment of the series "Prison Break".

In January, Fox officially ordered the entire production for the next season of Prison Break instead of only the pilot episode. Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will also come back as two brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows. Recently, Deadline revealed that one of the main characters, doctor Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), signed the contract to return.

In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after Michael’s apparent death, Sara has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband. When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.

Besides, Deadline also hinted that Robert Knepper (T-Bag), Amaury Nolasco (Fernando) and Rockmond Dunbar (C-Note) are also in the process of negotiations to return, but nothing is official quite yet. Co-Chairman/CEO of Fox Television Group, Dana Walden, said that the new season is set a few years after the events of Season 4. However, the new series will offer a logical and believable explaination why Michael is still alive. Dana added: “The story unravels on an international landscape, it’s not a domestic. We open on a very international contemporary-feeling story.”

The original Prison Break centered on Michael (Miller) who went to prison to try and save his convicted brother Lincoln (Purcell) by hatching an elaborate escape plan. After four seasons, Prison Break still proves to be one of the most profitable of Fox. The Fox drama’s original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner.

Prison Break will start its production in Vancouver next month.
