The story will pick up right after Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) passed away and got buried in Prison Break Season 4. However, for the upcoming season’s plot twist, Michael will come back still alive and well. According to Digital Spy his brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) came to his rescue. And in no time he will be soon seen working with the ISIS terrorist group. Several reports suggest that Lincoln might die in this season as he is going to try to protect his brother from ISIS group. Meanwhile, Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Callis), Michael’s beloved wife , discovered that Michael is still alive, stuck up in Yemen prison and will try to get him out. The plot, in general, is said to be based on Homer’s Odyssey, as Michael embarks a journey in going back home to his wife and his son he didn’t meet yet.
William Fichtner’s character Alexander Mahone, however, is not returning for the new episodes. Paul Scheuring admitted that he is not quite sure as for how to insert Fichtner’s character into the storyline, according to the reports of the International Business Times. However, Scheuring added that there is still a possibility in the revival of Alexander’s character as the storyline goes on later. As for the new cast, Scot Ness confirmed his role as Mark Feuerstein which will give a complication to Michael and Sarah’s love story.
