Now, as anyone who follows Dominic Purcell knows, the actor is always teasing fans with the possibility of Prison Break Season 6. So, why is the topic trending now? Well, unsurprisingly, it is because of something Dominic Purcell posted on Instagram. So, has Prison Break Season 6 been confirmed? Well, People Magazine reports that to be the case. And, so does The Daily Mail. So, we decided to do a little digging. And, here’s what we’ve found.

Prison Break Season 6 confirmed? Dominic Purcell teases fans once more

Dominic Purcell took to Instagram to respond to several rumors. One of which being whether Prison Break Season 6 was confirmed by FOX. Would fans be getting another season of their favorite brothers? Purcell seemingly affirmed that was the case.

“Rumor number 3, Will season pb 6 happen. Yes…..” He penned in the caption of his post. Now, as those who follow the actor know PB is short for Prison Break. So, does that mean he just confirmed a Prison Break Season 6 is going to happen? Well, it certainly seems that way. But, it is important to keep in mind he is ALONE in this confirmation.

Neither FOX nor anyone else on the cast has confirmed anything about Prison Break Season 6.

Would Wentworth Miller be open to doing another season of the series?

Back in January of this year Dominic Purcell dropped a bombshell on fans of the FOX series. Again, the actor suggested another season of our favorite series was coming. And, fans couldn’t help but wondering what Wentworth Miller thought about the possibility of Prison Break Season 6. After all, FOX really couldn’t do another season of the series without Wentworth. The only way fans would want more of the show is if both Michael and Linc returned.

Interestingly enough, Wentworth is open to another season of the series. He, however, doesn’t believe it is something that will happen in the near future. Namely, because there are no production plans in place.

But, as we previously reported, there are higher-ups that have also confirmed Prison Break Season 6 was something “in the works.” Wentworth even proposed a possibility on what the next season of the series could be about.

He’s reunited with his loved ones, but I think he would be haunted for a long time. I think there’d be paranoia, insomnia, anxiety … maybe a lingering taste for darker things, illegal things. If there are new stories to tell, we could probably start there: with Michael’s not-so-smooth re-entry into civilian life.”

When did Prison Break Season 5 come out?

Season 5 of Prison Break was a pretty big deal for fans. It premiered on April 4, 2017. And, it concluded a little over a month later with just nine episodes on May 30, 2017.


Now, if you haven’t seen Prison Break you might wonder what is so special about Season 5. Well, for starters there is the fact that we assumed Wentworth’s character Michael was dead. That is what fans were left to believe at the end of Season 4. But, when they revived the series, they found a way to explain how he didn’t actually die. And, it was believable.

What else is interesting about Season 5 is the first season of Prison Break premiered on August 29, 2005. And, Season 4 concluded in December of 2008. So, there was nearly a ten year gap between Season 4 and Season 5. But, that didn’t stop the revival from being a HUGE hit. Fans were here for it. And, they are DESPERATE for more. They constantly take to the comments of Dominic Purcell’s Instagram asking for updates on a new season. And, that could be why he always teases them with the possibility.

Dominic Purcell’s followers react to the possibility of a revival.

It’s been a few years since Season 5 aired on television. So, one could argue that Season 6 would be yet another revival of the FOX series. Dominic Purcell’s Instagram post has accumulated almost 200,000 likes and nearly 5,000 comments. Considering how many outlets have picked up the story, that isn’t too surprising. But, what did his followers have to say?


“Now pleasr stop flooding the comments for season 6 😂he said yes already,” one follower jested in a comment liked almost 200 times. Unfortunately, people were not listening. They flooded with excitement.

  • “SEASON 6!!! I’M SO HAPPY!!!”
  • “This dude just casually said prison break is happening.”
  • “I can’t tell if he’s joking about season 6.”

Some individuals were quick to point out that Dominic Purcell has been teasing Season 6 since shortly after Season 5 was released. So, for now, we’ll have to wait and see!
