TV Tonight: Prison Break Returns For One Last Run

Prison Break is a series that — to its credit — has probably managed to hang on far longer than its premise suggested it could. It seemed like a one season kind of show, two at best. Somehow, Prison Break has kept adding stories and twists, creating four seasons full of drama. But starting tonight, it really is approaching the end.

And everyone, from Fox executives to the series' creator, seems to think that's for the best: "The ideas that were tossed around in terms of what could be season five were pretty thin," executive producer Matt Olmstead said recently. There's a feeling among the cast and crew that the whole story was told — or at least will be by the time this final run is over.

Tonight starts with a repeat of Prison Break's most recent episode. Then a new one airs, the first of six total new hours (the series finale, scheduled for May 15, is two hours long). Two additional hours of Prison Break exist — they're actually a stand-alone movie, which may or may not ever air on Fox but will be released on DVD — but fans shouldn't worry: Olmstead said "everything gets wrapped up" in the May 15 episode, so the other two hours are more of a bonus than a necessity.

I stopped watching a while ago, but I'll watch the final, just because it's the final. I didn't really think it could go on any longer. They were in jail, then out of jail, then in jail then out again! Sheesh! :D It was awesome in the beginning though.

Heck yes, I'll be watching! I love Prison Break. I don't care how ridiculous or unbelievable the plot lines are - the cast is phenomenal. Dominic Purcell, Robert Knepper, and the always amazing William Fitchner!
