Just when everyone thought that Prison Break ended back in 2009, Fox comes up with season 5. The new season picks up right after Michael’s assumed death. There are signs that Michael is alive and rotting in a middle eastern prison. So naturally Sara teams up with Lincoln to instigate what will be the biggest ever escape from a third world maximum security and zero human rights prison. We see C-Note, Sucre, and T-Bag brought back into action, bigger and more furious than ever. The fifth season will consist of ten episodes with the prospect of maybe a sixth season though as far as we know the fifth is the last one.

If you love watching scruffy looking guys get hammered, tossed around and stabbed then here is how you can watch Prison Break online.
