Prison Break May Bring Back Another Classic Character

You just can’t keep a good TV show down. Between the recent reboot of The X-Files, and the upcoming revival of 24, FOX has seen fit to dust off many of the network's cancelled series. One such beloved series that will soon return to the small screen is the hit program Prison Break, which was announced by FOX to be returning some time back. We already know that Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will return to the drama about busting out of jail, and now it seems that the series is looking to bring back actress Sarah Wayne Callies as Sara Tancredi.

Former The Walking Dead actress Sarah Wayne Callies has been starring in USA's Colony as of late. However, she recently sat down with THR to explain that there’s currently quite a bit of work being done in order to allow her to reprise her role as Sara Tancredi on the Prison Break revival. Here's what she had to say:

I know the Colony people and Prison Break people are trying to work out the scheduling so we can make it happen. There's a lot of good will and a lot of hard work on both sides.

So while nothing is confirmed, the door remains wide open for Sarah Wayne Callies to rejoin Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell on the upcoming reboot of Prison Break. It goes without saying that many fans would absolutely love to see her return for the impending revival. As prison physician Sara Tancredi, Callies played an integral role in the series from the first season all the way to the last; the show even went so far as to retcon her supposed death during Season 3 in order to keep her around.

Sarah Wayne Callies has kept herself busy since audiences last saw her in the role of Sara Tancredi. She most notably appeared for three seasons on the hit AMC series The Walking Dead as Lori Grimes, the (sometimes insufferable) better half of series lead Rick Grimes. More recently she has taken on a starring role in the new USA series Colony opposite Lost alum Josh Holloway. As Callies explains, there’s a great deal of enthusiasm surrounding her potential return to Prison Break, and the folks at Colony seem to be working in order to accommodate FOX.

We will keep you up to date regarding all of the latest and greatest information concerning the upcoming Prison Break revival as it becomes available to us. For now you can catch Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell on Thursday nights on Legends of Tomorrow at 8 p.m. EST on The CW, and Sarah Wayne Callies on Colony Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on USA.
