Prison Break season 6 renewal odds: Will Wentworth Miller, cast return?

Prison Break season 6Following tonight’s finale on Fox, what are the Prison Break season 6 renewal odds? The franchise is not necessarily dead just yet.

Going into the revival, the one thing that can be said is that it wasn’t necessarily made in order to continue the franchise forever. It was meant more as a one-time thing, and a happy reunion featuring many of the different cast members getting a chance to play around together once more. If it turned into something beyond that, then that’s all gravy. It’s just not something that was explicitly planned in any way to happen.

For the time being, consider the franchise on hold. It hasn’t been renewed for more episodes, but it also has not been canceled. Fox doesn’t seem to be all that interested in making more of it at the moment, but that could change in a year or so when the ratings for some of their other shows start to come in. This wasn’t an enormous success story, but it did also perform better, at least near the end of its season, than 24: Legacy did. It also fared better than many of their freshman series, and there is an eager audience all over the world who have an interest in seeing more of where Michael Scofield’s journey could go.

The schedules of Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell could also be a factor, with the latter serving as a regular on Legends of Tomorrow and with the former still likely a part of the DC Universe on The CW, depending on what the shows all want to do with the Captain Cold character. Then, you also have Sarah Wayne Callies serving as a part of Colony over on USA. Everyone is busy, but there are always opportunities for more stories down the line if the stars align and the actors have the time in their schedule.

Ultimately, the right philosophy here is probably the same philosophy that came following The Final Break — expect nothing else. If the show does come back, maybe it will be a pleasant surprise a little bit more down the line.
