'Prison Break' Season Six Is Happening, Star Confirms
Oh boy oh boy, Prison Break fans do we have an exciting development for you.
Addressing some 'rumours' on his Instagram account, the actor, 50, touched on the all-important question of a sixth instalment.
"Rumor number 1. I'm old. Yes. I'm 50....." wrote Purcell.
"Rumor number 2. I'm bald. No I have a full head of hair; the people demand I shave it.
"Rumor number 3, Will season pb 6 happen. Yes.....
"Rumor number 4. Do I like humans? No. Not on mass. Definitely not."
That seems like a pretty certain 'yes' to us.
The smash hit series centred on two brothers Lincoln Burrows (Purcell), who has been sentenced to death for a crime he didn't commit, and Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), his brother who devises a plan to help is brother escape.
Four seasons of Prison Break ran from 2005 to 2009 and a fifth revival series aired in 2017.

It's been confusing for fans up until now, as in early 2018, Fox confirmed that season 6 was in early development, but the network seemed to change its mind when it announced there was no plans to revive the series in August 2019.
Fox Entertainment's CEO Charlie Collier said at the time: "There's no plan right now to revive Prison Break or any of the other franchises, but when the creators come with a story that they think is the right time to tell, we are so ready to listen because those are some franchises of which I'm so proud and feel so fortunate that they're in our stable."
Who to believe?!
To confuse matters more, Purcell seemingly confirmed the news again in another Instagram post from earlier in the year.
"I get smashed with 'when is #prisonbreak 6 happening'," he wrote.
"What I can promise is this. We are all in agreement that if the story is worthy it will get made.
"Now with the horror of this #virus the calamity of it all drills inside me a new focus a steely resolve with PRISON BREAK 6 -
"I'm very optimistic with #socialdistancing and a fierce adherence to expert opinion on how to beat this catastrophic unprecedented event, we all as one will be victorious over #coronavirus - corporations such as #netflix are desperate for content."
"The biggest gift all #artists #atheletes etc can give to you the people is entertainment so let's get our f***in lives back listen to the experts!
"I won't comment on pb 6 until it is time. Be safe. Be smart. Be vigilant. Yours truly Dom."
We don't know who is the most reliable source here, but Dominic has certainly stoked the coals of hope within us.
