In season 1, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is sentenced to death by an American court for allegedly murdering the brother of the American vice president. Until the execution he sits in the Fox River State Penitentiary prison. His desperate brother Michael (Wentworth Miller), however, believes in Lincoln’s innocence, although the images from a surveillance camera actually speak against it.

And so it is a good thing that the latter was involved in the reconstruction of the prison as a structural engineer. Michael makes an audacious plan: he robs a bank and lands himself in Fox River State in order to free his brother in a risky escape. In doing so, he relies on help from the inside. The brothers have no choice but to let prison inmates “T-Bag” (Robert Knepper) and Sucre (Amaury Nolasco) in on the risky plan, among others. But everyday prison life proves to be a tough test. At the same time, Lincoln’s ex-girlfriend Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney), who is also a lawyer, investigates the case and stumbles upon a conspiracy.

In season 2, eight inmates manage to break out of Fox River, including the brothers. But the police are hot on the heels of the escapees. In addition, the men are pursued by former guards Bellick and Geary and an obscure FBI agent. It begins a breathless chase across the U.S., in which even the fronts between the escapees are not entirely clear.

Season 3 tells how Michael ends up in Panama in a special prison called Sona, where the inmates are left to their own devices. In the process, he clashes with the ruthless leader Luchero. Outside the walls, Lincoln does everything he can to at least have Michael transferred to a better prison.

The 4th and for the first time last season tells how Michael, after breaking out of Sona, lives only for revenge after Whistler has murdered Sara. In the process, Michael comes across new information regarding the conspiracies surrounding “The Company”.

The 4th season was the provisional conclusion in 2009. Now in 2017, with the new 5th season of “Prison Break”, a revival as a completed mini-series is coming out. For this, a large part of the old cast could be won. All further information on the plot and the start can be found in the linked article.
