Prison Break will return for a 10-episode run on FOX.

Fans probably screamed in excitement last night (6 August), as following months of speculation, the news we all wanted to hear was finally confirmed.

FOX chairman Gary Newman announced at the TCAs in Pasadena that original creator Paul Scheuring, and stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will be returning for the reboot.

Did you hear that? Brothers Michael Scofield (Miller) AND Lincoln Burrows (Purcell) will be back in action!

FOX's Dana Walden said: "I would describe it as a bit of a sequel. It picks up with the characters several years after we left them in the show. The brothers will be back.

"Some of the iconic characters from that show will be back. it will address some of the questions from the original show but also appeal to new audiences."

The sequel, which will air in 2016, will take place after season four but before the DVD movie where Michael died, so technically Michael will still be alive!

We hope the sequel involves T-Bag, Sucre and Mahone too!
