The critically acclaimed prison drama 'Prison Break', which captivated audiences with five seasons and a movie, is poised for a thrilling comeback as a reboot on the American streaming service Hulu, as reported by Deadline.

Originally, 'Prison Break' centered around the story of Lincoln, an innocently condemned death row inmate, and his brother Michael's intricate plan to rescue him.

This plan famously included Michael tattooing the prison blueprint on his body.

This reboot is being hailed as "a new chapter" in the 'Prison Break' saga. The creative force behind this resurgence is director and screenwriter Elgin James, known for his work on the 'Sons of Anarchy' spinoff, 'Mayans MC'.

Joining him is Paul Scheuring, co-creator and producer of the original 'Prison Break' series, along with several producers from the original team.

In an intriguing twist, the reboot is set within the 'Prison Break' universe but reportedly will not involve the original characters. This decision opens up numerous possibilities for fresh narratives and new characters, building upon the rich foundation laid by the original series.

Details regarding the plot and the cast remain under wraps, and there is no confirmation yet on when or where the series will be available for viewing.

This anticipated reboot marks a significant development for fans of the genre and the original series, promising to deliver new stories while honoring the legacy of 'Prison Break'. Stay tuned for more updates as this exciting project unfolds.
