Breaking: Fox cancels 'Prison Break'

Stevenkingprisonbreak_lBig news from Fox’s portion of winter press tour! The net just announced that Prison Break would be coming to an end this season. Oh, did I say big news? I meant news we all saw coming a mile away.

The final string of episodes will kick off April 17, but exactly how many episodes there will be is an open question. "We’ve got our remaining batch of four episodes and then there are a couple more we’re contemplating," says network prez Kevin Reilly, adding that the four-year old Prison has simply run its course. "The show is played out."

Do you agree? Will you miss it? Looking for more scoop? Check out what Prison Break‘s exec producer told Lynette Rice exclusively about the series finale (for starters, "There will be deaths”) at EW’s Hollywood Insider.

    This is good – this show has sooo run it’s course. I hope they have some good story resolution though.

    i’m shocked it took them this long to cancel it

    Holy Sheet!!!!…….Yea Right.
    I’m not surprised gave up on that show after the second season.

    I mean they broke out of prison what, three years ago? Time to put a bullet in the show.

    I thought it was over after Sarah got beheaded and T-Bag became a neurosurgeon– on himself! And all the prisoners get stuck at the same prison? The only thing that didn’t happen was Lincoln become Michael’s baby-daddy in a way to cover some stolen loot.
    Good riddance to a show that was once good.

    I really liked Prison Break and thought this past season was doing Well. Another Great show goes down, while other crap remains on the Boob Tube. Sad…

    I’ve watched it since day 1. It’s run it’s course, but I have enjoyed this season more than any previous season (seasons 1 & 2 were pretty darn good, though). I’ll miss it, but I think it would be a mistake to give it another season. I just hope it all gets wrapped up properly, since they just introduced Michael and Linc’s mom.
    Maybe they’ll explain in the final episode why Michael and Linc have different last names – lol.

    I enjoyed Prison Break this season and was kind of curious about The Company after a couple of the twists that were thrown at us… but, I do have to agree that the show had run its course. Good times for awhile!

    I love Prison Break! I am really sad its ending. I think they should have named it something else, because everyone expects them to be breaking out of prison every episode. I like the direction they have gone with the Company. I think it all makes sense now.

    I have watched Prison Break since day 1, but I’m very very glad it’s ending. This is a show that needs an ending date. It can’t go on forever. The show is getting more and more ridiculous with each season. Just because you like a show doesn’t mean it should go on endlessly. I just hope FOX lets them resolve everything with a proper finale. I want to see Linc and Michael finally live happily ever after, after all the hell they have been through. Ending this show was a good decision.

    I think it is time to end the show, but I do want to say that season 4 has been the best post-prison season. I was not a huge fan of season 3 (the “SONA” season) and I think they developed a good sotryline for this season to let the show come to a decent conclusion.

  • MM

    Hmm..well, they are filming an episode RIGHT NOW over by the Long Beach Arena so they’ll have some episodes for sure.

  • barrymary

    No way…can not live without my Prison Break…totally love it and will totally hate FOX if will not continue it.

  • Jae

    I’ve been watching Prison Break since day 1, and as sad as I am to see it end, I know it definitely needed. I hope the finale is as good as the passed 4 seasons have been. Give the show an awesome goodbye.
