Sarah Wayne Callies is officially set to return for the “Prison Break” revival on FOX.
Callies will reprise her role as Dr. Sara Tancredi, the love interest of Wentworth Miller’s lead character Michael Scofield. Miller and his “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” co-star Dominic Purcell, who plays Michael’s brother Lincoln Burrows, are also returning.
Set years after Michael’s apparent death at the end of the previous season, Sara has moved on with her life and is raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (Mark Feuerstein). When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, she teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.
Much of the original cast is expected to return for the series. Callies currently stars on USA Network’s “Colony” and says producers on both shows are working hard with scheduling so she could return to the iconic series.
Augustus Prew, Rick Yune and Steve Mouzakis are also joining the action with original showrunner Paul T. Scheuring set to pen the script.
