There is still no confirmed release date for the much-awaited return of "Prison Break." Even before the upcoming fifth season is released, Wentworth Miller is already hinting that a sixth season might be possible.

In an interview with Digital Spy, the "Prison Break" actor revealed that the upcoming revival is scheduled to be released in 2017, and that future episodes would greatly depend on how fans react to the new episodes.

The actor then discussed what could be expected in the upcoming new episodes. Miller claimed that much like the nine years which has passed since the last episode of the series aired, the fifth season of "Prison Break" will also have a huge time jump. Seven years has passed since the events in the last episode, and unsurprisingly, a lot has changed in both the environment and the characters themselves.

Fans of the series know that Miller's character, Michael Scofield, died before the fourth season of "Prison Break" ended. In the upcoming revival, however, his brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) and wife Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) team up to get him out of prison after learning that he is indeed alive. 

Aside from series regular Miller, Purcell, and Callies, it has been confirmed that Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, and Rockmond Dunbar will be reprising their roles as Fernando Sucre, T-Bag Bagwell, and C-Note Franklin, respectively.

There will also be more than a few newcomers to the series. Mark Feuerstein will play Sara's current husband, Jacob Ness. Augustus Prew, Rick Yune, and Steve Mouzakis will be playing Whip, Ja, and van Gogh, respectively.

The best part in the "Prison Break" revival is that series creator Paul Scheuring is also part of the team. He's also the one who wrote the nine episodes that will be released in January 2017.
