Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar join the returnees
Fox’s Prison Break revival has picked up another two former cast members, with Robert Knepper and Rockmond Dunbar set to reprise their roles as jailbirds T-Bag and C-Note.
They join previously announced cast, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies and Amaury Nolasco
In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after “escape artist” Michael Scofield’s (Miller) apparent death, Sara Tancredi (Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (Mark Feuerstein). But when clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with his brother Lincoln (Purcell) to engineer the series’ “biggest escape ever,” as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag (Knepper), C-Note (Dunbar) and Sucre (Nolasco), are pulled back into the action.
Fox co-chariman/CEO Dana Walden said: “The story unravels on an international landscape — it’s not a domestic [plot]. We open on a very international contemporary-feeling story.”
Series creator Paul T. Scheuring will return as showrunner on the nine-episode Prison Break revival. Filming begins in Vancouver in April.
