Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

An engineer gets himself incarcerated so he can spring his death-row brother (framed for a crime he didn't commit) in this taut drama. Michael's success is followed by he and his fellow escapees on the lam in Season 2---and back in prison, this time in Panama, in Season 3. In Season 4, the crew, back in the U.S., chase the nefarious Company. And a Season 5 revival picks up after Michael's apparent death, with Sara and Lincoln teaming up to investigate clues that point to his still being alive.
Creator: Paul Scheuring

Critics Consensus: Prison Break recaptures some of its old urgency in its return, but familiar faces and frenetic action aren't enough to make up for a plot that manages to bore while beggaring belief.

2017, FOX, 9 episodes

Critics Consensus: Prison Break's (first) series finale will bring closure to the diehard fans, but the season's ludicrous, plot-breaking twists betray the feeling that this saga should have ended a jailbreak or two before.

2008, FOX, 24 episodes

Critics Consensus: Prison Break's third season relocates the drama back behind bars, but the series feels like it's just retreading old ground with a series of new contrivances in tow.

2007, FOX, 13 episodes

Critics Consensus: Prison Break's second phase branches its inaugural season's focused narrative into a series of tangents on the lam, which may lose the interest of some viewers but does maintain the series' propulsive momentum.

2006, FOX, 22 episodes

Critics Consensus: Prison Break is confident pulp with a crackerjack premise that spreads thinly enough to smooth over the show's more lunkheaded flourishes.

2005, FOX, 22 episodes
