Seasons

56%
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

50%
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

50%
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

71%
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

77%
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
