yeah, tv shows start and end here and there, but this really
- Prison Break ending series after season fourth
came to my attention. I really like the show. But i found out they were
ending it, i knew they were and also it did need to someday.
Prison Break fans, there’s really no easy way to say this so we’ll just
take a very direct approach: Prison Break is coming to an end…soon; Fox
today announced the series will be ending at the conclusion of this
The news probably isn’t a huge shock to anyone who has been
following the series recently. Late last year, speculators thought the
show would be coming to an end when Fox tacked on a few extra hours to
this year’s production schedule. And with heavy promotion for Fringe,
24, and Lie to Me in full swing, it isn’t hard to see who the odd man
Prison Break is currently on a little vacation, as Fox beefs up its
midseason schedule with the aforementioned trio and a little program
called American Idol. However, Fox did schedule a return for the final
episodes of Prison Break–they begin their run April 17.
According to TVGuide.com, Fox president Kevin Reilly explained,
“[Prison Break] got to a point where a lot of the stories had been
told,” which is a kind way to say the show was running on fumes
creatively. At least six hours of the drama are left to go, with the
possibility of a few more hours added as Reilly said he wants the
program to “finish strong.”
Before fans organize a save-the-show campaign complete with an
assault of freshly shaven hair and teabags, consider this: Prison Break
was originally conceived as a one-season show or mini-series, but
instead was stretched out to four full seasons. That’s some
glass-is-half-full thinking right there.
Well Prison Breakers, do you agree with Fox’s Reilly? Did the show run
out of gas? Who will you miss most when the screen goes dark?
