Fox has ordered Prison Break to serve another season.
According to Variety, Prison Break, which had its third season cut short by the writers strike, is confirmed for a fourth go-round. Fox has ordered 22 episodes from 20th Century Fox TV.
The third season of Prison Break revolved around the show's main characters breaking out of a Panama prison. The show's exec producers had crafted a midyear cliffhanger at the end of the show's 13th episode; that ended up serving as a de facto season finale.
Now, season four will pick up with the characters having escaped prison, and Michael (Wentworth Miller) seeking revenge against the people who killed his love interest. Dominic Purcell stars as Miller's brother, Lincoln Burrows.
Prison Break will also relocate to Los Angeles; production had previously been located in Dallas (seasons two and three) and outside of Chicago (season one).
