The fan-favorite Prison Break is looking to make another jailbreak as Deadline reports Hulu is in early development on a new incarnation of the series, written and executive produced by Mayans M.C. co-creator & showrunner Elgin James.
The report says this new installment is set in the world of Prison Break but will not involve the characters at the center of the original series and its follow-ups on Fox. At the time of writing, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are not attached to the project.
As part of Elgin James’ new deal with 20th Century, James executive produces alongside Prison Break creator/executive producer Paul Scheuring and the original series’ executive producers Dawn Olmstead, Marty Adelstein, and Neal Moritz.
The original Prison Break aired on Fox for four seasons, followed by a made-for-TV film titled The Final Break. Then, in 2015, a Prison Break sequel limited series starring Miller and Purcell served as the fifth and final season. The original cast also included Amaury Nolasco, Sarah Wayne Callies, Paul Adelstein, Rockmond Dunbar, Inbar Lavi, Mark Feuerstein, Robert Knepper, and Augustus Prew.
James recently wrapped up Mayans M.C. and will look at this reboot as his new major project.
