Prison Break Star: Next Season Is TBD The first season of Prison Break, which returns from hiatus on Monday, detailed the breakout, while the current season concerns our fugitives' race for freedom. What, then, would Season 3 be about? To hear series star Dominic Purcell tell it... well, no one knows. "Prison Break originally was a concept for two seasons," he says in the New York Post. "Now, because of its success and economics, the writers have to get really creative to justify a Season 3."

Phil: "Hi Neil! Do you have any news on when the new seasons of CSI (Vegas) and Prison Break will be returning to five?"
