Prison Break has returned!

It’s been close to a decade since Prison Break supposedly concluded, with Michael sacrificing his own life to free Sara from prison.

However, season 5 has now aired, and Michael is alive!

For those who have never seen the show, it is indeed exactly as it sounds…

Michael Scofield is a structural engineer who gets himself sent to Fox River penitentiary; so he can break out his brother Lincoln, who was going to be executed for a crime he didn’t commit.

The plot thickens, and the four seasons were one hell of a ride.

Since Prison Break has returned for a 5th season, we’ve put together this collection of the best Prison Break quotes:
