Why Prison Break was Banned In 13 U.S Prisons -Fox drops fifth season

Almost eight years after Prison Break ended it’s Season 4, believed to be the Series finale, Fox is dropping the fifth season.

Fifth season is eight years overdue

The fifth edition of the widely successful TV series led by Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell and Sarah Wayne Callies ended its fourth season in 2009, with many believing Season 4 is the series finale.

 Apparently, we were wrong as Fox has revived the Paul Scheuring-created action drama as an event series debuting April 4 almost eight years after Prison Break ended its fourth and what was considered final season

why Prison Break was banned in 13 prisons in U.S

Rattled by calculations and manipulations that went into Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) prison breakout, 13 prisons across the United States banned the show from being aired to inmates. Reason? The wardens were worried it might inspire a wave of attempted “Prison Breaks” in their institutions.

The prison inmates actors were named after former US presidents and politicians

Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell is named after Theodore Roosevelt (14 September 1901 – 4 March 1909), and Lincoln Burrows is named after Abraham Lincoln ( March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865). The show’s protagonist, Michael Scofield, is named after Edward Scofield (an American politician who served as the 19th Governor of Wisconsin), whilst Benjamin Miles “C-Note” Franklin is named after, of course, Benjamin Franklin (renowned polymath and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States).
