BAD NEWS!! PB might be cancelled??

Prison Break’s executive producer Matt Olmstead has admitted that the show may be axed in the near future.

In the wake of poor ratings for recent episodes, Olmstead told Entertainment Weekly: “There’s a shelf life to serialized drama. If this is the last season, we’re not mourning that because it’s been a great ride and we have a great season [ahead].”

In the event of the series being cancelled midway through the current run, Olmstead stated that the writers will “definitely have enough time to prepare for an appropriate ending. The season finale we have in mind could play as a season or series finale.”

However, he admitted that Prison Break’s producers have “absolutely been encouraged by the response” to the fourth season. “It took a while to get the right idea… and to have the audience supporting it is very gratifying.”

Come on guys seriously we can stop this from happening! We just have to tune in even if you are not watching it just turn on your TV!

  5. bad news, but every show ends sometime
    but im not surprise with the response
    this show was not abt saving the world or going after the bad guys it was abt love n relationship n how far a man can go to save the love ones
    also some people r saying that cast is totally disconnect n acting level is average { not my opinion}
    still im not giving up this show i believe they will pull together n come up with excellent work as usual

  6. I agree with Rabya. I don’t see any chemistry between the characters, epecially MiSa. I used to love Sarah’s character, and now she just kinda gets on my nerves. Michael is still great, but not great enough to keep the show moving. In the first couple of seasons, the characters were intense, driven, and relatable. This season, it seems like they’re just going through the motions waiting for the other shoe to drop.
    I will still continue to watch it faithfully, as I love Wentworth Miller, but I won’t be surpised if it’s cancelled midway. If that’s the case, I hope the writers will give us one hell of a farewell (closure).

  7. Hey, people, watch the Prison Break, because I can’t live without Michael and Sarah…
    I’m desperate…
    So turn on your TV…PLEASE!!!
    :-( (((((((((((((((((((

  8. the ending of prison break? i think that day will be the last day of my life!
    Prison break is fantastic… everyone in portugal (where i live) loves it!
    we can’t let them do this to prison break… prison break isn’t just a tv show, for me, it’s a religion!
    don’t you agree?

    Comment by Patricia — September 24, 2008 @ 4:36 pm

  9. oh no…please dont do that! I love prison break…well, if it’s the end, I hope they’ll end it in a good way, like happilly ever after for MiSa.
    I have to agree with the post above me! Glad I’m not the only one who’s in portugal that loves prison break too. =D
    I’m supporting prison break all the way, even if it gets to an end (of course that Went helps too! =P)
    But I hope that’s not true…=(

  10. the charakters changed,but i think prison break is still as good as it allways was.
    i come from kosovo,so i cant watch fox.but i watch prison break on the internet.and im sure thats what many people do too.
    it would be so bad for all the prison break fans,who watched the show for years,to canlsel the show.
    it would be realy unfair,if not even this season countinous.cause i was sad to hear that this could be the last one…

    Comment by Tea — September 24, 2008 @ 5:57 pm

  11. no i don’t want prison break to end.plz guys do something.they can’t just cancel it without even thinking abt us.they have to give us a full season 4 with 22 episodes.plz guys watch it.plz.

    i love wentworth ,i love michael scofield n i love misa.i can’t let go of PB tht easy.plz guys do something.

  12. I will die if they don’t finish this show. And what pissed me off if that most of the fan are not from U.S.A. They don’t seem to realize that the show is a huge success because the rating are just from united state. Please let this season having all the 22 episodesé

    Comment by Steph — September 24, 2008 @ 7:02 pm

  13. I’m not going to be at home next week to watch it, but it will turn on my TV and press to mute button… AND I will d/l the episode after to watch it since I do not have a video recorder!!

    I hope they are not going to cancel this season half way through!! I love prison break even if this season have less intensity than the other ones…. Still love Michael personality. I do agree that I do not really believe in MiSa anymore… the chemistry between them is not like it was in season 1!!

    Please do not cancel this amazing show!!

    Comment by Cynthia — September 24, 2008 @ 7:11 pm

  14. That surely don’t help that the show is airing at 9 PM. Because now all the show air monday evening at 9 or so. One Tree hill was used to air wednesday, now it air monday at 9 and there’s also Gossip Girl i think. And i agree for MiSa too, i missed them the way they used to be. Michael was claiming out & lound that she was everything for him and now that she’s back we don’t see them together in intimacity. They don’t have one minute to breathe. Hope they will change that and give more explanations about Sara beeing hostage.

    Comment by Steph — September 24, 2008 @ 7:35 pm

  15. i guess 4 seasons are good already, but it’ll be nice if they don’t cancel season 4 midway. i have to agree with those who said that there weren’t that much chemistry b/w Misa, i think i saw that too, sara seem to be so distance from michael, it’s like people keep saying that they’re such a perfect couple and now she’s like afraid of her husband misunderstanding or something. in case this is the last season, i hope that the writer will make Misa more intimate.

  16. I hope this show doesnt get cancelled. I am from the Philippines and I only get to watch it by downloading from the net. I pester my IT manager to do it for me everyweek. The people in the US should be able to do something to up the ratings. From the comments I read, there are a lot of us outside of the US who can make a difference, given the chance.
    It’s a weekly therapy for me to watch MISA and PB. Please dont get the show cancelled,you guys!!!

    Comment by abi — September 24, 2008 @ 11:38 pm

  17. I love this show but i agreed with Paulina. And I also can’t watch it on Fox. I don’t want them to cancel this show but they need to put more exciting and pull out how smart from Micheal.
    I hope they will raise up their rating :)

  18. neither bad news or good news bad news ’cause ı am going to miss went good news ’cause ı going to see sw callies

    Comment by lisa — September 25, 2008 @ 3:25 am

  19. hi, I’m from the Netherlands and we love prison break. Season 4 is a bit different ofcourse than the other seasons but nevertheless really interresting! It is a different kind of excitement with all the guys out of prison and you have to keep in mind the longterm outcome of this season i think. Then you must watch the show, there have been so many shows cancelled in the US which were so popular abroad i think FOX should keep this in mind. Come on everyone watch watch and watch again till you can watch no more!!! Special thanks to mr. T-Bag you are a real bad-ass love it.

  20. Those are terrible news ,but maybe the best for Went because he is this fixed on this MS character.
    I love PB for sure , but seeing Went´maybe on the big screen ,showing much more of his acting skills like at ( ” The human stain” )should be fine to.
    It’s up to you Americans to safe the show .
    As far as I know the international downloads are amazing.Millions of people do this week after week ,me to no matters thats illegal.
    Otherwise this comment from Matt Olmstead can be the wake up call to all fans out there to safe PB.
    We will see.

  23. OMG you have got to be kidding me . this show is the best ever and canceling it midway would be a STUPID mistake.
    what about the dedicated fans of the show, dont we have a saying in all this. i swear to god if they cancel the show i will die out of anger and disappointment.

    Comment by samar — September 25, 2008 @ 9:49 am

  24. If I don’t get my weekly fix of Wentworth Miller I think I might go to LA, or wherever, to find him. He is the sexiest man alive and the things I would do to him should be illegal ;)

    Comment by rabya — September 26, 2008 @ 9:02 am

  33. Come on guys !!!!!! Please …..keep watching Prison Break!! This show can’t be cancelled.
    I’m from Brazil and here in my country all Prison Break’s brazilian fans are desperate ( including me ) with this news.
    I can’t believe that after all the success, great comments and audience, the show will have an ending like this! It can’ t happen.
    In my point view, it’s really unfair for all the team (cast, writers, producers, …..) that have been working hard, with effort and dedication, during all these years to giving us one of the best series ever.
    And we ( PB fans ) need to do something. A petition or anything necessary to save the show. We need to let people know how much we like PB, because otherwise, even if the cancellation don’t happen, the show will be reminded for its disagreeable moment and not for all the success and applause it’ve already conquered.
    What surprises me the most is that how a show of this level, with plot and script incredibly surprising and
    intriguing, can be in a position like that!!!????
    SO PLEASE …..beyond turn on the TV’s every Monday night on FOX, let’s do something (eg: petition or any action like this ) to prove that it is our favourite (or one of our favourite ) TV program and that Prison Break, definitely, is not a poor or common program, so it deserves a little bit more of our attention.

  34. We have loved Wentworth as Michael, and I can’t help but admit that it is the best role for him. But we could see him in another project too. Maybe in a movie?

    Comment by rabya — September 27, 2008 @ 6:55 am

  37. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo please tell me is not true! nooooo noooo noooo!!!!!!

    Comment by gogoulini — September 27, 2008 @ 7:36 am

  38. This season really isn’t as good as the others but I think that if they decided to make season 4 they must do it till the end inspite of the ratings. Otherwise it’ll be very unfair towars all fans that support them all the time. They just have to prove that they really care, not just in words. Beseides this rating thing sucks. As their counting is onl for USA not including downloads all over the world. But it’s clear that if they don’t have any profit in USA it’s useless. Anyway I hope that we’ll see full season.

    Comment by Mery — September 27, 2008 @ 8:02 am

  39. Please don’t let this happens.
    This season is great. I know that season one was the most intense one, but I think that this season 4 is great also.
    I’m an student and I don’t watch TV shows, but for this one is great to “lose” one hour in my life to delete with the best TV serie I have ever watched.
    Please do something!
    If this happens, It will be a great lose.
