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!
