Two brothers at odds, and Mama makes three.
On Friday, April 17, Fox’s "Prison Break" returns for the first of its final run of episodes, having been warned early enough that its fourth season would be it to plan for a bang-up finale.
"We knew at the beginning of the season that it was most likely the last," executive producer Matt Olmstead says. "We had a real chance -which we took advantage of -in terms of properly wrapping up the show."
"The fact that it’s four seasons," says Robert Knepper, who plays the nefarious crook and con man Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell, "it’s a complete number, four.
"It just feels like there’s a closure to it, as opposed to a lot of shows; they leave you hanging because they didn’t know how to end it, or they got snagged off the air."
After three-plus seasons of half brothers Michael and Lincoln (Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell) breaking themselves and each other into and out of prisons from Illinois to Panama, Olmstead starts this run with a twist.
This season, the brothers and their motley crew of friends, cellmates and former enemies (like T-Bag) have been battling the enigmatic Company that has played puppeteer with their lives.
And, as it turns out, the mother (Kathleen Quinlan) they share is not only not dead but up to her neck in the conspiracy.
