Prison Break” is back and busting loose again.

In the revival series, Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) have found out that somehow Michael (Wentworth Miller) is alive. But of course he’s in prison. Time to do what they do best: Break out of prison. Meanwhile, Michael has a plan, and it involves something very innocuous. Check out this never-before-seen clip: 

Along with the clip, Callies, Purcell, Miller and Robert Knepper, aka T-Bag, and execute producers Vaun Wilmott and Michael Horowitz appeared on the Comic-Con panel today in San Diego. Although we didn’t find out just exactly how Michael is alive (since he had apparently died in the series finale) we do learn that his tattoos are different this time around.

Miller said, “Michael has a fresh set of tattoos and they’re central to the plot. But they don’t work quite as they did the first time around.” 

T-Bag has also changed, but not physically. “You’ll see the guy struggling to not be that guy that he was before,” Knepper said. “This thing I did before, you’ll see him resisting that a lot.”

The “Prison Break” revival will air in Spring 2017.
