This will come as a huge disappointment to fans of the show, who recently were able to watch season 5 after a long wait. It seems FOX will not be in a rush to produce a new season.
The main reason for it not being granted a quick renewal by FOX, which we were half-expecting, is because the ratings for the newest season were too low for them to consider making a new one. Though this is not to say there won’t be a season 6, we can still hold hope, just that there is not going to be one anytime soon.
FOX Network Chief Dana Weldon explained how they would love to have more episodes, but not anytime soon, read what was said below:
“We would definitely consider doing more episodes of Prison Break. I know they’re thinking about it. It’s definitely not something we want to do every season, we want to make it special. We actually love this season.”
