Prison Break fans, rejoice - a sixth season is definitely on the way, it's been confirmed.

The series, reportedly a favourite of National Party leader Bill English, follows two brothers who frequently get imprisoned before breaking out.

It made a comeback in 2017 after originally finishing with its fourth season in 2009. Now, yet another season is in early development.

"We are developing a new iteration of Prison Break," Fox network president Michael Thorn confirmed to media.

"It's in very early stages of development, but we're really excited about it."

Another Fox executive said that the sixth season will feature an entirely new cast, which may disappoint fans of beloved stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.
