[via press release from FOX]

"PRISON BREAK" CONTINUES ITS RUN BREAK-OUT HIT PICKED UP FOR SECOND SEASON ON FOX

FOX has picked up a second season of the hit drama series PRISON BREAK starring Dominic Purcell as a wrongly convicted death row inmate and Wentworth Miller as his brother, who, armed with the prison's blueprints tattooed over his body, devises an elaborate plan to break him out, prove his innocence and uncover the conspiracy that landed both of them in maximum security. After their initial escape attempt proves unsuccessful and Lincoln is granted a brief stay of execution, the brothers are forced to rely on their dangerous contingency plan, as well as a growing number of fellow inmates now involved, in order to escape before Lincoln is put to death.

After its "fall finale" in November, PRISON BREAK returned to the FOX schedule the week of March 20, winning its Monday 8-9 PM time period among Adults 18-34, Men 18-34 and Teens. PRISON BREAK has gained +7% in Total Viewers (10.2 vs. 9.5 Mil) over its fall episodes.

So far on Mondays, PRISON BREAK shows impressive gains compared to FOX's prior 05/06 season average in the time period, including +57% among Adults 18-49 (4.4/12 vs. 2.8/7), +81% among Adults 18-34 (4.9/14 vs. 2.7/8) and +42% in Total Viewers (10.2 vs. 7.2 Mil).

PRISON BREAK is from Original Films and Adelstein/Parouse Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Paul Scheuring, and Scheuring, Marty Adelstein, Dawn Parouse, Neal H. Moritz, Matt Olmstead and Brett Ratner are executive producers.
