Will "Prison Break" End After Season 4?
Wentworth Miller once said he thought FOX's "Prison Break" could run for many years, just like hit procedurals such as "C.S.I.". After Monday's dismal numbers for season 4 premiere, the writers might want to think how to bring the over-the-top drama to a satisfying conclusion this year.
The 2-hour episode reunited Miller's character Michael Scofield with the love of his life, Dr. Sara Tancredi, whom the writers brutally killed off last year, after contract renegotiations with actress Sarah Wayne Callies failed. Dismayed by Sara's decapitation and "Prison Break's" increasingly contrived storylines some fans abandoned the series.
The audience erosion appears to have continued this year. After averaging 9.5 million viewers in season 1 in 2005, the drama has been losing about a million viewers each season. For the time being, it seems this year will be no exception, as "Prison Break" is now down to about 6.5 million viewers.
For this reason, the time may have come to finally bring down "The Company" and let brothers Scofield/Burrows catch their breath and put their battle against the invisible and lethal syndicate to rest. Providing there is another regular high-profile job waiting for the hunky Miller, of course.
