When will Prison Break Season 6 be released? Based on Dominic Purcell's previous multiple posts on Instagram, Season 6 of the popular American series was in the process of making.

The making of Prison Break Season 6 is already under production. Its official plot is totally kept under wrap to mainly avoid predictions and rumors. Dominic Purcell took to Instagram for multiple to assure that Prison Break Season 6 would surely take place.

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has announced over Instagram saying he won't return for Season 6. The 48-year old actor, who played the role of Michael Scofield, has revealed that he would not return to reprise his role even if Prison Break Season 6 comes back.

"On a related note... I'm out. Of PB. Officially…. So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons... I understand this is disappointing. I'm sorry. If you're hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one..." Wentworth Miller shared on Instagram.

"This is my favorite IG account," someone wrote in response to a recent post. Thank you. I want you to know I saw that. I see the positive comments and DMs (a lot of them anyway). Affectionate. Supportive. Appreciated (by me). Obviously there are comments and DMs I appreciate less. Who are these people? On my page? What backwards-ass, Stone Age values country did they crawl out of? The U.S.? I won't be disappearing (too many cool things to repost). The ability to comment likely will. I'm not concerned for myself. I can't be "bullied" in this space. I have too much power. "Delete. Block. Deactivate." Etc. But I take seriously the possibility of queer kids visiting here, recently out of the closet or exploring the idea... I don't want them exposed to bullshit. On a related note... I'm out. Of PB. Officially. Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don't want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told). So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons... I understand this is disappointing. I'm sorry. If you're hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one... That's your work. - W.M. 🏳️‍🌈

On the other hand, Dominic Purcell recently took to social media in support of Wentworth Miller regarding not desiring to return for Prison Break Season 6. "I cannot persuade, nor would I even attempt to persuade him to betray his truth. So, that's it, six isn't gonna happen, and if it does happen it's not gonna happen with myself or Wentworth because I'm loyal to Wentworth," Dominic Purcell said in his video.

The decision made by both actors to not reprise their roles in Prison Break Season 6 is shocking but deserves respect. However, we believe some positive things will surely happen in future as fans are highly disappointed with the latest announcements.
