The premiere episode will open up by revealing Michael Scofield?s (Wentworth Miller) fate. Although he was thought to be dead in the direct to DVD Final Break, Scofield is apparently alive after faking his death. The news of Michael?s survival reach the ears of his brother Lincoln through their nemesis T-Bag.
The teaser trailer shows T-Bag reporting the news to Lincoln who then informs Michael?s wife Dr. Sara Tancredi. It is revealed Michael is alive and well in a prison in Yemen. He is, once again, in the cross hairs of a shady organization that is tied to ISIS. The authorities have branded him as an infamous terrorist known as ?Kaniel Outis.?
Speculations have suggested Michael?s death was covered by government agencies. He may have started working as part of the US government?s anti terrorist operations in the region. It is not known how Michael got ultimately entangled with likes of ISIS. But, it is the question that is yet to have answers and should be given once the season will air.
