Fox has confirmed that a third season of Prison Break is in the works.

"It essentially will be a new chapter," explained creator and executive producer Paul Scheuring. "It's going to return to the fundamental conceit, to the roots of what the show was about."

Precise details about what season three will entail are being kept under wraps but Scheuring has indicated that both Wentworth Miller (Michael) and Dominic Purcell (Lincoln) will return for at least the initial episodes of the new run. Options on the actors involved come up for renewal in May and more details are expected then.

Production on season three will be based in Dallas, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with auxiliary locations in Florida and Louisiana.

Prison Break, which wins its timeslot in the adults 18-49 demographic, joins Bones and House among Fox shows receiving relatively early renewals. The show airs on Mondays at 10pm on Five in the UK.
