Prison Break has gone back to its original recipe, by reuniting the Burrows brothers and sticking them back behind bars.
That means - spoiler alert - Michael played by Wentworth Miller, is alive and has been since the last season ended despite what fans were shown.
The tattooed brooding hunk has been resurrected for the return of the FOX series, which is set to make a massive return in April.
"I died seven years ago, left behind a wife, a son and a brother. But the dead talk, if you listen," says Michael in the exciting new trailer.
The characters are set to go on a journey around the world in the new series, which will also see them return to where they started - prison.
Executive producer Dawn Olmstead said of the rebooted series: "All the people you loved from the original Prison Break play a significant role in helping Michael" escape, and Dominic Purcell adds that the revival "is going to better than the original".
Fans had questioned in the past whether the show would pull a Dallas and pretend Michael's death was fake but, Fox TV boss Dana Walden dismissed the rumours at the time.
He said: "I would describe it as a bit of a sequel. It picks up with the characters several years after we left them in the show. There will be a logical and believable explanation to why the characters are alive and still moving around the world."
It's still not yet known when UK viewers will get a slice of the prison-based show, but a UK broadcaster is sure to pick up the series soon.
Prison Break will debut on US screens on Tuesday April 4 at 9pm ET on FOX.
