Prison Break Is Getting A Manga Adaptation (Yes, Really)

The popular Fox crime/action drama Prison Break, starring Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, has been revived once more as its very own manga adaptation.

Piccoma has teamed up with 20th Century Fox for the Japanese remake, which is drawn by artist Hikosuke Soyama. Though the subscription streaming service has already released the first chapter online, there's no word yet on when the manga will arrive in the U.S.

Soyama's serialized adaptation is expected to follow the events of Season 1, with the characters and location intact. In the pilot, Michael Scofield (Miller) is determined to rescue his older brother, Lincoln Burrows (Purcell), who has been framed for murder. With his full-body tattoo serving as a map, Michael has an elaborate plan that will help them both escape from Fox River State Penitentiary.

The last time audiences saw Miller and Purcell together as their respective characters was in 2017's Prison Break: Resurrection, the show's fifth season, which ran for nine episodes and followed Lincoln's search for his missing brother after discovering Michael faked his own death.
