Prison Break‘s Michael Scofield is back behind bars – and not actually 6 ft. under.

In a new preview from the upcoming Fox revival of the series, Michael (Wentworth Miller) is alive, well and once again imprisoned – all of which is news to Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), who seemingly buried her ill husband in the series’s 2009 finale.

“Michael was sick, and he died,” Sara tells Michael’s brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) in the clip, which was first premiered by TVLine.

Revealing an image of Michel in a Yemeni prison, Lincoln charges, “Then how do you explain that?”

Many of the original characters are back, including T-Bag (Robert Knepper), Fernando (Amaury Nolasco) and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar), who reveals that Michael is imprisoned for alleged dealings with ISIL.

Of the new adventures for Lincoln and Michael, Miller teases, “You can’t imagine a more dangerous situation to be in. But all is not as it seems.”

“Breaking out of prison is just the beginning,” he adds. “They have to break out of the country itself.”

And Purcell promises, “Prison Break is back, and we’re planning our biggest escape yet.”

Season 5 of Prison Break will premiere on Fox in 2017.
