‘Prison Break’ enjoyed a lot of popularity in its original five-season run. It brought a new kind of drama to the table. Michael Scofield’s quest to help his brother, Lincoln Burrows, escape from a prison was an instant hit among the audience. The show was intelligently written and the actors played their parts well. There was creativity in its approach and every plan of action seemed well thought-out. The characters were very different from each other; and while we loved the ones like Michael, Lincoln, and Sucre, the show also gave us ‘love to hate characters’ like T-Bag.
The immense popularity of the show resulted in its revival, and the latest season aired last year. Now, it is renewed for another season that is well underway. If you are looking for something that’ll help you through the break before the next season comes, here are your options. Following is the list of TV shows similar to ‘Prison Break’ that are our recommendations. You can watch some of these shows like Prison Break on Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime.
15. Breakout Kings (2011-2012)
Though not a direct spin-off of ‘Prison Break’, this show shares some continuity with it. A task force is assembled to catch the criminals who have escaped from prison. In addition to the U.S Marshals, a few current prisoners are offered to provide help. For every fugitive they catch, their sentence will be reduced by a year. But if they try to run away, their sentence will be doubled. There is a lot of ‘trying to escape from prison’ acts in this show. But, it failed to maintain a good image and was canceled after two seasons. So, it’ll be a short binge for you.
