at .  Updated at . Comments

Fox has finally unveiled its Spring premiere dates, and we finally have the news we've all been waiting for: Prison Break will officially return Tuesday, April 4. 

Prison Break 5x02

Considering how long the series has been off the air, that's not much longer for fans of the series.

The new iteration will span nine episodes and will put the characters together once more as they get word that Michael Scofield could actually be alive. 

As you probably know if you're a fan of the series, Michael apparently died in the series finale after breaking Sarah Tancredi out of a women's prison, with Alexander Mahone revealing that Michael was dying of health issues. 

Making History will premiere out of The Simpsons on Sunday, March 5. The comedy series stars Adam Pally and Leighton Meester.
