LOS ANGELES — TV’s most handsome convicts will get another term on Fox’s “Prison Break.”
Production is set to start mid-June on the show’s second season, to begin in the fall, a network spokesman said Wednesday.
The hour-long drama follows a group of inmates, led by two brothers, as they plan their escape from Illinois State Prison. They will break free by the time the season wraps on May 15.
The show’s sophomore season will track the men as they attempt to elude capture.
“Season 2 will be the manhunt,” series creator and executive producer Paul Scheuring told the trade paper The Hollywood Reporter. “It will be ‘The Fugitive’ times eight.”
Producers have not yet decided whether the show’s title will be modified or changed to reflect the convicts’ on-the-lam status.

“Prison Break” stars Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller, who was nominated for a Golden Globe this year for his work on the show.
Producers have announced that they’re scouting locations in New Mexico, as part of the new story line will be set in the Southwest. They’ve also said that three characters will be killed off in the last two episodes of the second season.
