FOX Orders Third Season of "Prison Break," Promises Actual Prison This Time

Michael and Lincoln might still be on the run, but FOX has opted to keep the escaped prisoners around for a while longer, ordering a third season of drama Prison Break.

While the network is being coy with potential storylines for Season Three, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that it's likely that Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) would return to life behind bars (i.e. prison) next season, along with several of their fellow fugitives.

The series will feature the return of several familiar faces from the first two seasons, along with a bunch of new characters, many of whom will not be American. Those comments lead many to indicate that the brothers will be imprisoned in Panama.

Prison Break's creator/executive producer Paul Scheuring said that Season Three "essentially will be a new chapter. It's going to return to the fundamental conceit, to the roots of what the show was about."

He also hinted that, while both Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are set to return next season, neither one of them is 100% safe, implying that one of their characters might not stick around (in this mortal coil, I assume) after the first few episodes.

Wasn't it both the Creator AND the star Miller who said this was really a one of two season show. The longer this stays on the air, the less I care.

I would really like to offer the characters some Tunafish Sandwiches. They are yummy and would make them not run anymore. With or without mayonaise, their choice. I don't want to push the mayonaise on anyone. Some like it, some don't. But no lettuce. I think that lettuce detracts from the tunafishiness of the tunafish sandwich.

Also, they should really have a new character, such as oscar the grouch come on. I know it seems like a stretch, but can you imagine if Oscar the Grouch was there and broke them out. If not Oscar, why not "the great gazoo" from the Flintstones. An alien could add a lot.

Anyway, to summerize, tunafish and a new character. That's it. I look forward to season 3!!!

Well, the last comment was about Tunafish for goodness sake. We are talking about PRISON BREAK HERE!!! Common. Seriously, if there's anything the characters need, it's some Deviled Eggs. Man, they are good in my hood.

I think that if they had them with extra Paprika it would give them the edge so badly needed.

As for another character, THAT I AGREE WITH! But Mr. Snuffalufagus or Tea Bag having a three-way with Bert and Ernie would be better. Nothing like some good man-on-muppet gay sex to make a prison thriller better.

What a GREAT SHOW!!!!!!!

Prison Break has captured everyones attention... Breaking a prison seems to be a very boring idea because lots of movies and tv shows have used it. However Prison Break from FOX has changed everything, the story, the characters, I can believe how good this show is... I have downloaded the two seasons and I can not wait ´till august for third season.. come on!!!! Prison Break fans can not wait that long!!! Hurry Up with that season...!!!

Prison break should have been a 1 or 2 season show. The more it drags on the worse the ending will be. I love the show however I fear it will end up like 'Lost' (The show that never ends) or the 'OC' (the show that had a sudden ending). I don't know why they try and squeeze every penny out of every show... instead of making it something to remember they make it something that doesn't eventually rate..... How many shows can people watch that don't have endings.

Please finish the show this season. It should have finished when the president stepped down. Don't ruin a good thing!

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas
