Robert Knepper and Amaury Nolasco are also confirmed to return.

Here’s the scoop via Deadline:

Production is set to begin next month in Vancouver on the nine-episode follow-up to the cult 2005 Fox action series.

They join previously announced cast Amaury Nolascomembers Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell and Sarah Wayne Callies who will reprise their original roles as brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows and Dr. Sara Tancredi, respectively. A deal is still pending for original cast member Paul Adelstein.

The original Prison Break, which ran for four seasons, centered on Michael (Miller), who went to prison to try and save his convicted brother Lincoln (Purcell) by hatching an elaborate escape plan. In the drama’s new chapter, when clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive, Lincoln and Sara reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag, C-Note and Sucre, are pulled back into the action.

I will definitely be tuned in to check this out.
