After five seasons, Wentworth Miller says goodbye to Prison Break. The actor, who plays the lead role of Michael Scofield, no longer wants to play heterosexual roles.
“ I don‘t want to play heterosexual characters anymore,” he says on Instagram. Stories of heterosexual characters have been told often enough, says Wentworth. “So. No more Michael. If you’re a fan of the show and hope for extra seasons then I understand it‘s disappointing. I’m sorry.”
Dominic Purcell, who plays his brother Lincoln, is also leaving the series. “The sixth season is not going to come”, confirms the actor. “I talked about it for a long time with Wentworth. His reasons for stopping are legitimate. I‘m not gonna try to persuade him and abandon his truth. So we leave it there and there won’t be a sixth season either. If he does get there, then without us.”
