Prison Break may not be dead yet. 

Dominic Purcell, who played Lincoln Burrows on the hit Fox drama through all five seasons, has addressed the possibility of another revival. 

The series originally aired from 2005-09 and was canceled after its fourth season.

However, Fox brought the series back as an event series in 2017 for an eight-part season, and there was talk of it coming back for more. 

Nothing materialized, and it sounds like the Disney-FOX merger scuppered any plan to bring the show back. 

Now, Purcell has taken to Instagram to reveal that he has a "steely resolve" in him to bring the sixth season to fans. 

"I get smashed with 'when is #prisonbreak 6 happening'. What I can promise is this. We are all in agreement that if the story is worthy it will get made," Purcell said on Instagram.

"Now with the horror of this #virus the calamity of it all drills inside me a new focus a steely resolve with PRISON BREAK 6– I'm very optimistic with #socialdistancing and a fierce adherence to expert opinion on how to beat this catastrophic unprecedented event, we all as one will be victorious over #coronavirus — corporations such as #netflix are desperate for content," he continued.

"The biggest gift all #artists #atheletes etc can give to you the people is entertainment so let's get our f**kin lives back listen to the experts! I won't comment on pb 6 until it is time. Be safe. Be smart. Be vigilant. Yours truly Dom."
