Amaury Nolasco is going back to prison to plan another break out! The actor had signed up to reprise his role as felon Fernando Sucre in Fox's revival of Prison Break.

Nolasco shared the news with fans on 15 March and posted a photograph from an old episode on Instagram with the caption: "#Sucre is back with the gang! Buckle up! Looking forward to seeing my brothers again."

Nolasco played Wentworth Miller's character, Michael Scofield's cellmate in the original series. He works on the escape plan in the hopes of reuniting with his fiancé.

Along with the 45-year-old Puerto Rican actor, his co-stars Dominic Purcell, Mark Feuerstein, Sarah Wayne Callies and Wentworth Miller – who was killed off in the original series – will also return to the reboot.

Fox TV co-chair and CEO Dana Walden had announced in January that the new Prison Break "unravels on an international landscape, it's not a domestic show". She hinted at various role reprisals saying, "I'm hoping we'll see many of the great characters ... return throughout the season. It has all the twists and turns you've come to expect from that show."

Production of the revival show, which will consist of nine episode, will begin in April in Vancouver and will debut during the 2016-17 television season.
