Prison Break’s Dominic Purcell has sparked speculation that season six could be on the way with a recent post in his social media profiles.

The does-what-it-says-on-the-tin show’s last aired in 2017 with its fifth season, but season 6 still hasn’t an official greenlight no matter of the previous interest from its network Fox.

Posting close-up shot earlier this month, the Lincoln Burrows actor teased in the caption: “Hearing #october,” next to clapperboard and camera emojis.

As you’d think, Purcell’s fans were fast to react in the comments section over what his cryptic post might mean, with one particular user writing: “Please tell me is PB6.”

“If it’s Prison Break, hurry up already! Withdrawal!” added another, while a third replied: “wait what i feel like this is about prison break….”

With less than two months to go until October and an appetite from followers for more prison drama, let’s hope the rumours are right.
