Filming Locations: Where was Prison Break filmed?

Posted by

The original Prison Break series ran from 2004 to 2009 on FOX, so it's been a while since last time we watched the brothers making their way out to freedom. This new bunch of episodes is considered to be the fifth season of the show, although it has also been called Prison Break: Sequel, Resurrection, or even Revival.

So pick up your favourite name and let's follow Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller reprising their roles as Lincoln and Michael. This time it's not just about breaking out of prison, the goal is to break out of the country itself.

Prison Break was filmed around Vancouver (Canada) and in Morocco. Here is a selection of some of the most relevant locations for this new season. As always, we will be updating this report as we get more info and more episodes are aired:
