Prison Break fans are eager to see Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows pulling great escapes in a 2017 context, the recent revival trailer emerging as one of FOX’s most popular, but production seemingly got a little too rough with star Dominic Purcell. The actor suffered a major facial injury on-set, necessitating some time off, but will it delay the premiere?

Via TVLine, Purcell himself posted the gruesome photos to Instagram, having suffered a broken nose and head injury requiring 100 stitches, obtained when a heavy piece of the Morocco set fell on him. The also-Legends of Tomorrow star was flown to a nearby medical facility, but is expected to make a full recovery.

Fortunately for fans, only Purcell will sit things out for the time being, leaving the rest of production to resume filming toward a 2017 premiere. Purcell will catch up on his missed Prison Break scenes upon a full recovery.

In addition to Robert Knepper, Rockmund Dunbar, Amaury Nolasco and Sarah Wayne Callies joining Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, says the full synopsis:

In the drama’s new chapter, when clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive, Lincoln and Sara reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag, C-Note and Sucre, are pulled back into the action.

Set partially in Yemen, the new series will include among its prison-breaking cast Mark Feurestein, Augustus Prew, Rick Yune and Steve Mouzakis. On the creative side, the revival will return original Prison Break creator and producing team Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, Scheuring serving as showrunner and writer.

Stay tuned for the latest, particularly as Fox sets a firmer 2017 airdate, and watch the trailer below.
