Prison Break: Season 4 (2008 - 2009)


Season 4
Prison Break

Critics Consensus

Prison Break's (first) series finale will bring closure to the diehard fans, but the season's ludicrous, plot-breaking twists betray the feeling that this saga should have ended a jailbreak or two before.

Critic Reviews for Prison Break Season 4

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

It bears no resemblance to the show I started watching four years ago. But it was amusing (if not always intentionally), and the fans who stuck it out all the way through will get plenty of closure.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Fans who preferred the show's more subtle nuances may find events folding together a little too neatly, but on the whole the finale serves the characters well.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The closing story became too convoluted with twists, turns and the reappearance of old characters.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It's all so much treading water, solely to get to some sort of grand finale that makes sense, as if anything could.

Sep 25, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

It's another rollercoaster ride for these memorable characters, and season four gives you the chance to say goodbye to some very compelling personalities.

Sep 25, 2018 | Rating: 8.1/10 | Full Review…

Somewhat staggeringly, this horse had one last race left in its creaking legs and saved it for the feature length-finale. Prison Break bowed out in fine style, wrapping up the tale of two brothers and leaving a lump in the throat.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Basically, the series -- which could have stayed cute, quirky and loveable -- slowly sinks and drowns under the weight of its own shoddy and convoluted plotting.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

There is an intensity behind the series that makes it difficult to stop watching. And, with this being the final season, the story is wrapped up somewhat nicely in the end.

Sep 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A tech with attitude -- always good to have one. It's especially good when the mission is as preposterous as this one.

Mar 23, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Sadly the rest of the show just went off the rails in a variety of ways.

Audience Reviews for Prison Break: Season 4

  • May 17, 2018
    This season became progressively worse especially when they decided to bring the brothers’ long deceased mother back to life which I believe was a last ditch effort to drag the story.

    WHA???? Very shocking ending to the series. So anyways, the two best seasons of Prison Break are when they’re not in prison at all. Season four was very good (not as good as two though), with more twists than you can count on all fingers of the Fox River escapees, even if you include T Bag’s missing five. It was definitely an action packed season, as the episode count doubled that of previous seasons. That being said, that was also its biggest flaw. It was TOO much, TOO long, TOO repetitive. I mean, honestly, who remembers the black assassin Terminator-like dude from the early part of the season? He made for a great villain, but is taken out of the picture with like a dozen episodes left, maybe more. The back-and-forth between the Company and the “Others” (so as not to spoil it) wasn’t done well either. But the action made up for it all, as season four sees a hell of a lot of it. A good conclusion to a rather good series. That ending, WHOA…

    Messy and illogical in many cases but there is still fun to be had.
