Wentworth Miller, who played the lead character as Michael Scofield in Prison Break has revealed that he won’t return in the next season of the show.
Miller made this known in an Instagram post, stating that his decision to leave the show was because he was denied the freedom to play gay characters.
In the trending post, Miller identified with the LGBTQIA+ community while apologising to fans and critics who “fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one”.
“On a related note… I’m out. Of PB. Officially”, Miller wrote.
“Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don’t want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told).
“So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I’m sorry”
