“So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I’m sorry.”

Dominic Purcell, who portrays Lincoln Burrows extended his support for Miller’s decision writing; “It was fun mate. What a ride it was. Fully support and understand your reasoning. Glad you have made this decision for your health and your truth. Keep the posts coming. …. love ya brother. ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
