‘REA ‘REAREALPRISONERSAL PRISONERS SEND SENDD USUS FANFAN MAIL!’MAIL!’
The show initially launched in 2005 to huge acclaim and ran for four successful seasons. But ironically, Sarah says it’s more popular now than before, thanks to Netflix!
“We have more fans now than we did when we were on air. Streaming services make it possible to go back and catch up on old series,” she says.
And while the cast are used to fan mail, she says many people would be surprised to learn much of it comes from people behind bars themselves.
“For some reason, prisoners were allowed to watch Prison Break whilst they were incarcerated.
“We often receive letters from real prisoners who collect celebrities’ autographs in order to pass the time,” explains Sarah.
