Prison Break breaks from Chicago
The first season of Prison Break was filmed in Chicago at the Joliet Correctional Center, as well as various locations around the city. However, come next season, the show will no longer be taped in Chicago. The producers state that it has nothing to do with the city itself, but that the story calls for the move. I suppose, given the name of the series, that they would have to move to locations beyond the prison at some point. Officials in Chicago were aware of this, but there was hope that at least part of the second season would still be done in the Windy City. As it turns out, Chicago won't be part of the second season at all.
The season finale of Prison Break airs tonight at 8 p.m.
