A&E Network's original scripted drama series, BREAKOUT KINGS, returned for a highly anticipated second season with 10 all-new episodes on Sunday, March 4. From Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora, writers/producers of the hit series Prison Break, BREAKOUT KINGS follows an unconventional partnership between the U.S. Marshals' office and a group of convicts as they work to catch fugitives on the run.

In the episode titled "Freakshow", airing on Sunday, April 29 at 9 PM (ET/PT), Max Doyle is the latest felon to escape. The lack of belonging Max has felt all his life is only partially assuaged by the fact that he's turned himself in to a premier escape artist. Max's talent creates a challenging case for the team. Meanwhile, not all of the Kings are on this case... at least one stays back to follow a clue left by their nemesis, Damian (Jason Behr).

Immediately following, at 10 PM (ET/PT), in the episode entitled "Served Cold", the hunt for Damian continues. Still barred from working on the case, the Breakout Kings do what they need to do to bring their enemy down but they are soon faced with an impossible choice.


Veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie Duchamp (Laz Alonso, Avatar, Fast and the Furious 4: Fast & Furious) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi, The Wire, Entourage) decide to reject protocol and take an unorthodox approach to their work: using former fugitives to catch current ones. They form a special task force composed of the three most elusive convicts Ray ever captured: Lloyd Lowery (Jimmi Simpson, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,), a former child prodigy and behaviorist/psychiatric expert who excels in psychoanalysis; Shea Daniels (Malcolm Goodwin, American Gangster), an ex-gang banger who knows how to work the system, both in prison and on the street; and Erica Reed (Serinda Swan, Tron: Legacy, Smallville), a sexy expert tracker who learned her trade from her bounty hunter father. Charlie and Ray also employ the services of Julianne Simms (Brooke Nevin, Worst Week), a civilian who acts as the "funnel" for the group - all information, tips and data go through her.

    great show

  • The End

    I like this series too. I would love to see a Season 3. Perhaps them dealing with some company remnants that break out The General from Prison Break, that would make a cool story after the T-Bag stuff from Season 1.

  • TB

    I can’t tell if this is good news, or bad news… Still, I love the show. I can’t wait for the finale!

    Great show hope gets 3rd season and as @William saysi thought the order was 13 not 10 was it cut down to 10 or something

  • Stephanie

    Their ratings between season 1 and 2 haven’t changed much so I’m hoping for a season 3!! But just as William said, they cut down the episodes so Im hoping that’s not a bad sign. I am a die-hard prison break fan and I love breakout kings! I just hope it doesnt turn out like “Dark Blue” that was a good show and it got cut.. :(

  • Juanita

    One of the best shows on A&E this season. Well-crafted and fast-paced. Hope they get a third season.
