Sarah Wayne Callies Nixed By Prison Break

Sarah Wayne Callies Nixed By Prison Break

Sarah Wayne Callies is not returning to Prison Break this season, reports TV Guide.

The 30-year-old actress, who plays Dr. Sara Tancredi, was reportedly on maternity leave but apparently that’s not the case!

This doesn’t make much sense creatively for the show as Prison Break spent two years building her relationship with Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), but we’ll see how the writers spin this one. Who’s going to be Michael’s new love interest this season???

Back in January, it was announced that Callies would be expecting her first child, with husband Josh Winterhalt, in late summer. No news about the birth has officially been announced yet but the baby is reportedly a girl.

UPDATE: A publicist for FOX just issued a statement exclusively to “Actually – the network and studio has not confirmed that Sarah Wayne Callies has departed the series this season. Dr. Sara Tancredi plays a significant part in the storyline this year.” So the question still remains — will Callies return as Dr. Tancredi?

    a recast would make this even wors …
    an actor IS the character … you don´t replace them …

    seriously, all that talk “Michael and sara will take care of each other”, “it is going to be a rollercoasterride” “i´ll be back, for sure” makes it so difficult and out of the blue …

    why not just say in the beginning “we´ll see how my pregnancie goes and all … i won´t say anything for sure now” … but no … SWC WAS GOING TO RETURN … so this is scandalizing …

    i´m deeply hurt and angry.

    they are stupid,no one else with Michael makes sense,they were building this relationship for 2 years…bye bye Prison Break!

    Of course it’s the decision of the actress. Why would the writers want her out if they don’t even have an exit storyline shot.

    No, if she is gone, she’s definitely the one who dumped THEM, not the other way around.

    please we need an update!! did she have a baby? when?

    Blythe Says:

    That update is ridiculous JustJared. The network is spinning, spinning, SPINNING because they don’t want to spend any real time premoting this show. What a nightmare! There is an easy answer to this question, she’s either in or out. Which one is it Fox!? She can’t possibly play an important role if she’s out. What idiots. They need to fire their publicist.

    ok so she is still on?

    Tommy Girl Says:

    I think SWC liked being the only female on the show and now that they hired a couple of new hot women she’s feeling intimidated!

    until sarah’s rep confirms, i dont believe it, i mean everyone knew she was taking time off at the beginning of season 3 for maternity leave, however if she does confirm it it would be best if they killed her character off i wouldnt like to see anyone else play the role but it would be a shame as the michael/sara relationship is one of the strongest in the show, perhaps now she’s had the baby maybe she feels differently about her career and has decided to becomea full time mum for now.

    I already think the Sona/Season3 plot looks like it sucks big time, but this decision will make *my* decision NOT to watch PB anymore very easy.

    bree Says:

    Probably they are both lying. She is probably trying to squeeze more money out of Fox and Fox is trying to not give her more money and now they are both lying about her not coming back.

    I bet my ass she’ll be back.

    shel Says:

    I remember watching an interview with SWC earlier this year and she mentioned something about PB only being TV and whatever happens happens. I think she’s more interested in making movies…Whatever happened I wish her the best, if she truly decided to not comeback b/c she’d like to be with her baby, I think even more of her!

    blue Says:

    she always said in interviews how much she likes working on the show and with Went,maybe she will be back in the second part of season,cause spoilers say that something about Sara causes a rift between the brothers

    Keys Says:

    She’s probably not coming back, but to save face before the start of Season 3 the publicist is being wishy washy so PB doesn’t lose any Season 3 viewers come Sept 17! Enough of the games FOX….Like #31 said she’s either in or she’s out, it’s that simple! Which one is it???

    She can’t be gone…how will we have MiLiSa?

    blabla Says:

    It will be weird if she won’t come back. But I guess they’ll found a way to make the show good

    I bet she’s a huge ***** underneath that smily face

    Harper Says:

    If I were SWC I’d just cut the bullshit and make my own announcement and end all this speculation.

    Pheebe Says:

    WTF???? O_O
    I don’t care if she’s pregnant… SHE HAD TO COME BACK!
    Sarah W.Callies IS Sara Tancredi, and after two seasons they can’t delete the character or change the actress! PB fans love her, and Callies can’t do this!!! They’ve to find a solution!

    Mimi Says:

    Maybe this explains why she wasn’t listed on the opening credits on the 17 min promo. I’m sure they wouldn’t take her off the opening credits just because she’s on maternity leave, no?

    SBristow Says:

    Oh, I think PB will lost a lot of viewers if she wouldn’t come back. I’ll be the first one.

    What a disaster. If that is true I won’t probably watch this show anymore.

    it’s her fault

    I should say that I can’t find this news anywhere else – no one at Entertainment Weekly, The Futon Critic, USA Today, Variety, Yahoo!, or any other entertainment news source I’ve checked is reporting this news. And I would think this is major enough that everyone would be reporting it because casting news usually spreads like wildfire. The only place I’ve read this at is Ausiello’s blog and Kristin Veitch from E!. My guess is he either made a huge mistake or the writers are purposely leaking fake spoilers to the press.

    NesseGirl Says:

    I feel bad now. Because I’m happy!! I probably shouldn’t be, but whatever. I HATED her character, and when Sarah and Michael got together I almost quit watching the show; but kept watching for the hotness that are the Scofield brothers. I won’t miss her if she is indeed gone, though it would be interesting to see how they write her out. If they do.
