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?

    i dont think that PB dumped her b/c i subscribe to PB magazine and they say that sara and michael r not over and some of the writers even discuss how they see the whole series ending and one of the writers even said that shed like to have misa married with kids. the show said that shed still have her job after maternity leave. it would have to be swc who made the decision and i dont think she dislikes working on the show or with went (she says such beautiful things about him)but maybe b/c she hasnt had her baby and theyve already been filming since june she might not return til next season. but i agree i might not watch if shes gone for good or they replace her. sarah is sara and no one else will ever be able to bring as much as she has to that role. the chemistry is amazing between wm and swc and the storyline is too developed for them to let it go and i honestly dont think swc would just up and go like that so i do believe shell be back if not this ssn then next.

    buh bye! if you watch pb for sarah, your a weirdo. first season she was okay, second – blah. she wont be missed.

    she was holding the show back. their love story was such a small small part. she’ll be forgotten in 2 episodes.

    She’s the reason season 2 sucked. They should have killed her off back in season 1 when they had the chance. Michael and Sara are an awful couple.

    First she ruins the show and then she leaves the sinking ship. A real class act.

    I bet she is probably just trying to blackmail Fox.

    I can’t believe anyone would stop watching the show just ‘cos she’s gone. She is totally expendable. Won’t be missed.

    It’s not the show’s fault if the actress doesn’t want to come back. It’s not like the show has a choice.

    I have always thought that SWC didn’t seem comfortable with the intrusion in her private life that being a celebrity brings. And I always got the impression she didn’t like being the love interest because her husband maybe didn’t like her being in such scenes. I wish she hadn’t taken on the role of Sara if she was planning a family so soon. I think she wants to be a fulltime mother and that’s her prerogative. So many fans are going to be disappointed if the rumour is true. Her character’s relationship with Michael has been bulit up over the last 2 seasons and to lose it would be damaging to the show. If she’s not returning I would rather they recast her role rather than kill her off. I need Michael to fight to be with a live woman rather than fight for a dead one.

    Stephanie Says:

    Well she have to respect her contrat right i don’t get it. Fine she have a baby but that not a reason to quit the show who made you famous. I just so angry and i don’t want to whatch the show anymore. MiSa or nothing. And another actress to play her caracter will suck.

    ABC Says:

    This sucks big time if she’s out what they are going to write in as Mike’s new love interest the new dark tranny looking woman on the show or Jodi the ****.I think this is maybe another commotion like at the end of season 1 oh she may not be back on season 2 and it was all to stir the audience.If this is true and it was her decision to leave the show to make movies who is she kidding she’s no movie star or has the appeal of one.She should just stick to the show and to tv as long as possible like Wentworth, he is sick of PB but he is still hanging in there so should she!

    I hope this is a rumor. If it’s not, I’m going to vomit in my shoes. Granted, while I am a huge fan of the show–and the boys–I really started to respect her character towards the end of season two. (She could definitely hold her own with the guys). I also liked the relationship between the Doc and Michael. I hope she’s not out. I’ll wait and hold on vomiting until I hear officially from Fox.
