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 JustJared.com: “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?
