'Resurrection' is the official title of 'Prison Break' Season 5. Fox

The Prison Break Season 5 promotional blitz is heating up at SXSW in Austin next week. Fans will be treated to a panel with series stars, an early look at the premiere episode, and a real Prison Break Escape Room with the vibe of the earlier seasons. For excited viewers not at SX, Fox will post a digital escape room on Instagram Friday, which reveals a scene from the premiere and a new Instagram handle with a message from Wentworth Miller’s character, Michael.

The free event will be held at Escape Game Austin all day on March 11 and 12, Deadline reports.  Fans will get a Prison Break photo of themselves too. The digital @OneLastBreak experience will involve Michael’s classic origami cranes to escape. While all this may seem like a lot, the first official Prison Break 2017 trailer garnered more than 50 million views in less than two days. The hype is real.

RSVP to the panel and premiere screening on March 12 here.

Fox released a Prison Break: Resurrection special last week, which contains tons of new spoilers for Season 5. If you’re heading to the advanced screening, be sure to check it out ahead of time, since it answers a lot of lingering questions, including how T-Bag finds out Michael is still alive.

Prison Break: Resurrection premieres April 4 on Fox.
