I could have killed you today, and now you're here, you're going to wish I had.

Emerson Hauser, "Ernest Cobb"

The New Alcatraz is a recreation of Alcatraz, which closed in 1963 following the Disappearance of all 302 inmates and guards. In the official recaps of the episode which featured the prison, it was referred to as "Hauser's secret prison," or "the secret prison facility."


New Alcatraz is a facility presumably built under the supervision of Emerson Hauser, though whether he acted under government orders or not is currently unknown. Other members of the Alcatraz Task Force facilitate the prison, including former Alcatraz staff such as Lucy Banerjee and Dr. Beauregard. ("Pilot")  ("Ernest Cobb")  ("Kit Nelson")


1x01 IntoTheWoods
Hauser leads Sylvane to the outpost.

New Alcatraz is located in an unidentified forest near San Francisco, CA. The location itself appears to be underground, with the entrance located in an outpost. Access is granted through a pad, and by keying 6323, the doors open to reveal an elevator, which takes the visitors to the main cell block. ("Pilot")

In the official recap of "Pilot", the location was referred to as "a secret outpost hidden among the redwoods."

Facilities Edit

Cell blockEdit

The layout of New Alcatraz's cell block is an identical recreation of the main cell block of the original prison. It was given a modern look, replacing the crippled conditions of the first prison with lighter shades of red and white. The block is constantly guarded by armed, uniformed guards.

Interrogation roomsEdit

1x02 InterrogatingSylvane
Lucy interrogates Sylvane regarding Cobb's shootings.

An interrogation room, equipped with advanced lie detectors and camera, was used by Lucy Banerjee during her interrogation of Jack Sylvane. Sylvane's hands were placed on two glowing surfaces, which transmitted his brain waves to a screen in a room inspected by technicians. ("Ernest Cobb")


The morgue is supervised by Dr. Beauregard, who served as a doctor in the 1960's. The body of Kit Nelson was brought to Beauregard by Hauser, a short time after he was shot. Hauser also notes that he may need Beauregard's help with a favor for a friend. ("Kit Nelson")

The morgue also contains an old turntable, and it appears as if smoking is allowed. ("Kit Nelson")
