Where are you located? If you are in the cod area they be frozen or partly frozen. The only way to pull them back directly is to take the rear drum off. You could try flexing the enclosed part of the cable to loosen any ice.
Next choice would be heat gun. If this is the case once released you need to get some silicone spray in so it doesn't happen again.
If not in the cold look for damage to the cables, and look to see if the return springs at the rear brakes is working correctly.
