“No longer under the thumb of a mastermind criminal, Walt now assumes the role of one himself, as he and Jesse (Aaron Paul) look to build their own empire,” reads the official Season 5 logline. “Meanwhile, Skyler (Anna Gunn) struggles with the reality of her husband’s new role and Hank (Dean Norris) works to wrap up his investigation of Gus’ business.”

Breaking Bad‘s swan song season, to be split up into two eight-episode chunks, will kick off on July 15 at 10/9c.

  • AMC ran an ad last night during Mad Men that says they’re going to rerun all seasons of Breaking Bad starting in two weeks on Sunday nights until the new season starts. Just letting y’all know in case anyone is interested.

  • Where’s Jesse? I’d care much more to see him than Walt/Eisenberg. Release his poster please.

  • lol yes it is a good series but some of you people going on about this being the best show ever is pretty sad. yous must be really young and have not had to much tv experience, there are many more and have been many more shows that are of better quality , writing, acting and so forth. but yes i am looking forward to the 5th season, however the last 3-4 episodes of season 4 really began to get a little more over the top with the writing and storyline, its unfortunate but thats what happens when you just try to appease the fans and forget about what made the show interesting in the first place.

  • The amount of BlueIce boxed up behind King Hiesenberg has a street value of… get this: just under 50 million. Add the Million stack bricks (@least 11) beside Him…safe to say Walt’s in this for a bit more than Chemo/med bills, household utilities & typical Familial incidentals. HE’s a power hungry, adrenaline JUNKY…& most definately an inspiration to Us all!

  • I’m extremely inspired with your writing abilities as smartly as with the structure for your blog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a great weblog like this one today..

  • This is one program I try never to miss. However I did miss series 5. Can’t find it anywhere and didn’t know when it started hopefully it will be on repeat somewhere I will certainly look forward to seeing them it’s a terrific show.
