New Episodes of AMC's BREAKING BAD to Begin 7/14
BREAKING BAD star AaRon Paul has confirmed on Twitter that the popular AMC series will return with all new episodes beginning July 14th. "New episodes of Breaking Bad will air July 14th," announced Paul. "Get ready to break some s**t." The second half of the show's fifth and final season will now include eight additional episodes.
BREAKING BAD follows protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live.
With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family's financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis such as White's releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.
