“All hail the king.”
Award-winning US drama Breaking Bad begins its fifth and final season on Showcase later this month. This season will be split into two parts across 2012 – 13.
Bryan Cranston returns as Walter White the chemistry teacher who, after learning he has terminal cancer, turns to a life of crime and embraces his alter ego whilst continuing to battle his duelling identities: a desperate husband and father trying to provide for his family, and a key player in the Albuquerque drug trade.
In a recent interview, Cranston said, “[In the premiere of Season 5], we pick up right where we left off. We’re cleaning up the pieces from last season’s huge ordeal where Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) was forced to meet his maker. It’s not as easy as Walter thought. And as we’ve discovered over the years, you don’t really know who Walter White is.”
It returns 7:30pm Sunday July 29, which is 2 weeks after its US screening.
